Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the College Writing Class

updated: 
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 9:14am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to education that emphasizes inclusivity in the design of curricula, instructional strategies, and assessment. Inspired by a movement in architecture to create accessible built environments, the UDL framework is intended to foster learning environments that provide welcoming spaces for learners of all types, according to the premise that structural “accommodations” intended to benefit particular students (closed captioning on videos, digital copies of print documents, alternative assessments, etc.) enhance the learning environment for all students. Increasingly, the UDL model is influencing public policy and the pedagogical climate of educational institutions from elementary schools to colleges.

Re-conceptualizing Peer Assessment

updated: 
Tuesday, July 3, 2018 - 9:09am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The practice of peer assessment encompasses various strategies ranging from peer review, peer editing, peer evaluation, peer tutoring, and peer critique, among others. With so many labels and definitions, it is no wonder the use of peer assessment techniques remains erratic and poorly defined. Continued widespread uncertainty over how students should provide feedback during the assessment phase of the writing process has resulted in the need for further analysis. Little has been done to standardize the way in which peer assessment is implemented. It remains necessary to identify the nature of the content of student feedback, the kind of assistance teachers can provide, and how students might better support one another.

The Postgraduate Seminar Essay in Literary Studies: A Guide for Writers and Readers

updated: 
Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 2:16pm
Rowman and Littlefield
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 5, 2018

The publisher Rowman & Littlefield has invited me to prepare a proposal for an edited collection tentatively titled The Postgraduate Seminar Essay in Literary Studies: A Guide for Writers and Readers. Although many books exist for undergraduate students on writing and research as well as for postgraduate students working on PhD dissertations, the seminar essay is a peculiarly understudied genre. This volume aims to serve as a resource for both students working on seminar papers and for academic staff who regularly teach postgraduates. The first half of the book will consist of essays providing guidance to postgraduate students working on seminar papers.

Panel for SAMLA: Mothering as Resistance: Creating/Subverting Networks of Care as Acts of Resistance

updated: 
Friday, June 1, 2018 - 9:15am
SAMLA 90
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

In summer of 2017, Wonder Woman challenged cultural assumptions of box office superheroes and positioned motherhood as an integral part of a feminist resistance. But motherhood as an act of resistance began long before Wonder Woman’s re-introduction to mainstream pop culture. Motherhood is often used as a rhetorical strategy in anti-violence movements, but motherhood is also used to justify violence as resistance. This panel invites submissions that consider the role of the mother as central to individual, local, national, and global activisms and resistance movements in literature, media portrayals, online communities, grassroot campaigns and more.

As the capital of the United States, Washington, DC, plays an important role in shaping both national and global history. It is vital that NeMLA bring its convention to this seat of power in order to address the ongoing challenges we face in producing a world that values diversity, honesty, scholarship, and justice.
