Is There A Working Class In This Literature Class?

Friday, September 30, 2016

While labor economics and political theory regularly engage the phenomenon of class conflict, literary study often glosses over it. This roundtable seeks to resuscitate the vexed question of class-bias in the academy, as reflected in the absence of or meager attention given to literary representations of working class consciousness. Papers drawing from any literary chronology and any genres are welcome.  The purpose of this roundtable is  first to explore the marginalization of working class life but then to  propose a remedy. How can literary studies acquire cross-class agency, recognizing  working class subjectivity within a traditional literary canon?  This will be the roundtable's culminating question for presenters and attendees.

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 48th annual conference. The conference will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina from March 30 to April 1, 2017. 

The 2017 theme is "Islands" and CEA invites papers and panels that address the idea of the island.  How are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape?  What respites do they provide? Are islands imagined utopias, or do they offer only barriers and isolation?  Finally, is the study of composition, film, language, literature, and writing, a kind of island amidst the tempest of the current attack on the humanities?

ROUNDTABLE: Making Early American Literature ‘New’ in the Classroom: Pedagogies, Prognoses, and Practices NEMLA 2017

updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 10:58am
NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable focuses on the perennial issue faced by so many teachers of early American literature: how to make the field interesting, stimulating, and engaging for students who might otherwise avoid it on account of its challenging language, detailed historical contexts, and often lengthy or unfamiliar content. The roundtable will discuss various strategies aimed at increasing student engagement with early American literature, and it may also address other ongoing, unresolved concerns of teachers and scholars of early American literature.

Abstracts of 150-200 words must be submitted through the NEMLA website. 

Include a brief (<50 word) bio.

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural studies or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

This year's theme is "major and minor works in world literature," but proposals on other topics are welcome as well.

The instructor of record for a college course is the sole person responsible for crafting the course syllabus, creating assignments, and evaluating students, yet collaboration is present in all aspects of our teaching. We encourage our students to work with us and with one another in order to foster a sense of community. Outside of the classroom as members of a department, we have the opportunity not only to share resources with colleagues but to invite them into our classrooms in a variety of capacities, from classroom observations to guest lectures to team teaching a course.

International Hoccleve Society
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

There is a subtle irony in the fact that Thomas Hoccleve, whose corpus of early fifteenth-century poems is saturated with the concepts of recovery and rehabilitation, has been at the center of a decades-long process of poetic and pedagogic rehabilitation in university English departments. No longer brushed aside as a mere epigone of Geoffrey Chaucer, the traditional nucleus of Medieval English literature syllabi, Hoccleve now claims a legitimate place in the late medieval canon.  But what is that place exactly, as far as college classrooms go?

1st Global Conference

Friday April 7th – Sunday April 9th 2017
Lisbon, Portugal

 

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies in the past few decades. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

Writing Beyond the Language Requirement 

Recently, scholars have recognized that “L2 writing is not only an ability to acquire, teach, and assess—as is conventionally assumed—but L2 writing is also a means, context, and basis for learning, both of language and of writing” (Manchón, 2011, x). That is, second language writing involves both learning to write and writing to learn. What does this mean for our curricula?

Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.

For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.  

Fostering Feminist Men: Reaching Resistant Students in Composition Classrooms

Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 3:36pm
Sarah Goldbort at SUNY Buffalo
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Convincing students who are resistant to feminist ideology—most often the white, straight, cisgender, male student—that feminism is relevant to their lives and the lives of those around them is an uphill battle. More often than not, composition classes are required courses, which means that the students do not want to be there in the first place. Add a feminist theme into the mix, and it can often be a recipe for disaster. This roundtable invites participants to explore the techniques and methods for teaching composition through a feminist lens, particularly focusing on how to combat negativity, while also seeking to invite those resistant students to join the conversation.
