Mad Scholars Anthology

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 30, 2019

Recently, there has been an avalanche of news articles about spikes in mental illness on campus. Seminal works like Margaret Price's Mad at School (2011) have begun to expose the ableism inherent in the university and prompted more open discussion surrounding the politics of disclosure.

As interest in this crucial topic grows, we are seeking out academics with psychiatric disorders and disabilities to contribute chapters to an essay collection on Mad Scholars, showcasing personal perspectives and professional experiences from across disciplines and career stages.

Time is of the essence, and academia has responded accordingly. From measuring objectives and outcomes, to the shortening of course sequences, and from the promotion of multimodal learning and multitasking, to the emphasis on testing over slower, but pleasurable, processes of meaning-making, teaching and learning in the classroom has become rushed and fraught, especially in areas such as composition and the study of literature, where teachers and students struggle to keep up. Keep up or fail: a false dilemma now normalized, forcing itself upon us. In The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy (2016), however, Maggie Berg and Barbara K.

Inclusive Roundtable at NeMLA 2020. According to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, rural areas cover 97% of the land area of the U.S. and are inhabited by 60 million people—about 19% of the U.S. population (“New Census Data Show Differences Between Urban and Rural Populations,” Dec. 2016). In an age of heightened political rhetoric and deepened ideological divide, what does it mean to identify as a feminist in a rural community? What does it mean to practice feminism in a rural community? How do those of us who teach in rural communities engage with the various definitions and practices of feminism in ways that best benefit our students?

The Global 15th Century @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 2:02pm
Lydgate Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

Recent scholarship on Chaucer has focused on his global influences and receptions. But how global was England in the century after Chaucer? This panel will explore this question, seeking answers in discussion of previously overlooked texts (such as Lydgate’s Fabula Duorum Mercatorum), consideration of source study, and pedagogical practice. This panel hopes to illuminate global roads into and outward from English literature of the fifteenth century, examining how its authors perceived and represented cultures and peoples far afield from their own, but also considering how those authors’ works were received, and how we view them today both in our scholarship and in the classroom.

“[Drag queens] ‘mother’ one another, ‘house’ one another, ‘rear’ one another, and the resignification of the family through these terms is not a vain or useless imitation, but the social and discursive building of community, a community that binds, cares, and teaches, that shelters and enables.” (137)

Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is one of the most frequently taught texts—it appears on syllabi for American literature, African American literature, American history, life writing, and gender or women’s studies courses. It is taught in high schools as well as in colleges and universities. Yet, very few resources are currently available for instructors.

The academic job market is famously difficult to navigate. Ironically, the decrease in job opportunities has prompted an increase in the number of materials required by each application. While NeMLA’s Job Clinic currently offers one-on-one mentoring for Cover Letters, CVs, and Mock Interviews—all of which are a standard part of the application for any academic job—we do not currently offer any guidance on other types of application materials. While most advice on the job market focuses on Cover Letters and CVs, these additional documents are a critical part of your application.

The English word “school” derives from the Greek word scholia, which may also be translated as “leisure.” It is perhaps because of this association between school and leisure that education in Greece and Rome was not confined to the schoolroom but was present in all aspects of Classical life, including its literature. The earliest examples of Greek literature, the poetry of Homer and Hesiod, were written not only to entertain but to teach, while the audiences of Classical theatre were directed to learn from the plays that they watched. Subsequent Greco-Roman literary works frequently emphasized the educational progress of their characters.

In his book Twenty-One Lessons for the Twenty-First Century (2018), Yuval Noah Harari argues that in a world where Biotechnology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are merging to redesign human life (physically and socially), educators should focus on teaching the "four C's," which are, "Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity" (266). As intelligent algorithms increasingly replace human labor, Harari argues that the job market will require workers to "reinvent yourself again and again."
