Thursday, February 29, 2024

I am looking for a few educators and researchers who are interested in using generative AI in the classroom to promote cultural studies and learning language. I plan to propose a panel for this year’s ELO conference, which will be held online from July 18 to 21.

The student-centered ethic is well established in humanities classrooms, so the question for this panel is how to use AI to further this goal. In particular, this year’s organizers are desirous of submissions that consider community and creativity. Papers that explore strategies to harness the potential for positive futures and/or elicit awareness of dystopian potentials are welcome.

In recent years, we’ve witnessed a growing emphasis in academia on fostering greater
diversity, equity, and inclusion, including developing a clearer sense of one’s
positionality and commitment to such initiatives. Writing effective narratives, such as
specific syllabus policies, diversity statements, land acknowledgments, and positionality
statements, is crucial in promoting a more inclusive academic environment.

Steinbeck, Race, and Ethnicity A Special Issue of Steinbeck Review

The Steinbeck Review
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2024

Like many American authors who rose to prominence in the first half of the twentieth century, John Steinbeck came from an economically privileged Protestant family of European descent and grew up in a socially and religiously conservative environment.  Like many of his contemporaries, he distanced himself from his upbringing in his fiction, rejecting the authority of government, of institutions, and of received cultural wisdom.  He sided with the poor and dispossessed, he stood with the underdog, and he tried to give the downtrodden a voice through his fiction.  His writing indicates that he aligned himself with the ideology of mid-century liberalism and considered himself liberal, progressive, and open minded.

Agnotology, the study of culturally induced ignorance or doubt, has emerged as a critical lens through which to examine the production, dissemination, and contestation of knowledge within various spheres of human expression. This interdisciplinary panel seeks to investigate the intersections of agnotology with literature, culture, and the arts, and to explore how these fields both reflect and contribute to the construction of ignorance and uncertainty.

We welcome proposals for papers that engage with the following topics (but are not limited to):

Revenge is Mad Hard: Fat Ham and the Question of Cultural Reclamation

 

Since its digital debut in April of 2021, subsequent Pulitzer win, off-Broadway run, Broadway run, and recent flurry of regional productions, Fat Ham has taken North America by storm. In re-framing the story of Hamlet from within a Black, southern family barbeque, playwright James Ijames has opened the door for questions about cultural authority, the exchange of cultural capital, mediation, storytelling and adaptation methods, the need for increased representation in canonical stories, the methods through which marginalized voices might reclaim cultural capital, and more.

This conference aims to discuss the representation of epidemic remedies in medical

methodological observations in mind. Firstly, the pivotal role of the plague and the
Spanish influenza as opening and closing points to the selected timeframe. Secondly,
the working definition of “remedy” as a cure “for a disease, disorder, injury, etc.; a
medicine or treatment that promotes healing or alleviates symptoms.” (OED, remedy
2). This comprehensive definition intends to allow for historical specification and
