This panel, sponsored by the College English Association, explores how the concept of alienation can be applied to a field in which it has not received very much attention: composition pedagogy. Generally meaning an undesirable separation between self and world (i.e., other human beings, nature, and social roles, norms, and institutions), alienation has been analyzed in various contexts by philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, and critical theorists. While it came to be viewed as problematic and outmoded with the rise of postmodernism, the concept is far from obsolete today. On the contrary, alienation remains both a widely experienced psychosocial issue and a vital theoretical and diagnostic tool.

The introductions to our past journals have been written by notable faculty members, including Michael Dirda, a Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic, and Michael Olmert, a three-time Primetime Emmy winner.
As was widely acknowledged in discussions sparked by and at the 2019 MSA Conference, modernism is decreasingly a hiring field within English departments, and those trained in modernist studies often take positions with teaching focuses in other areas.
This roundtable will focus on scholars’ experience using modernist training/modernist texts in the writing/rhetoric/composition classroom. Please submit 200-300 word abstracts describing a specific example of your use of a modernist text and/or concept in the writing classroom. Please email abstract and a short bio to Nissa Cannon firstname.lastname@example.org by 3/5/20.
