Jack Dudley and Dave Wehner, Mount St. Mary's University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

This proposed special session roundtable invites reflections on the tensions and limits of teaching and studying literature at religious as well as secular universities and colleges. How do different institutional commitments and governing documents as well as campus cultures and constituencies implicitly and/or explicitly limit what can be taught and published at each kind of institution? What are these limits and how have scholars navigated, challenged, and/or adapted to them? What kind of institutional discursive spaces might be created between and beyond the secular/religious divide?

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/11-14, 2021

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Film Studies Association of Canada, at Congress
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 14, 2021

  

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:

Teaching Children's Literature to Undergraduates

updated: 
Friday, December 18, 2020 - 11:36am
Stephanie J Weaver and Philip Smith, Savannah College of Art and Design
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 31, 2021

 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.
