Thomas R. Watson Conference in Rhetoric and Composition
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 8, 2021

The thirteenth biennial Thomas R. Watson Conference in Rhetoric and Composition, which will be held virtually from April 21-23, 2021, will focus on policies and practices for planning and convening antiracist conferences. The exigence for our theme is global and local. This year’s uprisings for Black liberation have only reaffirmed the need for institutions of higher education to confront their roles in perpetuating a white supremacist system and, with the BIPOC students, faculty, and staff who have endured this violence and marginalization, to create just and equitable structures in its place.

“The book always aims at installing an order, whether it is the order in which it is deciphered, the order in which it is to be understood, or the order intended by the authority who commanded or permitted the work.” (Roger Chartier, The Order of the Book)

If, according to Roger Chartier, “the book always aims at installing an order,” what does it mean for the book to be out of order? Is it broken? Is it committing some kind of transgression? Is it still a book? What is a book supposed to do, and what does it mean when it falls short of its perceived functions – or overshoots them?

Decay and Regeneration (Virtual Graduate Student Symposium)

updated: 
Friday, December 18, 2020 - 12:04pm
George Washington University English Graduate Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 29, 2021

The theme of decay and regeneration captures our current global moment of political uncertainty, environmental catastrophe, public health crises, and mass protest. In the past few years, we have witnessed a once-in-a-century pandemic; global protests in response to police brutality; a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season; the largest wildfires in recorded Amazonian, American, and Australian history; the continued resurgence of fascist political ideologies; and the potential collapse of liberal democracy as we know it.

In a time when the majority of our interactions are happening in virtual spaces, ILSA seeks via its 2021 gathering to remember, affirm, and critically consider our embeddedness in particular landscapes, in diverse Indigenous territories, on land that--as Taqralik Partridge reminds us--“does not belong to us.” Instead, she asserts, “nunattinut pigijauvugut”:“We belong to the land.”

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

 Children's Literature has been taught in undergraduate classrooms since at least the early 1970s and has grown to become a staple of English literature programs. Children's literature classes are typically among the most popular English lit course offerings and often draw in students from other disciplines. It is easy to understand why; children's literature classes promise students the opportunity to revisit familiar works with fresh eyes. With the rise of children's book purchases in the midst of the pandemic, the popularity of the discipline is unlikely to abate.
