#IntellectualActivistMovement(s): Reconnecting University Scholarship and Community Action (CFP Deadline: 5/31)

Saturday, April 2, 2016 - 1:21pm
Language, Literacy and Culture Program (University of Maryland, Baltimore County)

It has been more than 50 years since the beginning of an intense period of socio-political action around issues of race, gender, and class in the U.S. and beyond.  Once again, in 2016, we find ourselves in a moment of burgeoning activism around the unfinished work of earlier movements. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), we offer this conference as an opportunity to look back as we look forward. Please join us at this 2nd LLC Graduate Student Conference, an all-day event on October 1st, 2016.

MMLA Special Session--Beyond Classrooms: Teaching English Studies Online (Deadline 4/30/16)

Saturday, April 2, 2016 - 12:34pm
Lauren Salisbury / Bowling Green State University

What happens when instructors of English migrate from the borders of a physical classroom to digital teaching environments? As administrators and students call for more courses to be made available online, instructors are placed in the position of translating or recreating courses typically taught in face‑to‑face environments to digital spaces. This panel calls for presentations of instructors' experiences—successes and otherwise—teaching English courses online. This call welcomes instructors of literature, first‑year composition, rhetoric, writing, English for non‑native speakers, technical writing, literary criticism, and creative writing.

[UPDATE] Critical Thinking and Writing in the Age of Globalization - Deadline Extended to 6/1/2016

Saturday, April 2, 2016 - 12:14pm
Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing
Globalization, understood as the expanding integration of economic, cultural, political, technological and social activities on a worldwide scale, presents challenges, opportunities, and crises, which can involve emerging literacies and changing modes of thought. How might critical thinking and writing pedagogies shape and/or be shaped by this growing complexity?

Double Helix welcomes the submission of work that both explores linkages of critical thinking and writing and considers how that work might contribute to, and perhaps to some extent define, the role of the university in the context of globalization.

Special Issue: Andrew Davies: the screenwriter as adaptor

Friday, April 1, 2016 - 5:13am
Journal of Adaptation in Film and Performance

In celebration of the newly created Andrew Davies archive at De Montfort University, Leicester, The Journal of Adaptation in Film and Performance is issuing a special edition on the British screenwriter.
Davies is perhaps most famous for his work on the BBC's 1995 Pride and Prejudice with his vision of Darcy becoming one of the most enduring images of late 20th century popular culture. As well as revisiting Darcy with commercially successful adaptations of Helen Fielding's modern-day adaptation of Pride and Prejudice - Bridget Jones's Diary - Davies' legacy is wide-ranging in terms of classic-novel and contemporary fiction adaptations.
