SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association) 2013 Conference, Atlanta, GA

Women Writing War Trauma (NeMLA 2014)

"To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric," Theodor Adorno famously pronounced in 1949, indicating, among other things, that the Holocaust presents a radical problem of representation. Indeed, the paradox at the heart of Trauma Theory is that traumatic experience both demands a story and defies communicability; it is the unspeakable that nevertheless has to be told. And in the past decade or so, scholars have begun to investigate how gender factors into this problem, a problem that extends to trauma literature in general.

CFP: Aloha at Risk: Education in Hawaii (Edited Collection)

Interstitial Press


Since the release of "A Nation At Risk" in 1983, public education has been subjected to increased scrutiny from political officials, parents, and concerned citizens. In recent years, such scrutiny has given way to calls for comprehensive education reform. Both the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and Race to the Top program, respectively inaugurated under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, focus on increasing standards for public schools throughout the United States, while more local initiatives like private school voucher systems and parent "trigger" laws attempt to increase learning opportunities for children by maximizing parental choice and administrative participation.
