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.

The Department of Humanities at Paine College is requesting proposals for the 20th Annual Conference on the Harlem Renaissance to be held on the campus of historic Paine College. The theme for 2016 is “Precursors, Periods, and Postscripts: Critical Thought, Beliefs, Productions, and Activism before, during, and after the Harlem Renaissance.” The focus for presentations will center on the literature, history, philosophy, art, and music, as well as inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches from the social and political sciences, economics, and STEM.

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.

We hope to stimulate academic research and discussion around the theme of cognition, in relation to language (including language teaching), literature, translation and culture. In every aspect of our lives we make judgments and assessments and encounter judgments and assessments made by others, without necessarily examining closely the perspectives, methodologies or theoretical assumptions on which these judgments are based. What established procedures and canons of seeing and understanding govern the way we teach, the way we translate, or the direction of our research in any given area? Is there a need for these procedures or canons to be revised, modified or even abandoned altogether?

Conference Date: April 7-8, 2017

Deadline for Proposals: January 27, 2017

Theme: “Altered States, Times, Perspectives”

The 25th annual Midwestern Conference on Literature, Language and Media (MCLLM) at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL, is currently accepting proposals for 15-minute papers from individuals and panels.  We are particularly interested in papers that explore this year’s theme: Altered States, Times, Perspectives. Purposefully broad in scope, this theme offers researchers a chance to present argument-driven papers on topics such as (but not limited to):

The Politics of the Personal Narrative Essay (Deadline 9-30)

updated: 
Monday, September 19, 2016 - 12:14pm
Northeast Modern Language Association - March 23-26, 2017 - Baltimore, MD
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel will explore the potential (and threshold) of the personal narrative essay in our first-year writing courses. As opposed to other writing assignments (the research paper, the persuasive essay) that appear more geared toward developing transferable skills, the personal narrative is often considered, to borrow from Elizabeth Wardle, a “mutt genre,” meaning a genre important only in first-year writing courses to which they are also exclusive. However, this panel carefully considers how the personal narrative prompts and encourages such skills as rhetorical maneuvering, genre awareness, and metacognition, which many Transfer Studies scholars (see for instance: Devitt [2007]; Nowacek [2011]; or Russell [2002]) have often prioritized.

Experience and Education: Pragmatism in the English Studies Classroom - Panel @ NeMLA 2017

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural studies or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

There is a subtle irony in the fact that Thomas Hoccleve, whose corpus of early fifteenth-century poems is saturated with the concepts of recovery and rehabilitation, has been at the center of a decades-long process of poetic and pedagogic rehabilitation in university English departments. No longer brushed aside as a mere epigone of Geoffrey Chaucer, the traditional nucleus of Medieval English literature syllabi, Hoccleve now claims a legitimate place in the late medieval canon.  But what is that place exactly, as far as college classrooms go?
