“The Work of Community Colleges”

TYCA-West 2019

11-12 OctoberTruckee Meadows Community College in Reno, NV

 

Plenary Speaker: Dan Melzer, Associate Professor, University of California, Davis

 

In his memoir, Bootstraps, Victor Villanueva shrewdly points out that “The community college is torn between vocational training and preparing the unprepared for traditional university work. And it seems unable to resolve the conflict.” This view of community colleges hasn’t changed much since Villanueva’s book was published in the early 1990s. 

Special Issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning: The Toil of Feeling: Education as Emotional Labor

updated:

Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings.  This special issue will take as its premise the notion that we must consider emotions as work in order to obtain a fuller picture of what transpires with teachers and learners in institutional contexts and beyond.

#UsToo: Intersectional Approaches to Subversion and Resistance

March 23, 2019

Subversion and resistance have become two main preoccupations for our current Western society, where social media movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter are empowering some who have routinely been silenced in a variety of ways to “speak out” against their oppressors. Throughout the recent history of civilizations, dominant racial, sexed/gendered, linguistic, and religious power structures have discouraged and/or impeded oppressed peoples from speaking out; nevertheless, they have persisted.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Virus....: Storytelling, Health and Illness
Saturday 31st August - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

Throughout history, people have felt a need to tell each other stories about the ordinary as well as the surprising experiences of being alive, particularly in relation to health, well-being, illness, disease and death. Telling stories was – and still is – a way of recording and grappling with the origins, causes and prevention of illnesses and disease that surrounded them in everyday life.

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Disability and the Academic Job Market. The volume will be edited by Christopher McGunnigle, Seton Hall University.

 

Securing a position as a full time tenure track professor is difficult enough but even more so for people with a disability. Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for full time academic employment, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.
