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

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.

This violence might be physical, emotional, metaphorical, linguistic, cultural, judicial, etc.

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.”

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.

Reports From Academic Moms on Life-hacking the Ph.D-Career-Kid Matrix  (Roundtable)Submit Abstract


A roundtable discussion on how women with kids manage and thrive in academia. Are women getting support on the road to becoming Dr. and Mom? Or are we ignoring: a chronic lack of mentorship; negative administrative policies; and even outdated, patriarchal, institutionalized expectations of who gets to succeed? Personal experiences good and bad are welcome, as are moms of all backgrounds, ages, and experiences. https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16122

As budget priorities and funding principles continue to shift in university administrations and government policies favoring the further advancement of STEM fields, one of the most salient, emerging strategies to bolster enrollment in foreign language and humanities courses has been to embrace technology in teaching both within the classroom and without. Indeed, the need to incorporate technology at the foundation of course offerings is evidenced in its frequent mention in course descriptions and even in announcements for new faculty and lecturer searches.

Can interactivity with technology influence the way students learn? Which linguistic, cultural and literary concepts can best be illustrated?

Please submit presentation proposals (in Italian or English) of no more than 250 words and a brief biographical blurb to:
