"The Spaces and Places that Mattered: Our Literacy Narratives" Panel for 3/14-15, 2014 CSUF Acacia Group Conference (12/4/13)

Sunday, November 3, 2013 - 10:34pm
Dr. Martha A. Webber

The literacy narrative is a significant genre in the field of rhetoric and composition: Linda Brodkey's "Writing on the Bias," Richard Rodriguez's Hunger of Memory, and Mike Rose's Lives on the Boundary all work to demystify how these scholars came to a range of literacies and found a place for themselves in the academy and ultimately as professors of writing. At the same time their narratives demand readers to explore larger considerations about the socio-economic and cultural components of literate development and the valuation of English literacy in American society.

The English Civil War in the Romantic and Victorian Period. France-England, 1789-1901. University of Rouen, 9-10 October 2014

Sunday, November 3, 2013 - 3:33pm
University of Rouen, France.

Nowadays the English Civil War is a mostly forgotten episode in British history on both sides of the Channel. Yet, this has not always been the case. In the nineteenth century, the "Great Rebellion" was a reference point that helped contemporaries to make sense of the political upheavals on the Continent; it was also an inexhaustible source of inspiration for a wide range of artists and writers. The phrase "English Revolution" – which echoes the "French Revolution" – was coined by François Guizot to refer to the period spanning the years 1640-1660. It reflects the social, religious and political changes that affected the British Isles in the middle of the seventeenth century.

Sunday, November 3, 2013 - 2:48pm
National Endowment for the Humanities

John N. King of The Ohio State University and Mark Rankin of James Madison University will direct a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers on the construction and dissemination of books and the nature of reading during the era of the Tudor monarchs (1485-1603). In particular, they plan to pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the emergence of new reading practices associated with the Renaissance and Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which readers responded to elements such as book layout, typography, illustration, and paratext (e.g., prefaces, glosses, and commentaries).
