Interaction occurs when interlocutors exchange messages through spoken and written language (Nik, 2010; Ziglari, 2008). It has been conceptually and operationally categorized from different frameworks: as conversational and instructional exchanges, as computer-mediated communication, and through social connections. Following sociocultural theory (SCT), interaction is the key to success in language learning, which is viewed as a process of social interaction (Vygotsky, 1978).

Meaningful Machines: Exploring Creative Programming for Creative Writing and Literature (Roundtable)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 16, 2020 - 11:42am
Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, UMass Boston
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the expressive potential for programming and writing is closely associated with corporate use (such as customer-facing chatbots, aggregate sentiment analysis of product reviews, and text generators), there are authors who build and use these tools to reveal something about, and generate, literature. Out of this emerges a poetics of programming that can serve to reconceptualize how we think of and consider the place of programming in a creative writing classroom. The rich history of digital poetics is being rapidly advanced by authors like Allison Parrish, Nick Montfort, Milton Laufer, Rafael Perez y Perez, Stephanie Strickland, and more.

Ways of Reading: The Politics of Method (NeMLA 2021 roundtable)

updated: 
Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 10:22pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The problem of method in literary scholarship continues, with the contemporary wave of “ways of reading” reanimating it through proposals of postcritique, surface reading, reparative reading, descriptive reading, distant reading, denotative reading, and so on. Many of these new approaches do their own critical work of locating and addressing the ideological implications of more traditional scholarly practices (as when Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick posits reparative reading against a tradition of paranoid reading, or when Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus advocate for surface reading against symptomatic reading). At the same time, many of these new approaches to methodology have also been brought to task for not being politically self-reflective enough.

Jack Dudley and Dave Wehner, Mount St. Mary's University

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Because writing instructors and writing consultants often work one-on-one with students, we are in a unique position to help students navigate college life and encourage them to use their writing to work through the complexity they see around them. In the wake of COVID-19, many students are struggling to maintain a sense of safety and to find the motivation to continue with their coursework. Writing programs and writing centers have had to pivot quickly to support students in online environments. This rapid transition has highlighted not only the amazing innovations that instructors and consultants have come up with in order to help students, but also the administrative and pedagogical problems to which programs need to respond.

Because in the United States access to a quality education
is raced and classed, educational opportunities--or rather,
the dearth of them--are linked to imprisonment. Kathryn
Hanson and Deborah Stipek write, “Dropouts are 3.5
times more likely to be arrested than high school
graduates. Nationally, 68 percent of all males in prison do
not have a high school diploma.” Even more strikingly,
Begin to Read reports that 85% of juveniles tried in
juvenile court and over 60% of incarcerated adults are
functionally illiterate.
