Undergraduate research has proliferated at community colleges over the last decade through course-based research experiences, multi-institutional collaborations, and federal funding. The spring 2021 Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR), guest edited by Jim Hewlett (Finger Lakes Community College-SUNY), will examine undergraduate research at community colleges. How is undergraduate research implemented at community and technical colleges? How is undergraduate research used to train the workforce? How have community colleges institutionalized undergraduate research?

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Study and Scrutiny: Research on Young Adult Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

The confluence of sports culture and sociopolitical issues has a long history. Memorable examples of athletes of yesteryear embracing activism include Tommie Smith and John Carlos raising their fists against institutional racism, Muhammad Ali opposing the Vietnam War, and Billie Jean King fighting for gender equity. Contemporary examples include Colin Kaepernick protesting police violence against people of color and the U.S. women’s national soccer team charging U.S. Soccer with gender discrimination. Each example underscores the reality that athletes are so much more than the games they play. Many authors have honored this tradition through the fictional athletes they portray in contemporary sports-related young adult literature (YAL).

MSA 2020 - Street Smarts: On Modernist Know-How

updated: 
Friday, March 13, 2020 - 3:07pm
Modernist Studies Association (Brooklyn NY, Oct. 22-25, 2020)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 18, 2020

DEADLINE EXTENDED - NOW MARCH 18, 2020. This panel pursues MSA's conference theme this year, "Streets," by discussing "Street Smarts."  

Modernism has its smart sets, not just Mencken’s but in Stein’s salons and Woolf’s Bloomsbury, and in the serious philosophical engagements (and antipathies) of T.S. Eliot, Dora Marsden, Samuel Beckett, and others. But how do “street-smarts” inform conversations about modernism’s epistemological and intellectual positions? How do the streets, with their marginal figures and spaces, refine critical views of what counts as knowing? How do the streets re-orient epistemology with a phenomenology of everyday things?

Monday, June 15, 2020

Friday 3rd July 2020, University Centre Shrewsbury. 

We would like to invite you to a one-day symposium exploring Darwin’s origins in Shropshire. We will discuss the effects of Shrewsbury and its surrounding area on the young Charles Darwin. What were the influences of the Darwin and Wedgwood family members on Darwin’s ambitions? What role did female relatives such as his mother Susannah Darwin (née Wedgwood) and his sister Caroline have on Darwin’s formation as a scientist?

Alienation and De-alienation in the Composition Classroom (CEA at MLA 2021)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 4, 2020 - 4:15pm
Andrew Beutel/College English Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 7, 2020

This panel, sponsored by the College English Association, explores how the concept of alienation can be applied to a field in which it has not received very much attention: composition pedagogy. Generally meaning an undesirable separation between self and world (i.e., other human beings, nature, and social roles, norms, and institutions), alienation has been analyzed in various contexts by philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, and critical theorists. While it came to be viewed as problematic and outmoded with the rise of postmodernism, the concept is far from obsolete today. On the contrary, alienation remains both a widely experienced psychosocial issue and a vital theoretical and diagnostic tool.

"While there is a growing and prominent literature on the experiences of first-generation undergraduate students, there is a lack of research on the experiences of first-generation graduate students. People tend to assume that if someone makes it through the bachelor’s degree, they enter graduate school on a level playing field." - Bailey Smolarek, Inside Higher Ed

This proposed roundtable session for MLA 2021 seeks to explore the challenges and experiences faced by first-generation PhDs, both as graduate students and in their post-graduate careers. Some possible topics for exploration include:
