Taking its cue from Lawrence Venuti's work on the scandal of translation, the ways that translations of texts originally produced in other languages carry the power to affront the norms and assumptions of both source and target languages and cultures, this roundtable for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association's conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, FL, 13–15 November 2020, welcomes submissions on either particularly scandalous adaptations or the scandal of adaptation generally.

Higher education faculty are doing their best to improve the quality of education offered to students. However, the results have not been up to the expectations of all the stakeholders. Successful education has long lasting effects on the learners that predispose them to deal with everyday and future challenges. Therefore, considerable efforts need to be invested in discovering and elaborating new effective teaching practices, assessment, learning strategies, learner empowerment, etc. Within this framework, this conference high-lights the presentation of new advances, trends and research results in the field of quality higher education.
The traditional apprenticeship model is a well-documented paradigm for engaging undergraduates in research. In recent years, course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have become more common. Many factors influence a mentor’s ability to use these models, and sometimes alternative paths are needed to engage in undergraduate research. The winter 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore these nontraditional approaches to undergraduate research.
Topics of interest include the following:

What is our role as scholars, researchers, teachers and community members during a time of worldwide transition?

Disability has functioned historically to justify inequality for disabled people themselves, but it has also done so for women and [other] minority groups. That is, not only has it been considered justifiable to treat disabled people unequally, but the concept of disability has been used to justify discrimination against other groups by attributing disability to them.
- Douglas C. Baynton, Disability and the Justification of Inequality in American History

Out of the Classroom and into the Wild: Ecopedagogies for the Anthropocene
We boast of our system of education, but why stop at schoolmasters and schoolhouses? We are all schoolmasters, and our schoolhouse is the universe. To attend chiefly to the desk or schoolhouse while we neglect the scenery in which it is placed is absurd. If we do not look out we shall find our schoolhouse standing in a cow-yard at last. ---Henry David Thoreau, “Huckleberries”
