Writing Our Wombs-CFP for NeMLA 2021 Conference Creative Session

updated: 
Saturday, June 27, 2020 - 11:48am
Chair: Rachelann Lopp Copland/Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Shortened Description of creative session:  This session calls for women and members of the LGBTQ community to submit work related to the function of their wombs and how the womb creates/destroys/changes identity. By creatively exploring our histories of meaning associated with womb, this creative session aims to contribute to NeMLA’s 2021 Philadelphia convention theme, “Tradition and Innovation: Changing Worlds Through the Humanities,” by sharing unique writing experiences that challenge the traditional meanings associated with wombs and present new ways of looking at the literal and figurative womb.  Attendance to the conference, whether virtual or in-person is required.

updated: 
Saturday, June 27, 2020 - 12:01pm
Chairs: Rachelann Lopp Copland and Forrest Johnson/NeMLA and the Women's and Gender Studies Caucus
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Full Abstract of Panel:  “Solidarity”, an abstract, almost unattainable ideal in higher education, often parades around as a tangible intention, as if it were an easily attainable concept. Wear a solidarity pin! Put a union sticker on your car! John W. Curtis, Director of Research and Public Policy for the American Association of University Professors, states that, “Change does require commitment and shared activism." This panel aims to explore tangible strategies at achieving and fostering solidarity and to offer insight into what commitment to shared activism could potentially look like, particularly in representing women’s, gender, and LGBTQ experiences.

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/12-15, 2020

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.
