The Conference on College Composition and Communication’s position statement on Scholarship in Rhetoric, Writing, and Composition (2018), starts from the premise that the majority of writing scholars will find employment in English Departments, Writing Programs, Writing Centers, etc. The statement goes on to acknowledge that “rhetoric, writing, and composition scholarship addresses how texts are composed, conveyed, and received in a variety of media and for a variety of purposes and audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Scholars investigate writing processes and products in schools and universities, in academic disciplines, in the workplace, in the public arena, in the home, and in digital/virtual environments” (n. pg.).

Regis College, Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is pleased to Announce a Symposium on the Third Anniversary of the Canonization of Saint John Henry Newman and 77th Anniversary of the first Newman Symposium at Regis College. Friday, October 21, 2022.

Conference Theme: How to be a 21st-century saint. In October 2019, the Church canonized five new saints, including Cardinal Newman. An analysis of Newman’s work and persona offers important insights into the practices and patterns of behavior that define the contemporary Catholic Church, since, in the words of Peter Burke, saints “reflect the values of the culture which sees them in a heroic light.”

NeMLA 2023 Panel: Ordinary Language Philosophy and Resilience

updated: 
Tuesday, August 2, 2022 - 10:24am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

How can ordinary language philosophy’s (OLP) picture of language as a shared form of life foster resilience? For OLP, language is a peculiarly stable and resilient reservoir of meaning which we share. Speakers agree in language, in form(s) of life, and, “queer as it may sound,” Wittgenstein writes, in judgments. For Sandra Laugier, this is not intersubjective agreement but rather “as objective an agreement as possible.” When we are beset by pain, trauma, or skepticism, we can resiliently recover from this alienation of the self by recalling the shape of our lives in language.

Creative Writing Panel - "Voices in Diaspora"

NeMLA's 54th Annual Convention 

Niagara Falls, NY March 23-26, 2023

Creative Writing Panel - "Voices in Diaspora"

The term diaspora refers to the dispersion of a people from their native land; and often, there is a subjective emotional attachment whereas such feelings are determined by cultural identity. We see this illustrated in works by writers such as Elizabeth Nunez, V.S. Naipaul, Yaa Gyasi, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Jhumpa Lahiri as they examine themes such as nostalgia, alienation, displacement, and resilience in the face of adversity. This creative panel will consist of emerging writers who use their works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry to illustrate the various experiences connected to living in diaspora.

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale

Journals@MTSU, James Walker Library, Middle Tennessee State University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale (I19) seeks to publish the best scholarship on the century that was, in many ways, the time period in which the modern genres of science fiction and fantasy began, and in which the academic study of fairy tale and folklore has its roots. I19 interprets “the nineteenth century” broadly, using the dates of “The Long Nineteenth Century”—roughly, from the beginning of the French Revolution to the end of World War I—but even these dates are just notable historical markers as they approximately coincide with Romanticism and Modernism, respectively.
