Now the press is seeking contributions for a new volume to explore both the teaching of Atwood’s publications since that time and 21st-century approaches to her earlier works, such as strategies for teaching The Handmaid’s Tale that draw on the Hulu TV series, the graphic novel, and/or The Testaments.

When Germans and Americans move back and forth between the continents, they participate in an important cross pollination influencing both the intellectual and artistic worlds of both cultures. Whether they came with the waves of people that journeyed westward in the wake of the German Revolution of 1848, or because of wars and economic needs, or from diaspora across Europe they brought new ideas and artistry to America. During the maturation, commercial expansion and the technological explosion of the new world in the twentieth century, programs fostering education like the Fulbright exchange, sent millions of Americans back to Germany to study, teach, report, work and to live permanently.

Supporting Multilingual Writers: Hands-on Strategies and Conversations

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

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).

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.
