Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature invites contributions for a special issue on “nonfiction for children and young adults.” While many children and teenagers prefer to read nonfiction for pleasure (from books of records to military history to sex education) the focus of research and writing about young readers skews extremely heavily towards fiction. Indeed Bookbird itself has not focused on nonfiction since 2003 and no winner or shortlisted candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen writing prize has ever been an author of nonfiction.

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR

CHANGING ENGLISH: STUDIES IN CULTURE AND EDUCATION

 

After the success of the NWA hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton, the importance that NWA played in the emerging culture we knew then as hip-hop is crystal clear. Subsequently, it is also clear that this once-emerging culture is now the pulse for popular culture. At the same time, movies like Dope become critical in thinking about the rendering and (re)rendering of hip-hop in this new wave of popular culture. This viewpoint is evident by simply observing the following nexus of events:

Baltimore, Maryland, has been the home of several important African American authors, including Frederick Douglass and Frances E. W. Harper.  In addition to these major writers who influenced the emergence of African American protest literature of the tumultuous nineteenth century, there are several other significant writers of prose and poetry who have lived in the city and created African American literature. Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.

Comparative Media Panel at 2016 PAMLA

In keeping with this year’s broad PAMLA conference theme, “Archives, Libraries, Properties,” the Comparative Media panel seeks submissions for 15-20 minute presentations dealing with the interrelationships between various media forms and/as archives, libraries, and properties. The panel welcomes presentations that define the panel’s key terms – archives, libraries, properties, and media – broadly, and use them in productive tension and collaboration with one another. Presentations that seek to creatively disrupt the traditional media forms of conference presentations – thinking the conference itself as a kind of library or archive of performed academic properties – will be particularly welcome.

NeMLA​( Northeast Modern Language Association​)​​ 48th Annual Convention  ​March 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland, Session title: 'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century As Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre reminds us with her exclamation, “Reader, I married him!,” writers of fiction in the nineteenth century were very aware of their readership with texts. In the increasingly literate century, readers were savvy consumers, rapt fans, and scathing critics. They read penny papers, novels, and genre specific magazines. They read at home, in libraries, and on trains.

Running Wild: Library Archives, Faculty Engagement, and the Artist Book

updated: 
Monday, June 20, 2016 - 9:08am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association/PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2016

Academic archives and special collections are treasure troves for student engagement. These repositories contain tactile examples of institutional history that are instrumental for student research and inspirational for student creativity. Increasingly teaching faculty are collaborating with archivists and librarians in the promotion and use of these unique treasures. From these materials, students draw inspiration, often transforming the notion of what constitutes a book. Archives in turn may curate these works, documenting student research and properties for future generations. We invite presentations of work derived from or inspired by archival holdings and present strategies for encouraging similar artistic expression and curation.

 

Literature and the First Year Experience

Monday, June 20, 2016 - 8:54am
Anthony Dotterman/NeMLA Conference (March 23-26)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

As more upper-division literature courses disappear from college catalogues and fewer students choose to major in the humanities, the general education curriculum—and the first-year experience even more specifically—remain one of the few opportunities for university professors to use literary texts to teach critical thinking and analysis, both in terms of an acquired academic skill and as a venue for social and political activism. Yet, the freshman year of college is also a time when our students have not yet refined the very skills that can help them meaningfully participate in these academic and social dialogues as their liberal arts professors intend.

Disclosing Class: Pedagogy and the Working Class

Katelynn DeLuca/Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

Modern Technology in the Composition Classroom Presiding Officer: John Misak, New York Institute of Technology

This session would focus on the implementation of modern technologies (digital texts, smart devices, social media, video games, etc.) in first-year writing and strategies to incorporate them in the classroom. It will explore research, empirical and theoretical, on technology as an aid to writing instruction, and ways to navigate common pitfalls with the practice.

In an economy where the bachelor’s degree is what the high school diploma once was for obtaining a living wage, are colleges and universities equipped to handle the wide range of abilities for students who are focused more on getting through than learning to appreciate how a liberal arts education may better equip them for the job market?

CFP for NeMLA 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore, MD. http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html

Students in creative writing workshops often lack reading experience and knowledge, but demonstrate awareness and analysis of film and television. Graphic literature can be used to transition from the terminology and rhetorical understanding they possess to the writing and feedback skills the workshop demands. This roundtable seeks to present and discuss both recommended texts and strategies to engage students and encourage their creative writing. Theoretical and practical approaches to this method are welcome.

Friday, June 10, 2016

This session seeks papers about electronic editions of medieval and early modern texts in both scholarship and teaching. How can such texts be best executed and then distributed? What information and features should they provide for readers? Do they replace hands-on study of manuscripts, or do they provoke more manuscript tourism? And how can such texts be used in research and also to bring textual studies into the medieval or early modern classroom?

This session aims to further a scholarly debate on the reality of multilingualism and multiculturalism in the United States in the context of a globalized market led by the United States. The tragic events of 9/11 brought to the public discussion the United States’ inability to communicate with and comprehend other cultures and other languages. As a consequence, different initiatives emerged even at the Congressional level including legislative proposals to address the deficit in language and international expertise.
