“Nourishment: Sustaining Resistance” is an inter- and trans-disciplinary graduate student conference at the University of Cincinnati focusing on ways that texts or writing practices nourish and sustain us through times of upheaval and uncertainty. Nourishing can take many forms—from eating a good meal to reading an apt sentence—but all acts of nourishment engage our senses and encourage us to continue working, either as opposers to troubling trends or supporters of positive change.
Proposals are sought for a session at AWP 2020 where speakers and audience will consider the forms of creative nonfiction and scholarly/academic essays, and to envision the affordances made possible by their overlapping, intersection, and hybridization. It will bring together academics and editors who are exploring the possibilities and practicing the craft of literary scholarship and criticism opened up by creative nonfiction—scholarly writing within and transformed by the critical/creative hybrid space.

CALL FOR PAPERS
The 6th Annual Research and Creative Activity Symposium will be held April 16-17, 2019 on the campus of Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama.
The RCAS encourages papers, posters, and panel proposals from students, faculty, and independent scholars centered around the symposium’s theme: The Importance of Liberal Arts at HBCUs.
Writing allows our students to consider multiple perspectives and take on a variety of different roles, from personal reflection to creative writing, rhetorical analysis, and professional discourses. This focus on writing roles and identities gives students the opportunity to explore and develop different parts of themselves, from self-reflection to becoming engaged citizens and mastering the skills they will need as professionals. Foregrounding the notion of duality and multiplicity in student writing opens the door to several different critical discourses in considering audience, purpose, and students’ engagement with multiple texts and argumentative positions central to their own research and writing.
When comedy dominates popular culture so thoroughly that it’s difficult to distinguish spoofs from truths, when identities and relationships form and fumble on a foundation of comic memes, and when the powerful and the powerless wield comedy alternately as weapon or shield, it’s time for the academy to take comedy seriously. Teaching Comic Texts, edited by Bev Hogue, will examine how comic texts of many types can be deployed in classrooms, either as a topic of literary or cultural study or as a window into understanding other fields. In addition to exploring historical and theoretical contexts, essays in the volume will provide practical insights for teaching comic texts in a variety of disciplines.
EJOLLS is an annual journal which receives manuscripts throughout the year. Its volume 12 is billed to be out in the first quarter of 2019.

Recent reports reveal that the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, particularly among low-income, rural, and African American women (NPR, 2017). Changes to the Supreme Court endanger the viability of Roe v. Wade. In Iowa, a judge threatens to ban nearly all abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (NPR, 2018). In Wisconsin, the state legislature rejects the repeal of the “cocaine mom law,” which opponents argue forces undue medical care on pregnant women (Reuters, 2017). These reproductive threats are not limited to only women’s rights.
The 7th Biennial Conference on Critical Thinking and Writing (June 17–19) will bring together teacher-scholars working in Writing Across the Curriculum/Writing in the Disciplines (WAC/WID) and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

The history of hybrid forms, defined as textual and visual products that combine and integrate multiple types of symbolic elements, extends back to ancient times. Our current category of graphic narrative, as constructed in the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, and Thierry Groenstein’s Système de la Bande Dessinée, participates in that history, gaining importance and traction in society and the academy in the current century. This workshop is intended to examine the history, function, and significance of graphic narratives, specifically in making and communicating various forms of knowledge—personal, scientific, historic, cultural, and textual—in a broader context of hybridity.
