No Guardrails: Teaching and Learning in Times of Trauma

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2023 - 9:04am
Melissa J. Jones
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2023

This collection seeks essays willing to explore what it means to flounder and flop--to be afraid and uncomfortable--and to get back up to teach (one hopes) another day. For this is the precarious new normal of teaching and learning in post-pandemic America, where primary and secondary educators are fleeing the profession in droves--citing too much pressure, too little pleasure--and murmurs of “quiet quitting” across college campuses suggest that higher ed might not be far behind.

Writing the ‘Good Life’ in Narratives of Canada (Journal Canada & Beyond)

University of La Laguna/University of Alicante (Spain)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2023

In her book The Promise of Happiness (2010), Sara Ahmed explains how the concept of happiness is related to heteronormative notions of the “good life”: “The good life is the life that is lived in the right way, by doing the right things, over and over again” (Ahmed 2010, 36).Questioning the promise of a good life leads to unhappiness, but unhappiness (unlike happiness) can be productive for social change as it fosters a possibility to open to new affective spaces in the subject’s life. Ahmed describes individuals’ urges toward “the good life” as frequently grounded in attachments that, while often toxic and ultimately unfulfilling, are not recognized as such by the people who engage in these negative relations.

“Modern Meets Medieval: Scholars and the Public, Then and Now"

The General Call opens with an analogy between now-times and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, invoking an approach that is both medieval and modern by looking at how the arts, the academy, and general society should, can, and do interact. In that spirit, the general question for this panel is “what is the value of studying medieval history, culture, art, and/or literature in today’s world?”

Forum is published twice a year by the Conference on College Composition and Communication. We invite you to submit 3,000-word essays related to the teaching, working conditions, professional life, activism, and perspectives of non-tenure-track faculty. Faculty and scholars from all academic positions are welcome to contribute. Of special interest are research, analyses, and strategies grounded in local contexts, given that labor conditions and the needs of contingent faculty vary greatly with geography, institutional settings, and personal circumstances. Essays should be approximately 3,000 words and address theoretical and/or disciplinary debates. They will go through the standard peer-review and revision process.
