NeMLA 2022 -- Roundtable -- New Directions in Feminist Pedagogy

Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:41pm
Laura Hartmann-Villalta (Georgetown U) // Lauren Kuryloski (SUNY University at Buffalo)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 20, 2021

This roundtable asks participants to engage with and present the new directions in feminist pedagogy that inevitably emerged in the past two years (2020-2022) during the coronavirus pandemic, but also beyond it. In the words of Kevin M. Gannon in the book Radical Hope: A Teaching Manifesto, “Teaching is a radical act of hope. It is an assertion of faith in a better future in an increasingly uncertain and fraught present. It is a commitment to that future even if we can’t clearly discern its shape. It is a continuing pedagogical practice rather than a set of static characteristics” (5). Grounded in feminism, this roundtable asks participants to present their innovations in pedagogy across a spectrum of challenges.

HEL and Writing Studies Thread at SHEL-12

updated: 
Monday, August 2, 2021 - 12:07pm
Studies in the History of the English Language Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

We invite proposals for the HEL (History of the English Language) and Writing Studies thread at the 12th Studies in the History of the English Language (SHEL) conference in Seattle, WA, May 19-21, 2022.

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 one moment ago, so proposals that engage contemporary language use through a historical lens are welcome. 

Proposals are invited for individual papers as well as panels or workshops on a range of topics, including…

Pedagogy of the Unpopular: Teaching the Medieval in the 21st-Century Classroom (Roundtable) - ICMS2022

updated: 
Tuesday, July 27, 2021 - 1:16pm
Joanna Shearer (Nevada State College)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Sometimes what we love is unpopular.  In the broadest sense, medieval studies face a cultural reckoning that sees us as irrelevant and unprofitable in contemporary higher education.  Yet, these generalizations ignore the rich worlds that exist in the literature, art, history, etc., that we love so much.  And so, how do we keep the medieval relevant to the 21st-Century student in order to revive our disciplines in ways that are both academically rigorous and imaginatively compelling?  This roundtable seeks presenters who have developed innovative and engaging courses, assignments, and classroom activities to share with other scholars to implement in their own courses.

 

Some topics might include:

Transnational Indigenous Identities at the U.S.-Mexico Border

updated: 
Wednesday, July 21, 2021 - 1:54pm
53rd Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association, March 10-13, 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

The long existing impacts of the U.S.-Mexico border on Indigenous communities have been devastating on those communities physically on the border and for various Indigenous peoples representing many North American and South American nations seeking safety.  Papers considering Indigenous transnationality at the border are welcome.  A variety of topics and approaches are welcome, such as analyzing texts that address border crossing(s), threats to Indigenous sacred areas, blocked access to sacred spaces and cultural practice, the effects of the Border Patrol on the cultural relationships with community members across the border, and the rhetoric of organizations like the Lipan Apache Women Defense, MMIWG2S awareness groups, the U.N.

Dialogue-shared Experiences across Space andTime: Cross-linguistic and Cross-cultural Practices

updated: 
Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 12:22pm
European Society for Transcultural and Interdisciplinary Dialogue & University of Alicante
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 30, 2021

From the Socratic dialogues to post-modern cyberchats, it is only in and through communicative interaction that we can understand the world, people, and how things are working around us (Bohm, 2004/1996, Rockwell 2003). By means of dialogue people are able to argue for their viewpoints, to come to terms with each other, to jointly solve problems, and to resolve conflicts (Pickering and Garrod 2021). Dialogue brings together women and men, young and old, people from the east and the west, from the north and the south. Through the creative synergy of shared thoughts, ideas, and experiences, we can travel anywhere in space and time.

Transsexual Rhetorics: Self-determination in Late Capitalism

updated: 
Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 12:21pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Sex (biology) and gender (culture) were teased apart and are currently being collapsed, an interesting rhetorical history in itself. Often under-explored out of concern for the rights of transsexual/transgendered people, these shifts in logic and rhetoric potentially reveal new relationships between biology and culture, oppression and late capitalism, and vulnerability and privilege. The relationships potentially reveal cultural assumptions and expose the forces of normalization. 

Diderot: Space and Movement

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 31, 2021

 

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

Not Just Language: Linguistic Justice in the Classroom

updated: 
Friday, July 2, 2021 - 1:17pm
Northeast MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

April Baker-Bell’s landmark study Linguistic Justice: Black Language, Literacy, Identity and Pedagogy challenges English, writing and literature faculty to re-examine the ways the required use of “Standard” American English (SAE) impacts African-American learners. Baker-Bell’s critique extends and complicates our discipline’s ongoing work to ensure that composition, literature, and language classrooms are equitable spaces for all learners, not just those whose linguistic skills and goals align with SAE. It calls on us to consider how implicit or explicit expectations for language use might silence and disadvantage speakers of Black English while privileging speakers of SAE.
