Interdisciplinary Idealism: The Role of the Humanities in Capstone Projects

Capstones are an established part of undergraduate curricula. Often a requirement in degree programs, these investigative and research-based projects stress relevance and practicality. They are, thus, often promoted as necessities; they demand critical thinking, clear analytic writing, methodological application, and for those projects collaborative in their structure, teamwork and negotiation. Capstones encourage inventive and imaginative thought, reinforcing activities we associate with what we might call the ideal “humanist” – philosophically and ethically engaged, socially aware, and community minded.

While the study of modernism typically focuses on avant-garde formal experimentation, the collected volume of essays, Resistance and Reform: Modernist Women and American Social Engagement, offers an important corrective by insisting on a reassessment of the roots of modernist experimentation and innovation. This volume will include essays that analyze the careers and writings of modernist women writers during the first half of the twentieth century whose artistic productions were closely tied to or invested in various forms of social engagement, community activism, political resistance, or cultural change.

The 49th NeMLA Annual ConventionApril 12-15, 2018 Pittsburgh, PA

This panel seeks to investigate particular narrative strategies of describing the non-human experience in literature, drama, philosophy, and art throughout the ages (not simply the 21st century). Papers for this panel are invited to reflect the following questions: how are ideas of the non-human transmitted in literature, art, and other media and how can we assess them? What trends, novel methods, gaps, or fallbacks are present as humans attempt to understand the other? Further, how do narrative strategies across media or time periods compare or contrast?

Possible approaches to investigating narrative strategies may include but are non limited to:

David Sandner, California State University, Fullerton
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 31, 2017

 In Spring, 2016, California State University, Fullerton hosted a singular Philip K. Dick Conference, bringing scholars from around the world to the place where he left his manuscripts and papers. We currently seek chapter submissions to join the strong core work from the conference in an edited volume that reinvents the study of major American author Philip K. Dick now that he is considered to be a major 20th-century American author. Where previous scholarly collections set out to explain why we should read Dick, our collection interrogates why we must and do—why he has become a touchstone for our culture today.
