DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "Approaches to Teaching Ethics in Professional and Technical Writing Classrooms" (MMLA Panel)

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2022 - 10:02am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 14, 2022

This panel will spur conversation about ethics instruction across courses like business writing, engineering communication, and health science writing. Ethics instruction is a consideration in accreditation processes for disciplines like engineering, and often such instruction is assigned to the writing classroom. This panel examines how ethics are taught and assessed in writing courses; it seeks new assignments, new pedagogies, and new rubrics that take into account instructional constraints like time and training.

 

For consideration, please contact najung@wisc.edu by June 14, 2022.

Reimagining #MeToo in South Asia And the Diaspora (Edited Collection of Essays)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Dr. Nidhi Shrivastava
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

This edited volume seeks to examine how sexual violence and feminist interventions in South Asia and the Diaspora have been articulated in the context of but, more importantly, in opposition to the #MeToo Movement. We seek to understand how the feminist movement has radically diverged from the assimilationist discourse of the #MeToo Movement and, consequently, the Global North. The #MeToo movement has not made an impact at the grassroots level because it is hinged on the victim-survivor to speak up. In an era where the Global North has been a model for influencing change in the Global South, there has been an inconspicuous absence of recognition and impact of the #MeToo Movement.

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

THE MANY FACES OF THE POST-PANDEMIC STUDENT: CHANGING PEDAGOGIES TO HELP STUDENTS SUCCEED

I saw a recent Facebook post from a fellow English professor: “A student who hasn’t attended class or turned in any work for two and a half months just asked me for an incomplete. . . . and the ask was in an email, too, on a day when she didn’t attend class.” Although I did not know the professor, I can empathize with her experience. Some of our post-pandemic students are different from our “usual” first-time freshmen. For reasons that remain unclear to me, some students, like the one described in the Facebook post, do not yet understand the connection between class attendance, the successful completion of course work, and final grades.

Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - 1:50pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

A burgeoning professional literature attests to the rewards and challenges of teaching comics and teaching with comics (for recent examples, see Wallner, Framing Education, 2019; Parker, Teaching Artfully, 2021; the forthcoming Smyth, Teaching with Comics and Graphic Novels, 2022; and the authoritative anthology With Great Power Comes Great Pedagogy, eds.

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.
