UPDATE: Deep Learning & Shifting Paradigms in the Humanities

MMLA--Cincinnati
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 15, 2017

Humanities have long since recognized the importance of critical reading and thinking, or the ability for students to engage in higher-order thinking skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate texts and ideas.  With the growing decline of interest in the humanities and so many students now enrolling in colleges for more vocational ends, there is an emerging shift away from in‐depth reading/critical dialogue in both college and American culture.  Thus, many students now enter college with fewer critical tools that we once took for granted and that once made humanities engaging.   How do we approach this new cultural/student paradigm?  Are there more avenues of approach than simply resisting or easing up on expectations/requirements/objectives?  P

“State Reason/University Thought” Conference, November 2nd-3rd, 2017

University of California, Irvine, HG 1030

 

Call for Papers

“State Reason/University Thought” proposes to bring together disparate considerations of the historical and contemporary role of higher education in the reason of state. In distinction from many other contemporary investigations of the university, this event seeks to interrogate the intensity and complexity of the very relation between the university and the state; to ask about the university as a social, psychic and historiographic idea of state consolidation and rationalization.

CfP Panel “Audio-Visual Pedagogies of Decline” 

at the 2017 ASA Conference “Pedagogies of Dissent” | Chicago | 9-12 November 2017

Urban decline is conventionally framed as a devastating process both for the physical fabric as well as for the social structure of urban communities. Particularly in mass media and popular culture, the common representation of declining urban spaces is dominated by images of physical decay and destitute people as well as narratives of social failure, lack of morality, and crime. These spaces and communities are thus presented as having little to nothing to offer with respect to educational achievement, creative expressivity and intellectual development.

Experiments in Relational Pedagogy: Initiating Invention in the Arts and Humanities

The Arts & Humanities in the academy are in a critical juncture in its history. As we progress further into the digital age, colleges and universities are gradually adopting new policies and new programs and college-wide initiatives to foster research and teaching that addresses both technological and societal changes as well as economic and industry demands. Simultaneously, these departments are facing new or ongoing financial restraints and students, faculty, and practitioners alike confront new, real world obstacles in their respective markets.

Friday, June 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.

Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of artistry and activism. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to artistry and activism. Possible topics include but are not limited:

In The Islamic Lineage of American Literary Culture (Oxford UP, 2016), Jeffery Einboden writes that his "excavat[ion]" of "Arabic and Persion precedents that shaped U.S. authorial lives and letters" rests on the ongoing "remappings of U.S. literary origins" which have redefinined the ways we think about authorship, nation-states, and literary texts in the wake of the transnational turn.

 The new president did not show any interest in higher education until the late stage of the campaign. His pick to lead the Education Department, Betsy DeVos also does not have any background in higher education. In addition to his impulsive and popularist policies that horrify experts, his connivance of white supremacy and anti-intellectualism especially put academe in jeopardy. We have already witnessed unpromising changes on campuses in the U.S. since his appearance for the election. Racial and religious minority groups became targets of hate-motivated incidents. White-supremacist posters and fliers, swastikas, and racial epithets, which were once believed as taboo, cause constant controversies on campus.
