"Short-Lived Tactical Connections: Owning Our Best, Failed Efforts at Community Outreach "

Proposals due January 6, 2011

One of the most salient themes within current service-learning scholarship is the importance of sustainability; Ellen Cushman puts it best when she argues that thoughtless practitioners have a "hit it or quit it" attitude. Committed teachers and community members work hard to establish strong ties between the university and the community; some scholars have even developed long standing, community-based writing centers that serve as models for the country (Utah, Pittsburgh, 826 Valencia).

[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] CFP: Time, Memory, and Region in American Literature

Monday, January 3, 2011 - 12:39pm
American Literature Association (conference) Robert Murray, (panel chair)

This panel, proposed for the 2011 American Literature Association convention in Boston, will investigate the intersections of time, memory, and region in American Literature of the 19th and 20th centuries. What are the consequences of considering time as Bergsonian duration, or from the perspective of Heidegger, Sartre, or Deleuze? How is time as space related to the idea of time as geographical location? Considerations might include older views, such as Sartre on Faulkner, or newer work, such as Wai Chee Dimock's ideas of "deep time" and nation-states in American literature. We seek papers that explore the ways in which time might be seen as an element of place, and consequently investigate alternate models of regionality which include temporality.
