HEL and Writing Studies Presentation Thread at SHEL-13 Conference

updated: 
Saturday, March 23, 2024 - 7:27pm
Studies in the History of the English Language Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2024

We invite proposals for the second HEL (History of the English Language) and Writing Studies thread at the 13th Studies in the History of the English Language (SHEL) conference at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey, October 17-20, 2024.

 

The HEL and Writing Studies thread will explore ways in which the study of language change and variation can contribute to rhetoric and writing studies, and vice versa. When proposing, keep in mind that the history of the English language extends from the origins of the language to very recent history, so proposals that engage contemporary language use through a historical lens are welcome.

Gloria Naylor’s 1996: A Teaching Companion (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Thursday, March 14, 2024 - 7:56pm
Tarshia Griffin, Isaiah Frost Rivera
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 29, 2024

Gloria Naylor’s fictionalized memoir 1996 (2005) remains the least studied but most controversial selection in her decades-long literary output. Published by Third World Press at the tailend of her illustrious career, 1996 stands in stark contrast to Naylor’s iconic tetralogy — which includes Women of Brewster Place (1982), Linden Hills (1985), Mama Day (1988), and Bailey’s Cafe (1992), as well as the sibling text Men of Brewster Place (1998) — by centering the author herself in its bold critiques of state power and the ways marginalized communities fight to uphold it.

What is the Young Rhetoricians' Conference?

The Young Rhetoricians’ Conference (YRC) began in 1985 at San Jose State University. From its inception, YRC has been a place for those who teach rhetoric at the university level to share research about teaching rhetoric and techniques for teaching rhetoric. “Young” refers not to the age of the rhetoricians but refers instead to rhetors with a willingness, in the mind, to dance whenever possible. You can learn more about YRC at our website.

I am looking for a few educators and researchers who are interested in using generative AI in the classroom to promote cultural studies and learning language. I plan to propose a panel for this year’s ELO conference, which will be held online from July 18 to 21.

The student-centered ethic is well established in humanities classrooms, so the question for this panel is how to use AI to further this goal. In particular, this year’s organizers are desirous of submissions that consider community and creativity. Papers that explore strategies to harness the potential for positive futures and/or elicit awareness of dystopian potentials are welcome.
