Despite our constant unraveling, humans are bound to each other and are continually finding ways of becoming entangled with one another. Our platonic, romantic, and paternal bonds of love cause us to belong to each other. This fierce intimacy has the potential to stretch physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries.

 

How do humans currently become entangled with each other? How do we love each other? Hate each other? Cooperate with one another? What connections are condemned and stigmatized? Should they be? How do our shared experiences enhance our individual perceptions?

This roundtable will provide a forum for participants to discuss and analyze their experiences and offer suggestions for teaching the multi-major professional writing course, more commonly referred to as simply “business writing” or “professional writing.” We especially welcome presentations that speak to and offer strategies targeting one of our three major concerns with the course: its decontextualized state, its reliance on non-neutral codes of professionalism, and the lack of pedagogical support often given to its instructors.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED to October 18, 2019 

Artistic products are cultural artifacts; language and symbols exist as methods of representing new feelings, ideas, and experiences. In turbulent and profound moments of history and personal experience, art and literature attempt to capture and retell the experiences of restlessness, feelings of movement, and reactions to disorder. The 2020 New Voices Graduate Conference invites submissions that consider concepts of (un)rest.

Reminder: NeMLA 2020 Writing, Rhetoric, and Technology: Writing Studies Pedagogy in the Digital Age

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 4:24pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel examines the teaching of college writing, rhetoric, and composition in the digital age by exploring rhetorical situations, genres, and technologies in both the professional and academic realms, with particular attention to digital rhetoric, pedagogy, information and media literacy, and literary and cultural studies. This panel engages deeply with NeMLA’s conference theme of “shared spaces and places” online and in the classroom, and focuses on the cutting-edge of “shaping languages and cultures” in the digital sphere.

Global climate change is perhaps the most serious threat human beings have ever faced. Human-caused global warming is already upon us with increased temperatures, extreme weather events, massive storms, unprecedented drought, flooding, wildfires, melting ice, sea rise, warming and acidification of oceans, and growing animal extinctions. Scientists now predict that, within a generation, planetary catastrophes may significantly disrupt global food production, create unlivable temperatures in many regions, submerge cities, and create hundreds of millions of refugees. Unchecked, climate change has apocalyptic consequences not only for human beings, but for all life on earth.

NeMLA recognizes the significant contribution of visual presentations to the body of academic study of literature and other linguistic constructions. Posters can relay complex information in ways that text alone cannot. These sessions are an opportunity for NeMLA scholars to share visual representations of their research. The format of the session allows presenters to display their work in a casual setting and to engage in informal conversations with convention participants regarding their work at a designated place and time.

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include: 

Seeking contributions from college writing instructors for The College Writer At-Work Book, 2nd edition, a supplemental workbook that assists students in freshman writing courses, especially in co-requisite models

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:01pm
Paige Huskey, Associate Professor of English / Kendall Hunt Publishing Company
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 29, 2019

The purpose of this supplemental text is to reinforce the concepts that are taught in developmental reading, developmental writing, and freshman orientation courses so that students may continue to address and improve those skills while mastering the material taught in their college-level writing courses.  This text especially works well used in conjunction with a college writing textbook in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term. 

Media Attention to the Adjunct Plight: Helpful or Harmful?

In the last few years, attention to the adjunct plight, to include poverty-level pay, limited job security, as well as lack of respect for us personally and acknowledgement of our professional credentials and accomplishments, seems to have intensified, reflected in a variety of media outlets, from more liberal ones like The Atlantic and Washington Post to even the ultraconservative Fox News.

Truth-Telling: Experimental Forms in Essay and Poetry, a Reading & Discussion

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 11:42am

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

What does it mean to tell the truth? Are we obligated to inform, or reveal with specificity? What approaches do creative writers apply in disclosing the personal? Does experimentation hide or reveal the truth? Our creative essays and poetry engage with inherent obstacles of truth in life writing. Following a reading of our essays and poetry, we will invite conversation on the ways in which experimental literary forms test the boundaries of truth-telling and subjectivity, and complicate the defining and teaching of genres.

“Enslaved Black folk couldn’t lift shackled feet,

so instead they shuffled

& invented the cumbia—

& you can’t tell me there aren’t many ways to survive,

to remember the dead,

to make a freedom where there isn’t one.”

Monday, September 23, 2019

Since the nineteenth century to the present, fragmentary writing has been widely deployed in literature and philosophy (i.e. Ernst Bloch, Schlegel, Mallarmé, Adorno, Maurice Blanchot, Kafka, Beckett etc.) as a strategy to disrupt the idea of totality by and through writing. Fragmentary writing as an incomplete totality, bears absent voices and traces and alludes to a whole.

A kairotic moment, 2019 marks a surge in US state legislatures establishing laws tied to reproductive rights, health, and justice, some of which are intended to challenge and overturn Roe v. Wade. While Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Utah passed bills that limit abortions, Illinois, Maine, Nevada, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont have established laws protecting abortion access. At the same time, no policy changes to the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits Medicaid coverage of abortion, are in sight. But abortion is just one issue of reproductive rights, health, and justice—concerns that affect people in local, national, and global contexts.
