Teaching Critical Race Theory

updated: 
Friday, June 9, 2023 - 7:02am

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

This panel queries the notion of “critical race theory” and how to teach racial issues whether or not one is specifically a “critical race theorist.” This topic is especially urgent during a time of right-wing “anti-‘woke’” agendas that seek to erase the very concept of race from public education and to attack as “divisive” any effort to offer a historically informed and rigorous accounting for ongoing inequality and racism in American society. Race is perversely both denied and invoked as that topic which is too disturbing to teach and yet absolutely necessary for the maintenance of normative political structures.

We invite applications that seek to engage with the theme in whatever sense feels appropriate to you. What does the future look like? What will happen to the earth? How do we make sense of our time? What does art do for us? How do we make meaningful art? How does climate change affect our art-making? How do we perform apocalypse? How do we perform care?

On August 30, 2021, the United States withdrew its military forces from Afghanistan, marking the end of the longest war in American history. During the twenty years of the Global War on Terror, between two and three million American service members engaged in post 9-11 war operations. American support for veterans and their families during this period was remarkably high. Beginning in 2010, Admiral Michael Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, referred to American public and private support for veterans as a “Sea of Goodwill.”

In a recent blogpost, Bill Gates announces the beginning of the age of AI. Gates’ enthusiastic pitch for AI is not limited to it being a groundbreaking technological advancement. He sees it as a powerful tool for achieving social and environmental justice. Gates notes “achievement in math is going down across the country, especially for Black, Latino, and low-income students” and he claims that “AI can help turn that trend around.”

Extended Deadline: Indigenous Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2023)

updated: 
Sunday, June 4, 2023 - 4:54am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

Speculative Fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate, not totally free of the specter of history, but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. Because settler histories work towards indigenous erasure, the question of individual and communal autonomy is central. In this context, Speculative Fiction has become a key component in the Indigenous fight to regain personal and communal autonomy from narratives of erasure and abjection.

PAMLA 2023 Special Session

October 26-29, 2023

This panel is and isn’t about poetry. At its core, it is a panel about our reading habits surrounding poetry, the ways in which the definition of poetry has shifted in its capaciousness, about how we recognize a poem, what has happened to poetry’s public in the wake of Amanda Gorman’s powerful reading of "The Hill We Climb" in Joseph Biden’s presidential inauguration, and what poetry might become in a heavily digitized, perhaps even metaversal future. The specter that haunts this panel is Stanley Fish’s “How to Recognize a Poem When You See One,” but his essay is really just one starting point in how critics have been fervently trying to recognize our reading habits on poetry.
