Community Engagement, Critical Literacy, and Literary Studies (MLA, Vancouver, 8–11 January 2015)

updated: 
Saturday, March 1, 2014 - 8:27pm
Modern Language Association, Special Session Roundtable

The term "community engagement" has of late become something of an academic buzzword in the United States, accompanying and engendering innovative new pedagogy and research possibilities, as well as new conceptions of the university and its mission. There nevertheless persists a widespread stereotyping of community engagement as the latest incarnation of administrative jargon, as a fad that lacks academic rigor and amounts to nothing more than an institutionally enforced form of volunteerism or activism. Those in literary studies especially (unlike many faculty in composition and rhetoric) often struggle to identify the relevance of community engagement to their research and teaching.

[UPDATE] - Deadline Extended to 3/21 - Framing Memory in Late Medieval English Narrative - MLA 2015

updated: 
Friday, February 28, 2014 - 11:59pm
Jeff Stoyanoff / Duquesne University

Proposed special session - MLA 2015. How do late medieval English narratives frame cultural memory? From the great famines at the beginning of the fourteenth century to the ongoing Hundred Years War, the twilight of the Middle Ages in England contains many memorable events itself, yet poets and writers during this period also draw on a fantasized English past - Arthurian legend - and the common trope of translatio imperii. Additionally, authors cite the authority of past auctors to validate their own work. As Larry Scanlon has noted, "Authority, then, is an enabling past reproduced in the present" (Narrative, Authority, and Power 38).
