deadline for submissions:

The Carson McCullers Society invites proposals for presentations related to technology as imagined through the works and influence of Carson McCullers. From Miss Amelia experimenting with medical tinctures in The Ballad of the Sad Cafe to Frankie’s father working with watches in The Member of the Wedding, many of McCullers’ characters engage with technology overtly. However, in the spirit of the SSSL 2022 Conference theme, we also encourage potential panelists to think of technology in broad and creative ways.

Welcoming Students: The Syllabus as Hospitable Practice

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 10:42am
Daniel Hengel / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

I know many of us hope that we create welcoming, hospitable environments for our students. That we, in some small way, encourage a space for community building and critical citizenship. Yet, we begin our semesters with the “reading” of an often woefully inhospitable and prescriptive document written in vaguely performative “legalese”—THE SYLLABUS. The syllabus is more than a mere delineation of our classes’ rules, regulations, policies, and procedures—though, these elements of the syllabus are important, to be sure. The syllabus is our students’ first experience of us as educators. This document represents us as educators nearly as much as the texts we chose to assign, the assessment portfolios we design, and the selves we share with our students.

Laura Hartmann-Villalta (Georgetown U) // Lauren Kuryloski (SUNY University at Buffalo)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 20, 2021

This roundtable asks participants to engage with and present the new directions in feminist pedagogy that inevitably emerged in the past two years (2020-2022) during the coronavirus pandemic, but also beyond it. In the words of Kevin M. Gannon in the book Radical Hope: A Teaching Manifesto, “Teaching is a radical act of hope. It is an assertion of faith in a better future in an increasingly uncertain and fraught present. It is a commitment to that future even if we can’t clearly discern its shape. It is a continuing pedagogical practice rather than a set of static characteristics” (5). Grounded in feminism, this roundtable asks participants to present their innovations in pedagogy across a spectrum of challenges.

The Things We Will Carry: Teaching Creative Writing Post-pandemic

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2021 - 10:01am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

During the pandemic, creative writing classes, like most of academia, moved online. Traditional creative-writing pedagogies and practices were forced to reinvent themselves on Zoom. This emergency process provided opportunities for re-examination, experimentation, and growth. This panel invites practitioners of creative writing and its pedagogies to explore ways that creative writing instruction and praxis were altered by the pandemic.

Possible questions to consider:

· What changes to teaching and writing did you experience during the pandemic?

· How did the pandemic change perspectives on creative writing and creative writing instruction?
