Making the Most of Our Disciplinarity: Writing Connections Among Composition and Literature Courses

Depending on the institution, the department, the politics, and the history of a space, composition and literature faculty often face constant pressure to legitimize or explain the work that we do. However, few opportunities are available to do so in real and tangible ways with departments and faculty outside of our own. This panel seeks to explore the ways that writing and English courses function within and across institutions throughout the country in an effort to develop real-time strategies that increase the visibility of our work, including its interdisciplinarity. How can we increase collaboration with faculty outside of our own silos in order to foster a stronger writing culture across campuses?

Climate Fictions / Indigenous Studies

Critical Indigenous studies can neither be perceived as niche, nor trivialized as topical. In the way climate-capitalism has become an existential threat, a sincere engagement with Indigenous knowledges has become ineluctable. This conference seeks to initiate a multidisciplinary conversation on climate change, as conceived by, and re-inscribed within, Indigenous literatures. So far within the small domain of English Humanities, contemporary climate fiction by Indigenous authors have presented an urgent need to converse with scientific and social-scientific approaches to climate change.

Rediscovering Victorian Latin America

MLA 2020 "Just in Time" Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 5, 2019

 

CFP for MLA's extended deadline for "Just in Time" panel proposals.

MLA Annual convention will meet January 9-12, 2020 in Seattle, WA, USA. 

I am hoping to round out a panel titled "Rediscovering Victorian Latin America" (or something to this effect). Essentially, it aims to stimulate a current examination of what Latin America means to Victorian studies today via innovative cross-cultural readings of either Victorian literature, periodicals, and cultural products, Latino immigration to the UK, or British colonial settlements in Hispanophone South America/Caribbean. The panel may also possibly reflect upon earlier scholarship in this sub-field (if that is of concern to any participants).
