“The Work of Community Colleges”
11-12 OctoberTruckee Meadows Community College in Reno, NV
Plenary Speaker: Dan Melzer, Associate Professor, University of California, Davis
In his memoir, Bootstraps, Victor Villanueva shrewdly points out that “The community college is torn between vocational training and preparing the unprepared for traditional university work. And it seems unable to resolve the conflict.” This view of community colleges hasn’t changed much since Villanueva’s book was published in the early 1990s.
The Affects of Pedagogy in Literary Studies
Editors: Dr HIlary Emmett (University of East Anglia) & Dr Christopher Lloyd (University of Hertfordshire)
This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings. This special issue will take as its premise the notion that we must consider emotions as work in order to obtain a fuller picture of what transpires with teachers and learners in institutional contexts and beyond.

Writing allows our students to consider multiple perspectives and take on a variety of different roles, from personal reflection to creative writing, rhetorical analysis, and professional discourses. This focus on writing roles and identities gives students the opportunity to explore and develop different parts of themselves, from self-reflection to becoming engaged citizens and mastering the skills they will need as professionals. Foregrounding the notion of duality and multiplicity in student writing opens the door to several different critical discourses in considering audience, purpose, and students’ engagement with multiple texts and argumentative positions central to their own research and writing.

Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019
University College London (UCL)
24-25 May 2019
John Rodden closes the preface to his 1989 book, The Politics of Literary Reputation: The Making and Claiming of ‘St. George’ Orwell with the assertion:
Orwell poses unusual, and valuable, difficulties by virtue of the complex, highly personal response to him by readers; and he offers unusual, if complicated, opportunities by his politicized reception and the diversity of his audiences. The rare and auspicious fact is that Orwell has been both an extraordinarily popular serious writer and a critically acclaimed one. (xiii)
