“USES OF LITERATURE” FINAL CONFERENCE
November 3-5 2021
The “Uses of Literature” research group at the University of Southern Denmark will hold an on-line conference on November 3-5 2021 to mark the conclusion of the Niels Bohr Professorship held by Rita Felski. Confirmed keynote speakers include Rita Charon (Columbia), Sean Latham (Tulsa), Heather Love (University of Pennsylvania), and Toril Moi (Duke). We welcome twenty-minute papers that speak to the group’s main research interests.
We are seeking two more participants for a roundtable on “Production as Critical Engagement” at FSAC’s 2021 conference. In this teaching-centred discussion, we want to hear about innovative pedagogical strategies that employ production (i.e., video essay, “master copy” art, collective annotation and film commentary, and other forms) to bridge film studies and film practice.
Such concrete methods of analysis are especially vital in this moment, when the shift to online teaching has dematerialized the traditional facets of film studies courses (screening, lecture/discussion).
Topics for discussion may include:

The journal published FOUR issues in a calendar year in the manner as follows:
Children's Literature has been taught in undergraduate classrooms since at least the early 1970s and has grown to become a staple of English literature programs. Children's literature classes are typically among the most popular English lit course offerings and often draw in students from other disciplines. It is easy to understand why; children's literature classes promise students the opportunity to revisit familiar works with fresh eyes. With the rise of children's book purchases in the midst of the pandemic, the popularity of the discipline is unlikely to abate.
The Journal of Migrant Education is seeking submissions for the next publication, scheduled for 2021. We are interested in contributions that do scholarly work related to migrant education in the United States, share best practices in program such as Migrant Head Start Programs, K-12 Migrant Education, High School Equivalency Program, the College Assistance Migrant Programs, and other entities that work with seasonal farmworkers and their families, and/or creative expressions of lived experience from any member in the community.
