The purpose of this supplemental text is to reinforce the concepts that are taught in developmental reading, developmental writing, and freshman orientation courses so that students may continue to address and improve those skills while mastering the material taught in their college-level writing courses.  This text especially works well used in conjunction with a college writing textbook in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term.

In the last few years, attention to the adjunct plight, to include poverty-level pay, limited job security, as well as lack of respect for us personally and acknowledgement of our professional credentials and accomplishments, seems to have intensified, reflected in a variety of media outlets, from more liberal ones like The Atlantic and Washington Post to even the ultraconservative Fox News.

How can academics attempt to faithfully translate, interpret, analyze, and/or discuss the creative narratives of cultures and communities to which they have no personal connection? This roundtable will insist that this question, although immensely complex, is not rhetorical—and that we, as students and scholars of literature, language, and culture, are positioned to conduct particularly constructive explorations into possible answers.

Many of us structure syllabi according to a familiar read-discuss-write a paper rhythm, a sequence that allows students to further explore ideas independently and in depth. But as natural and inevitable as this process seems, what really comes of the hours we all invest in the writing and grading of literary analysis papers?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Colleges and universities have witnessed great shifts in student populations over the last few decades, including new populations of veteran  and adult students. Now, as the traditional aged student continues to decline in numbers, one additional population of potential students appears to continue to grow: prison inmate students. College prison programs include both credit programs and enrichment programs. Through programs such as Shakespeare Behind Bars, the recidivism rates have declined as the men and women in these programs discover empathy, a love of language, and the value of community. This panel will explore college prison programs.

Roundtable: Meeting the Evolving Needs of the Community College Professor in NeMLA

This roundtable invites faculty at community colleges, junior colleges, vocational colleges and other two-year institutions to discuss the challenges and rewards that come with attending and presenting at academic conferences. With a focus on NeMLA itself, we would like to hear how NeMLA is doing in this regard: what successes or frustrations have you experienced here? What will you do differently or hope to do similarly in future? The goal of this roundtable will be to begin a conversation about these issues, and perhaps leave with concrete goals for the CAITY Caucus to pursue in supporting faculty from two year institutions within NeMLA.

A recent trend has seen many writers create literary narratives that confront twentieth-century events while inscribing into that past the authors’ contemporary selves (e.g.: Binet 2009; Jablonka 2012; Foenkinos 2014). These biographical meta-narratives seem dictated by the impossibility to construct one’s own subjectivity without facing the very notions of civilization and humanity that our violent pasts have reconfigured.

Humans have always moved or danced as a way of ritualizing their relationship to the Divine. These dances expressed an understanding of God(s), the relationship of human beings to the divine world, and were an expression of thanksgiving for the life cycle events that move history forward: birth, death, and all that is between. Some circus arts, find their earliest documentation as religious practices. This book begins the investigation of what it means for these practices to meet their holy origins once more, not as a form of expression but as a mode of study.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

How do we teach Dickens now? What do Dickens’s works have to do with the #MeToo movement; with social media; with the Anthropocene, extinction rebellion, and climate change; with racism and living, as Christina Sharpe has put it, “in the wake” of slavery; with technological rupture, the gig economy, and radical job transformation; and with other questions of modern life? What do we do with Dickens’s long prose and today’s allegedly shorter attention spans and alternative narrative forms?

This panel invites scholars to address what Dickens’s fiction offers the present and why Dickens matters now. The Dickens Society requests paper proposals (250-500 words) for the panel “Teaching Dickens Now” (ID 18079).
