The Emotional Lives of English Teachers: Stories from Our Classrooms (Edited Collection)

Every teacher has a voice and a story to tell. Our stories matter. Not only do they matter, but as Lad Tobin has argued, acknowledging our emotions and our stories is essential if we are going to be effective teachers of writing and literature. As human beings, we cannot disconnect from our emotions. It is through the sharing of our stories that true learning and meaning occur.

The Réseau Art Nouveau Network, as part of its 2023 activities, is organising a series of ten online conferences addressed to a scientific and professional audience, although the particularity of the theme will certainly arouse the interest and curiosity of the large community of Art Nouveau enthusiasts. After the success of 2022, this second series of conferences is dedicated to "Restoration". Architects, craftsmen and professionals are invited to present Art Nouveau places and spaces that have been restored, conserved and converted. We want to highlight good practice in the restoration of different materials and the solutions adopted that respect and enhance the spirit of the place.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many of the social support structures upon which we relied, demonstrating both the fragility and importance of being part of a larger group. Whether in moments of uncertainty and fear, or times of celebration and engagement, our communities serve an integral function in our personal and professional lives as educators, learners, and citizens. This year’s CEAO Spring Conference will explore the various ways we have responded to the need for a network of others and how we might continue the work of (re)building communities and promoting belonging in English Studies.

Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

Making Time for Research and Writing Independent of Tenure/Tenure-Track Positions

Roundtable at NeMLA 2023, May 23-26 in Niagra Falls, NY
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Deadline coming up! This roundtable seeks participants outside of tenure & tenure-track university positions, for a frank discussion about managing research and writing lives when research and writing is not strictly considered part of the job. Contingent and adjunct faculty, those whose roles are solely defined as “teaching,” and independent scholars with alt-ac day jobs all have particular constraints to their research time and access. This roundtable will explore diverse approaches to these questions: How do you juggle your commitments, find support and funding, get access to library collections, etc. in less-than-perfect situations?

This session is sponsored by the CAITY Caucus.

The End of Life Experience: 4th Global Interdisciplinary Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2022 - 9:57am
Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 16, 2022

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.

The Conference on College Composition and Communication’s position statement on Scholarship in Rhetoric, Writing, and Composition (2018), starts from the premise that the majority of writing scholars will find employment in English Departments, Writing Programs, Writing Centers, etc. The statement goes on to acknowledge that “rhetoric, writing, and composition scholarship addresses how texts are composed, conveyed, and received in a variety of media and for a variety of purposes and audiences, both inside and outside the academy. Scholars investigate writing processes and products in schools and universities, in academic disciplines, in the workplace, in the public arena, in the home, and in digital/virtual environments” (n. pg.).
