Creative writing found a home in universities in the United States in the early part of the twentieth century and grew in popularity in the postwar era. Hundreds of creative writing programs now exist across the nation, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, as writers earn any one of a number of degrees: BAs, BFAs, MAs, MFAs, and Ph.Ds.

Young Perspectives to Legal Education in Universities

The law is in our lives since the 22nd century BC, when a Sumerian ruler Ur-Nammu created the first law code

which consisted of casuistic statements. Since then, every society happened to create their on laws in order to live in

ordonnance and security, which would bring justice to their lives. For Plato, justice is an asset establishing rational

order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.

Shakespeare scholars regularly encounter social justice issues in the material that we study and teach. Most often in the classroom our engagement with such issues takes the form of thematic identification and critical parsing. Yet we struggle to form more direct, material connections between coursework and social justice work. This book is for professors of early modern literature who want to heighten the intellectual impact of their courses by thoughtfully using their classrooms as laboratories for social formation and action.

Saturday, January 28, 2017

   The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme  of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and  virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.

2017 Blackfriars Conference

Monday, April 10, 2017

On odd numbered years since the first October the Blackfriars Playhouse opened, scholars from around the world have gathered in Staunton, during the height of the Shenandoah Valley’s Fall colors, to hear lectures, see plays, and explore early modern theatre. In 2017, the American Shakespeare Center’s Education and Research Department will once again host Shakespeareans, scholars and practitioners, to share ideas about Shakespeare in the study and Shakespeare on the stage and to find ways that these two worlds – sometime in collision – can collaborate.

Taking Flight: assembling, becoming, queering Deleuze Studies Conference and Camp

updated: 
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 9:30pm
10th International Deleuze Studies Conference, Toronto, 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Taking Flight speaks to Deleuze and Guattari’s petition to leave bounded territories and to connect and to create and to “establish a logic of the AND.” Privileging intense and transformative encounters with others, they ask us not to cling to the state apparatus that reinforces the normative or the binary machines which rigidify us (man-woman, adult-child, straight-queer etc.), but to invent more supple and fluid connections, which, in turn, create new concepts, new thought, and new experiences. This invitation for anomalous creations and diversifications across and beyond disciplines ruptures genealogies, totalities, and unifications.

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)

The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. Writing occurs beyond the classroom or institutional formats, yet ‘schooling’ still defines much of how we write. Students and instructors participate in public discourse through diverse media literacies, developing writing practices that compose our relationships with individuals, education, institutions, and events. Yet, institutionalized learning often prioritizes specific formats and page-based pedagogy.

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” EXTENDED Submission deadline: November 11, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.

Education is central to human advancement.  Those engaged in shaping and delivering a meaningful education face a multiplicity of challenges not least in regards to pedagogy and andragogy, but also due to the demand on resources at every level. The importance of higher education to a country's future in a global economy has become increasingly a topic of debate and discussion. As a consequence, those in leadership roles in higher education (HE) are faced with often conflicting demands from various stakeholders. The pressures for those in management roles in higher education are considerable and this is equally true of those who work assiduously to ensure that education is relevant and fit for purpose.

English literary studies, as a discipline, is fundamentally passé and is in a state of impasse; the sooner we realise this, the faster we can move on and make an epistemic shift in the Humanities in defining what constitutes “literari-ness”; most importantly – it has little relevance and serves no purpose in the Indian context because the Indian literary tradition – which is thousands of years old - cannot be determined by a British literary tradition, that at the most, is still quite recent. It is incredibly problematic that we refer to British cultural motifs in order to talk about our desires as an Indian society. We have to be willing to recreate a literary tradition that refers to the Indian literary-Sanskritic past.

Most often, borders are thought of as spaces of division that, according to Gloria Anzaldúa, “distinguish us from them.” However, borders also create their own spaces, as “two worlds merging to form a third country — a border culture [where] duality is transcended.” The presence of multiple languages and dialects in border contexts and the language experiences of linguistically diverse writers provides teachers and students with opportunities and challenges as they engage writing in personal, social, educational, professional, and community situations where audience, purpose, and language vary.
