Writing and Pedagogy: Call for Papers for Special Issue
A gap has crept between what writing for the workplace requires and what professional and technical writing departments that were set up with the purpose of preparing our students for workplace writing are producing. The special issue of Writing and Pedagogy intends to discuss ways that departments, instructor cohorts, and individual instructors are bridging the gap through new approaches to syllabus design, discussion facilitation, digital feedback, incorporation of digital, social media spaces, and teaching innovations.
Hybrid Pedagogy Books is pleased to announce this call for contributors for a new reader which will explore critical instructional design, a humanizing and problem-posing digital design approach grounded in the critical pedagogy of Paulo Freire. The collection will seek to feature voices from all over academia—designers and technologists, and also faculty, staff, and students—with a specific focus on voices from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, neurodivergent and other marginalized communities.
We are putting together an edited collection on cultural productions by children, theorizing children as creators and exploring children’s cultural production as a crucial, albeit often understudied, area of children’s literature, media, and cultural studies. We have most of the contributors in place, but we are seeking 2 to 3 additional chapters to round out the collection--specifically chapters on performance, music, visual art, digital media, film, television, and/or handicrafts from any time period, with special attention to BIPOC children. Please note that we are seeking work on children, not teenagers.

About this Virtual Conference
The Global Center for Religious Research (GCRR) is hosting the 2021 International eConference on Religious Trauma, which will bring together specialists, psychiatrists, and researchers from all over the world to discuss the causes of religious trauma, as well as its manifestations and treatment options for those afflicted with the sometimes adverse effects associated with religion.
In addition to the overall conference theme of “Politics of Protest,” the SCMLA African American Literature Regular Session encourages students, researchers, and scholars to submit presentations that explore the Legacy of Toni Morrison. As the author of eleven novels, five children's books, two plays, and nine non-fiction texts, Morrison stands tall as one of the most well-known, well-read, and often-taught authors of the twentieth (and 21st) century.

The general conference theme “cultures of collectivity” presents some very current and relevant possibilities for the study of late antique and medieval English languages and literatures. Any proposal that considers this theme in general will be welcome, but two foci will be of particular interest.
First, the study of book culture and literacy has been a growing field in recent years both in terms of groups of readers and groups of texts. This approach might address ideas concerning reading communities, literacy and education, book sharing, book production and combining of texts as complete or excerpted works, and use and re-use of books or texts over time.
What forms does care take? What does taking care of oneself, another, or each other look and feel like? These are questions that have arisen and persisted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, as everyday intimacies have given way to the need for social distancing, mutual aid groups have organised to try to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in their communities, and NHS hospitals and services have been overwhelmed and altered drastically. Yet these questions also have a rich and interdisciplinary history in the critical medical humanities, disability studies, the environmental humanities, literary studies, affect theory, moral philosophy, feminist theory, and beyond.

ISSUE 13: MASKS
A little more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, masks have become an ever-present symbol of our own historical moment. Yet, apart from their present topicality, masks have long played a part in literature and the arts. For this thirteenth issue of Oxford Research in English (ORE), we invite articles that examine the textual, intertextual, and extratextual ways in which masks feature, are performed, or are regarded more generally in literature.

Nature and Overnature in SF and Fantasy Discourses
Science Fiction and Fantasy are lasting fields of inquiring into today’s world. They have become privileged means to question issues of aesthetic, ethical, political, social, economic, environmental and historical nature with high impact on contemporary societies. They have promoted hot-button issues and rich critical debates in literature as well as in cinema, TV, and videogames among other media.
The Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt (KU) is a non-state university under church leadership and officially recognized by the Free State of Bavaria. It is committed to strong research and excellent teaching and combines first-class study conditions with an international focus. Eight faculties offer a wide range of subjects for around 5,000 students. The University employs 900 people of different faiths and beliefs. Grounded in the Christian view of human life, the KU aims to create an academic and educational culture of responsibility.
Over the past seventy years, neoliberal thinkers have strategically reinvented classical liberal ideals in order to privilege a sense of personal freedom over the perceived overreach of government intervention. Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become the central tenet of American life. It is now nearly impossible, for example, to imagine any mainstream voice espousing tax hikes or championing the sorts of policies enacted under Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson. Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life.
