As we continue to transition our daily lives “back to normal”—or rather to our understanding of “normal” from a pre-pandemic perspective—how do we negotiate the lessons learned during the pandemic? Quarantine, lockdown, self-isolation, social distancing, and the many other necessary health measures we have taken, currently take, and may continue to take, have forced a reconsideration of how we work and how we teach. What are our key pedagogical takeaways to help build and foster resiliency during these times?

Jay Dolmage provides the following insight into academic ableism, referring to the “steep steps” of the academy. He writes:
The Conference on College Composition and Communication’s position statement on Scholarship in Rhetoric, Writing, and Composition (2018), starts from the premise that the majority of writing scholars will find employment in English Departments, Writing Programs, Writing Centers, etc. The statement goes on to acknowledge that “rhetoric, writing, and composition scholarship addresses how texts are composed, conveyed, and received in a variety of media and for a variety of purposes and audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Scholars investigate writing processes and products in schools and universities, in academic disciplines, in the workplace, in the public arena, in the home, and in digital/virtual environments” (n. pg.).

94th South Atlantic Modern Language Association Convention
November 11-12, 2022
This roundtable, geared towards graduate students, independent scholars and early-career academics, seeks diverse voices to speak about the tension of interdisciplinarity and collaboration in the modern university. How do multimodal practices complicate the disciplines? What is multidisciplinarity vs. interdisciplinarity? What does it mean to be “undisciplined”? Contributions may include, but are not limited to: essays, graphic scholarship, pedagogical models, poetry and art.
How does one move from being an undergraduate to a graduate student and then to a professional? How does one prepare for a comprehensive exam? Who would make for the best members of a dissertation committee? What are some milestones to keep track of in the final year before graduation?
The humanities as an academic field has always been predicated on helping societies harness critical knowledge in improving our understanding of the human condition. Yet, scholars in the humanities continue to have a challenging time bridging their work with the larger preoccupations of the community, continuing to be weighed down by the twin discourses of triviality or the “Ivory Tower”. The rise of public humanities–the work of engaging communities-at-large in the intersections of history, traditions, humanistic culture, and material realities of civic life–is a testament to the value that humanities scholars can bring to the public when they are able to translate their high-level academic skills into transformative prospects outside the university.
The “publish or perish” mantra in academia intimidates and baffles graduate students in equal measure at different stages in their careers. Too often, there is neither enough discussion nor adequate support available at the departmental level to help graduate students navigate the opaque process of revising a conference-length paper into a publishable manuscript.
Double Helix has introduced a new section of the journal--"The Lower Frequencies"--devoted to exposing inequities in critical thinking and writing pedagogy. For more infomation on submitting to this section, please visit DH at the WAC CLearinghouse: https://wac.colostate.edu/double-helix/policies/.
