Digital America - A new journal on digital culture and American life

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 4:07pm
Digital America

Digital America is a new online journal venture from the University of Richmond that seeks to publish exceptional student work. We believe that Millennials have a unique perspective on the impact of digitization. We also believe that student work is often left undiscussed both in the classroom in in the larger academic community. We are looking for essays, commentary, new media projects, short films, digital art, and documentary pieces that engage digitization and/or digital culture and American life. Our definition of "American" life is broad and includes the role of globalization on American culture.

Critical Examinations of Distance Education Transformation across Disciplines

Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 2:13pm
IGI Global Publishing

Introduction: Distance education has had a long and complex history, but these histories are unique to disciplines or fields of study. Long has distance education been discussed as its own field of study, but the specifics of the field are unique to their respective disciplines. Some disciplines rely heavily on LMS (learning management systems) for the creation and dissemination of knowledge for distance education students. Other disciplines rely on a combination of technologies outside of a prescribed LMS to foster student learning. Every discipline has had a different resonation and understanding of the impact of distance education on its faculty, students, areas of study, and content materials.

The Thin End of the Wedge: Modernism in Little Magazines and Little Theatres; Sept. 30, NeMLA April 3-6, 2014

Bill Waddell / Northeasst Modern Language Association

As we've started to move through the centennials of the publication of key modernist texts and that era begins to seem nearly as remote as the Elizabethan, its major figures the equivalents of the Elgin marbles, this seminar proposes to focus on the times and places when all that was, well, messier, and much more contingent. By (re)examining the literary reviews, little magazines, and little theatre experiments of the first third of the 20th century, the session will try to see modernism (again) as a movement happening in real time, on both sides of the Atlantic, defining itself, cautiously or outrageously, and being resisted. What gestures of modernist energy can a fresh look at these independent projects reveal? What can they remind us of?

Teaching Over-looked, Non-Traditional Medieval & Renaissance Texts

updated: 
Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 8:19am
This Rough Magic / www.thisroughmagic.org

All too often, the same canonical works and authors find their way into Medieval and Renaissance Literature courses. While canonical literature is extremely important and not to be avoided, a great many authors (i.e., Cyril Tourneur) and texts (i.e., Life of St. Margaret of Antioch) go un-noticed. We are therefore looking for short essays that encourage readers to try non-traditional, over-looked, teachable texts inside their classrooms. Essays should answer the following:

•How can the author/text in question be used in a particular class?

•What audience (undergraduate/graduate) should the author/text in question be geared towards?

•What themes/ideas can one cover using the author/text in question?
