Fish out of Water: Adaptability and Interdisciplinarity in Today’s Job Market

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Abstract

In today’s economy, the field of composition studies is rapidly changing; partly out of the realities of the academic job market and partly as a result of the desire for high-level writing skills at the undergraduate level. As Magrino and Sorrell (2104) state in their discussion of the influx of graduate assistant in the composition classroom, “due to the demand upon Composition programs to provide courses that prepare undergraduates for authentic modes of discourse that they will encounter in the workplace, the number of undergraduate courses in Composition has risen dramatically, with the field of Business Communication seeing an especially steep spike.”

Deadline Extended: Learning to Teach: Women of Color Reflect on Graduate School Pedagogical Praxis

deadline for submissions:

DEADLINE EXTENDED: SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 

Editors: Kimberly McKee, Grand Valley State University

Adrienne Winans, Utah Valley University

 

We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.

From Candidate to Colleague: Navigating the Academic Job Market (Roundtable)

updated: 
Monday, July 3, 2017 - 10:55am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

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—cover letters, CVs, recommendations, dissertation abstracts, research statements, teaching statements, diversity statements—all of which must be customized for each institution to which a candidate is applying. Yet, in spite of these challenges, there are still job openings each year and there are still success stories of people being hired for these positions. While no longer a guarantee, the only way to attain a full-time position in academia is to apply for one.

Creating Safer Spaces in English Composition Courses After the 2016 Election

updated: 
Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 11:44am
Northeast Modern Language Association - 2018 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This roundtable will look at pedagogical strategies for examining the 2016 election in Standard Freshman English Composition courses. English Composition instructors are struggling with approaching relevant concepts (ex. argument) and reading selections that do not alienate portions of the classroom with every choice. While it would be ideal, it is not necessarily feasible or responsible to be bi-partisan with every lesson plan. Submissions should present pedagogical approaches that stimulate constructive inquiry, application of course concepts, and/or address concerns of partisan discourse (in the texts, by instructors, or students).

Fostering Global Competence: Teaching Language and Culture Through Film

 

Abstract:

The session aims to reimagine the fundamental pedagogical role of foreign language and culture courses in the college curriculum in the era of globalization. Providing students with cultural experience is the objective and challenge in beginners’ language and culture courses. Films can provide the narrative of our fast-changing time, allowing reflection on global issues as well as cultural values. This session will explore whether it is possible to add relevant content to our instruction to help students reflect on the global era. 

 

70 Years of Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery"

updated: 
Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 6:20pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (Pittsburgh, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

In June of 1948, Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery” appeared in The New Yorker. Jackson’s story juxtaposed a nostalgic depiction of rural America with a jarringly brutal ending, causing outraged readers to cancel their New Yorker subscriptions and to deluge Jackson with hate mail. In the 70 years since then, “The Lottery” has become a staple of short story anthologies and American literature curricula, as well as having been adapted into a radio play, two television movies, a popular educational film, an opera, a ballet, a one-act play, and an episode of South Park.

Interdisciplinary Idealism: The Role of the Humanities in Capstone Projects

Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 6:18pm

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Capstones are an established part of undergraduate curricula. Often a requirement in degree programs, these investigative and research-based projects stress relevance and practicality. They are, thus, often promoted as necessities; they demand critical thinking, clear analytic writing, methodological application, and for those projects collaborative in their structure, teamwork and negotiation. Capstones encourage inventive and imaginative thought, reinforcing activities we associate with what we might call the ideal “humanist” – philosophically and ethically engaged, socially aware, and community minded.

Papers addressing the difficulties of students for whom academia is foreign, considered in terms of the student’s alienation, psychological unpreparedness, underdeveloped perspective, etc. How can such students be incorporated into academia, and thereby into work (and life broadly) made accessible by education? Alternatively, should we seek such incorporation, or instead reimagine and change academia, and how? Institutions have implemented a variety of assimilation and retention strategies, some with better records than others. Some programs engage students individually, whereas others emphasize building communities; some strategies focus on key first-year courses, such as introductory writing.

Celebrating H.G. Wells: Teaching His Literature in the 21st Century

For 152 years, H.G. Wells has been part of our literary cannon in science fiction, criticism and utopian projections. Fiction writers have the latitude to focus on current issues of their time, often in the guise of fictional places and/or unusual characters. H.G. Wells did exactly that in his science fiction as well as his fiction stories. Wells’ vision of an “open conspiracy of intellectuals and willful people” to build Cosmopolis occurs regularly in most of his fiction, and appears prominently in his major prophetic writings before 1914: in Anticipations, in A Modern Utopia, and elsewhere (W. Warren Wagar 40-42). The focus of this roundtable is to discuss the techniques H.G.

Presentations may reflect on theoretical contexts for intersections between these topics, or they may demonstrate actual hands-on projects that exemplify those intersections for use in teaching and research.
