Workshop on the Common Reading

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 3:57pm
Courtney Milleson / Amarillo College

Greetings all –

Amarillo College will host a workshop specifically geared to the development, implementation and assessment of Common Reader programs. This workshop was born from talking with other Common Reader folks at the Annual First-Year Experience conference, and their desire to 'talk shop' about assessment and other how-to areas.

The workshop is geared toward those responsible for planning, implementing and assessing Common Reader programs. It would be appropriate for those currently involved in Common Reader programs, or those interested in beginning programs on their campus. Existing programs and those in the planning stages are welcome!

WLA Conference 2012, November 7-10, 2012

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 2:20pm
Western Literature Association

Lubbock, Texas, is nicknamed "The Hub City" because it has historically been the crossroads of the vast, multicultural South Plains—home to Native peoples for 15,000 years, first dubbed the Llano Estacado (Staked Plains) by Coronado in 1540, and once referred to as the American Serengeti for its massive herds of buffalo, pronghorn, and deer. The WLA's 47th annual conference will take place at the Overton Hotel in Lubbock across the street from Texas Tech University. We will honor the careers of Distinguished Achievement Award winners Richard Slotkin and filmmaker and producer Joss Whedon, and engage with featured writers Annie Proulx, Christina Garcia, Barry Lopez, Naomi Shihab Nye, and others.

Highlights include:

Travel is an important activity in the Middle Ages, and, therefore, plays a large role in the literature of the period. Pilgrimages, merchant trade, ecclesial and diplomatic missions, etc. are but a few cultural and political activities that involve travel and are described in the many genres of medieval literature. This panel seeks to discuss the various artistic ways travel is described in medieval literature and how we can come to understand, what we can learn and appreciate about the nature and importance of travel in medieval culture. Papers on travel found in any literary genre of this period are most welcome. Please send via email a 300-word proposal by May 30 to Dr.
