and internationally. Nearly all college and university courses shifted to remote formats in the spring
semester of 2020 without knowing the duration of that change in modality. For many schools, that
move online persists whereas in some cases, the move back to in-person classes has brought with it

The Many Faces of the Post-Pandemic Student: Changing Pedagogies to Help Students Succeed

South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

THE MANY FACES OF THE POST-PANDEMIC STUDENT: CHANGING PEDAGOGIES TO HELP STUDENTS SUCCEED

I saw a recent Facebook post from a fellow English professor: “A student who hasn’t attended class or turned in any work for two and a half months just asked me for an incomplete. . . . and the ask was in an email, too, on a day when she didn’t attend class.” Although I did not know the professor, I can empathize with her experience. Some of our post-pandemic students are different from our “usual” first-time freshmen. For reasons that remain unclear to me, some students, like the one described in the Facebook post, do not yet understand the connection between class attendance, the successful completion of course work, and final grades.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "Career Pathways to Teaching Professional and STEM Writing" (MMLA)

updated: 
Tuesday, April 26, 2022 - 8:39am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

This panel will invite faculty that teach in Professional and STEM writing to discuss their career trajectory. The panel is intended for graduate students seeking to diversify their teaching portfolios, graduates contemplating new career paths, department administrators looking to develop new curricula and courses, and faculty interested in different approaches to writing instruction. It will ask participants to discuss opportunities and challenges they have seen both in the institutional identity of these writing courses and in their subject matter and student body. More specifically, the panel will address the relationship between English departments, literature courses, freshman composition, and these vocational writing courses.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "Approaches to Teaching Ethics in Professional and Technical Writing Classrooms" (MMLA Panel)

updated: 
Sunday, April 24, 2022 - 11:15am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

This panel will spur conversation about ethics instruction across courses like business writing, engineering communication, and health science writing. Ethics instruction is a consideration in accreditation processes for disciplines like engineering, and often such instruction is assigned to the writing classroom. This panel examines how ethics are taught and assessed in writing courses; it seeks new assignments, new pedagogies, and new rubrics that take into account instructional constraints like time and training.

 

For consideration, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words and a brief bio to najung@wisc.edu by May 10, 2022.

Special issue of Humanities journal: Translating Health through the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 20, 2022

As the COVID-19 pandemic exposed structural cracks in public health policies and health care systems around the globe, the humanities intensified arguments for their inclusion in health care, health education, policy development, and public health initiatives, citing, among other things, their existing work on cultural analysis, gender, race, and class, disease construction, illness narratives, the decoding of text, and perspective-taking. At the onset of the pandemic, humanities scholars from across the world quickly produced editorials and lecture series, arguing for, and demonstrating the value of, the humanities in responding to the global health crisis.

COVID and Accessibility: Roundtable Discussion About Policies Instituted in Response to the Pandemic Related to Access

updated: 
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 2:13pm
South Atlantic MLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

This Roundtable discussion welcomes submissions on any aspect of pre-pandemic college classroom access, post-pandemic college classroom access, or policies implemented in college classrooms post-pandemic which could limit access. Abstracts addressing the conference theme are especially welcome.  Due to the pandemic, instructors have all felt the strain change placed on our classrooms. However, these changes have brought to light important aspects of access at the university level previously regulated to individual or case-by-case discussions. This roundtable seeks to generate a wider conversation about how instructors handle access in the classroom, and what has improved or hindered access.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

GCRR Press is inviting papers for a themed article collection relating to the New Testament Gospel of John for inclusion in a proposed scholarly anthology in the field of Jewish Studies. Topics should explore the Fourth Gospel in regard to its representation, depiction, and treatment of "the Jews" in the Fourth Gospel. By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide an historical context for understanding not only the Jewish Jesus but the specific framework in which Johannine Christianity was tied intrinsically to ancient Judaism, while simultaneously distancing itself of Jewish thought and culture.

The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to the conference theme of “Change.” By June 4, 2022 please submit and abstract of 300-500 words, a brief bio, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Lisa Diehl, Chairperson, at lisa.diehl@ung.edu.

Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
