CALL FOR PAPERS (First-Come, First-Served Extended Deadline Period)
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference
Thursday, November 14, 2019 to Sunday, November 17, 2019, Wyndham San Diego Bayside Hotel, San Diego, California
Theme: The Art of Writing/The Writing of Art
The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.
Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.
North East Modern Language Association's 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020
Faculty learning communities offer an environment in which normally isolated spaces, places, and disciplinary-specific language and cultures can interact to produce new insights into members’ professional identity and pedagogy while simultaneously enriching a college’s broader community of ideas. The structure of such groups also has the benefit of being far more flexible than formal or ad hoc committees, which are often constrained by end-oriented goals, college bylaws, and other such protocols.

Materiality is the mediating force through which our senses engage information. As print and digital technologies alike have become increasingly more sophisticated, accessible, and affordable, some creators, scholars, and consumers have embraced innovative digital technologies, while others remain devoted to more familiar materials and formats. Differences in income, education, geographical location, and other factors heavily influence the technologies—digital and physical—through which we produce and consume content, conduct business, and communicate with others.
Time is of the essence, and academia has responded accordingly. From measuring objectives and outcomes, to the shortening of course sequences, and from the promotion of multimodal learning and multitasking, to the emphasis on testing over slower, but pleasurable, processes of meaning-making, teaching and learning in the classroom has become rushed and fraught, especially in areas such as composition and the study of literature, where teachers and students struggle to keep up. Keep up or fail: a false dilemma now normalized, forcing itself upon us. In The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy (2016), however, Maggie Berg and Barbara K.
How does pedagogical strategizing work in teaching Global South Asian literatures in majority serving institutions located in areas where the student body is mostly white, or lacking in South Asian immigrant groups? How does South Asian literature find a place in general education core courses? What are some current practices and challenges that scholars of color specializing in and including South Asia as a text, experience in their classrooms? We are interested in sharing experiences on teaching, planning courses, writing curriculum development projects including South Asia centric courses both for the major and the general education classes that embrace the inclusion of literatures from the global South, especially from South Asia.
