Supporting Multilingual Writers: Hands-on Strategies and Conversations

With internationalization of higher education and recent student demographics changes, multilingual students are no longer “contained” in ESL programs (Matsuda, 2006; Poe & Zhang-Wu, forthcoming). Many of multilingual students matriculate directly into mainstream writing classes, highlighting the importance of linguistically responsive instruction at the tertiary level (Gallagher & Haan, 2018). This awareness is especially crucial for faculty in college writing programs because of their vast reach of instructional impact. Despite this need, college writing faculty often have limited training in supporting multilingual students (Atkinson et al., 2015; CCCC Statement on Second Language Writing and Writers, 2014).

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

For a collection under contract with Lexington Books, we seek submissions that address both historical and theoretical perspectives of “Hallyu” that specifically intersect with issues regarding gender, sexuality, and stereotype. We anticipate that the edited volume will be cross-disciplinary and bring insights from international scholars. We welcome papers that address new research and cultural products that are relevant and current. Space for visuals is limited so non-textual elements should be included sparingly. Abstracts are due August 1, 2020 and acceptances will go out August 20.

Completed essays are due in Microsoft Word by December 1, 2020 and should be around 10,000 words in English.

Professional Transformations: Leadership Roles in Higher Ed for Humanities Professionals

updated: 
Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 9:51am
Catherine Thomas / Georgia Gwinnett College
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

This collection investigates how humanities teacher-scholars grapple with the opportunities and challenges of leadership roles, as well as connect them with their teaching and research endeavors. It offers the opportunity for a sustained and serious conversation about the multiple professional roles many humanities specialists play. It provides strategies for professional growth, sustenance, and satisfaction, while also meaningfully considering the relationship between our disciplinary areas of study, our academic training, and the lives we inhabit and aspire to. We seek research-inflected essays that address various types of institutions and leadership roles and that speak to lived experience in these multiple roles.

Beyond Borders: Mapping Sexualities and the Sexualisation of Spaces

International Conference - May 6 and 7, 2021

Institut d’Études Transtextuelles et Transculturelles (IETT)

Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3

 

This conference will examine the relationship between the notions of boundaries and sexuality from an interdisciplinary, transnational and transcultural perspective. In particular, it aims to map the ways in which space determines sexualities and sexual practices, and to understand, in turn, how sex structures and limits the spaces in which we live, and how we relate to them.

Futures of Queer Reproduction (NEMLA, March 2021)

updated: 
Monday, July 20, 2020 - 11:21am
Northeast MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As José Esteban Muñoz has argued, the antirelational or antisocial thesis—the polemic against reproduction, the insistence that the figure of the child serves only to promise a collective future that thwarts and forecloses anything not assimilable to heteronormativity—fails to account for modes of futurity that are already legible now, particularly in aesthetic objects that serve as “maps” of concrete utopian thinking. Such maps, historically relational and collectively forged, open spaces for thinking about a future that is not yet here—but also help us locate elements of the utopian that are already present.

Grace Kelly: An Understudied Irish-American Icon

updated: 
Monday, July 20, 2020 - 11:13am
Mary Burke, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Grace Kelly (1928-82) was a very successful Catholic Irish-American film actress who received the title of Princess Grace of Monaco upon her marriage in 1956, a decade in which, even though members of her ethnic community were increasingly assimilated into American society, they were still excluded from certain very exclusive roles. Thus, the impact of Kelly’s wedding cannot be underestimated: filmed by her studio, MGM, it was watched on television by an estimated 30 million people, which made it one of the largest international media events of that decade.
