We invite international PhD students and emerging scholars to come together to consider the myriad ways that our contemporary and established traditions of rhetorical theory and criticism inform global flows of meaning-making. For 2021, we have conscientiously chosen to hold the 2021 workshop in San Luis Potosí, Mexico at El Colegio de San Luis (also referred to as COLSAN), in order to gather academics, scholars, and activists who are thinking about language and communication as we stay critical of its limits and consequences. In alignment with this purpose, the working languages in 2021 will be English and Spanish with the aid of translation software and technology.

The year 2020 was an unprecedented year for many. We lived in a world of isolation from friends and family, deprivation of many normal activities (e.g. going out to a restaurant), and the constant state of paralyzing fear of getting sick or worse, watching our loved ones perish from the insidious virus that forced us all into a state of undesired pause. If we could only use one noun to describe the year that was 2020, it would be adversity. Where there is great adversity, there is great opportunity to rise like the mythological phoenix from the ashes to become stronger, greater, and more evolved.

Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?

CFP: Feminism(s) and American Land: Examining Early Feminist Ecologies Through Legacies of White Extractivism (SSAWW 2021- Deadline 1.24.2021)
In an increasingly global world, individuals and communities are experiencing severe disruptions to their
way of life. Among these disruptions are the emerging consequences of the climate crisis, the Covid-19
pandemic, and the resurgence of nationalist and alt-right organizations that have sought to exert control over
bodies both at and within national borders. In response to this overlap of disturbances, we are witnessing
grassroots mobilization and the emergence of new coalitions across previously discrete communities to
reconstruct life and perceptions of justice. How can we understand and study the significant disruptions and
This graduate student conference seeks to analyze the emergence of new forms of antipolitics over the last several decades. If politics has meant many things to many people, from statecraft and representation to movements for social change, antipolitics names an array of practices, discourses, and structures of feeling linked by the contention that politics is a dead end.
34TH ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE STUDENT SYMPOSIUM CALL FOR PAPERS
APRIL 9 & 1O, 2021 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
KEYNOTE: DR. CHRIS FORSTER (SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY)
The "Obscenity & Censorship" Conference:
From the moment the clock struck midnight (or so it seems) on January 1, a climate of uncertainty has loomed over the year 2020: a contentious presidential campaign, the mismanagement of a global pandemic, and widespread civil unrest over egregious acts of racial injustice have thrown the United States into a state of disarray. These incidents, the result of the outgoing administration’s efforts to disrupt and upend traditional governing institutions, have instilled unparalleled levels of uncertainty and distrust in the American public. Nowhere is this more obvious in contemporary American life than recently conducted surveys suggesting public confidence in a COVID-19 vaccine is well under the 70% threshold needed to achieve herd immunity.
In their chilling study “Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias,” Jamilia J. Blake and Rebecca Epstein conclude “that adults perceive Black girls as less innocent than white girls as young as 5-9 years old.” While Blake and Epstein centralize Black girlhood, this adultification bias similarly affects Black boys and other children of color. Children of color’s perception as ‘more adult’ than their white peers does not imbue them with any agency or power, rather, it divests them of childhood, at least within childhood’s contemporary definitions. Yet, these contemporary definitions of childhood are grounded in whiteness and white privilege.

In today’s world, the function of the English classroom has fundamentally shifted. Instead of teaching the fully paper-based curriculum of the past, instructors of English now must incorporate genres that encompass anything from videos to website creation.
In the study of literature, rhetoric, and composition, too, the field is beginning to recognize new and more multimodal forms of scholarship. Think of Kairos, the online only rhet/comp journal. Think of the work of scholars like Kristen Arola, Cynthia Selfe, and Qwo Li Driskill—work that asks us to think outside the box of the academic paper.
The Digital Humanities Crossroads Contest invites undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their Digital Humanities research at the Crossroads Humanities Student Conference. This contest encourages students to develop the academic and professional skills necessary to navigate and participate as active contributors in modern day networks of information and digital literacies.
