Public/Sex: Connecting Sexuality and Service Learning--A Special Issue of Reflections

updated: 
Sunday, September 6, 2009 - 4:58pm
Reflections: A Journal of Writing, Service Learning, and Community Literacy

The spring 2010 issue of Reflections will explore the interplay between sexuality and literacy, asking us to reconsider the normative structures that position us as particular kinds of sexed/sexualized/gendered people, with certain trajectories of desire and intimacy. We invite authors and artists to reflect with us on community work (broadly conceived) that challenges our normative understanding of "service," "learning," "community," and "citizenship," particularly with regard to the multiple and intersecting discourses of gender and sexuality. What are the different ways in which we approach these issues? What are different ways in which these issues are already gendered, already sexualized?

[UPDATE] Writing Faculties: Intersections of Creativity and Pedagogy (NeMLA April 7-11, 2010; due 9/15/09)

updated: 
Sunday, September 6, 2009 - 3:48pm
Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Annual Conference, Montreal

The purpose of this panel is to mark intersections between creativity and pedagogy, focusing on teacher-poets.

How does working in a classroom inform the making of poetry?

Papers are invited on poetry by educators. Authors that might be considered include Philip Levine, Gerald Locklin, Tony Hoagland, and Nathan Graziano. While this will be a critical panel, presenters might also comment on their own creative compositions inspired by or about teaching.

Please send abstracts (250-350 words) to Noel Sloboda (njs16@psu.edu) before September 15th, 2009.

"Epistolary (Inter)actions: The Sociable(?) Space of Letters" (SCSECS 2010)

updated: 
Sunday, September 6, 2009 - 3:13pm
Terra Caputo/Allegheny College

Despite the seemingly private and solitary nature of letter writing, there are a number of ways in which letters and, in a broader sense, the epistolary form work to create communities of readers and ideas that extend beyond writer and recipient. In the spirit of the larger conference theme, "Solitude and Sociability," this panel invites papers that explore ways in which epistolarity works to create unique, surprising, or conflicted communities in eighteenth-century English literature and culture. This panel is particularly interested in papers that engage in innovative ways with issues of form: in what ways does epistolarity work to enable and/or preclude sociability in various eighteenth-century literary (and other discursive) contexts?
