Shifting the Absent Present: Pedagogical Approaches for More Inclusive Spaces

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 2:26pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session seeks to use the concept of the absent present (that which is embodied by students but unacknowledged) within the classroom as a method of disclosure. Such a method is dedicated to both the literal and figurative spaces that foster agency for students and instructors as they embody and articulate multiple critical identities. Particular focus will be placed on the ways student backgrounds and identities are erased or ignored through various means including syllabi, modeled language, instructor feedback, and assignment and assessment structures. Attention to that which is present within our students but goes unacknowledged or undervalued allows for the exploration of ways to better foster more inclusive spaces.

This roundtable will provide a forum for discussants to describe, analyze, and critique their experiences of teaching writing at specialized institutions. “Specialized institutions” will be interpreted broadly as an institution of higher education that is neither a traditional liberal arts college nor a regional, public university, but instead one that offers a narrower focus through its curriculum. For instance, federal service academies (i.e., West Point or Annapolis), technical colleges (i.e., Georgia Tech, MIT, or Cal Poly), or professional schools (i.e., Bentley University or FIT).

Approaches to Teaching Fake News: When Technology Acts Faster than Journalism

updated: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 12:36pm
Lindsay Bryde/ Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The rise of the internet has certainly led to a proliferation of false news stories and social media posts/pages. Fake news's profile has only risen as more organizations describe legitimate news sources as false when they don't like what is being said, leading to further confusion for students regarding who to believe. This roundtable looks at how to effectively educate first-year students on credible research methods, such as how to vet web sources and disseminate biased news reporting. The priority should be on recent examples to provide a practical context on the subject.

The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 21-24th, 2019 in Washington, D.C.

UPCOMING DEADLINE - Hashtag Activism: Case Studies of Digital Protests & Online Social Movements

From #BlackLivesMatter and #TakeAKnee to #WhyIStayed and #MeToo, hashtag activism campaigns have continued to proliferate in recent years. Whether connected to specific in-person protests (#MarchForOurLives; #MarchForScience; #WomensMarch), consumer boycotts (#DeleteUber; #NotBuyingIt), social commentary (#OscarsSoWhite), fundraising (#IceBucketChallenge), humanitarian efforts (#BringBackOurGirls), or social justice campaigns (#OwnVoices), Twitter has become a vital tool for activism and social commentary. Unsurprisingly, academic studies of hashtag activism campaigns have likewise been on the rise as scholars grapple with the benefits and consequences of digital activism.

Songs of Innocence and of Experiential Learning

Jesse Miller (Northeast Modern Langauge Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Experiential Learning has been described as an innovative approach to pedagogy in the fields of literature, language, and composition. Proponents argue that integrating Experiential Learning opportunities such as public projects, the production of publications, partnerships with local organizations, volunteering, and field trips into the curriculum enable students to connect what they've learned in the classroom to the wider world. But the significance of the concept of experience in the scholarship on experiential learning, although far from self-evident, remains largely untheorized. In Songs of Experience, Martin Jay points out that in modern philosophy the concept of experience has taken on a range of meanings, sometimes to conflicting ends.

Securing a position as a fulltime tenure track professor is difficult but even more so for people with a disability. Despite an increased call for applicants from marginalized populations, people with a disability are more quickly eliminated as potential candidates for fulltime positions, either through direct discrimination or from ablest conventions of the job interview process.

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

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.
