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.

Sunday, October 23, 2022 - 4:58pm

Monday, October 31, 2022

“Silence is constituted by the absence of words but is therefore and simultaneously the presence of their absence” (The language of Silence. Schlant, Ernestine).  

There will always come that specific moment, – and then there is silence. Many great thinkers and artists reached a point, after their most productive phase where they had become silent, and silence exists as a decision and punishment.

Wittgenstein concluded, “Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.”

deadline for submissions:

The process that is central to the development of language is the critical encounter between different groups (marked by their "physical, cognitive, neurological differences," as NeMLA's note on "resilience" suggests) in possession of different kinds of valuation in the course of which "certain words, tones, rhythms, meanings are offered, felt for, tested, confirmed, asserted, qualified, changed" (Keywords 12). This process of evolution/metamorphosis, as demonstrated by Raymond Williams in his Keywords,  is often accelerated in periods of unprecedented crisis.

Two years into our unprecedented new normal, this round table seeks a clearer understanding of what makes a classroom resilient in the face of unanticipated challenges. Internationally, we face inequity regarding healthcare access, racial disparity in law enforcement and economic standing, and culture wars waged against marginalized identity groups, among an unfortunately long list of other inequities.

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.
