For the 2nd edition of our International Conference on Teaching Literature in English for Young Learners: Fostering cultural awareness, (May 14, 2015) we are asking literature to lend us a hand in finding our bearings among the debates aroused by cultural awareness in English language education. We are looking for real cases of workshops in which concrete children books have been drawn on to integrate language and culture in innovative and successful ways. Not one interpretation of cultural awareness will be favored in advance, since our aim is that teachers and researchers from all over the world present and justify their own views on the matter, by analyzing their real classroom experiences.
Because of his early silence on the issue, when Jacques Derrida is pressed concerning "the materialist text" in Positions (1971), his response might seem enigmatic: If "matter in this general economy designates . . . radical alterity," then "what [he] write[s] can be considered 'materialist.'" Far from absent, materiality will have been silently at work in Derrida, perhaps, from the beginning and in general.

The Romance of Sidney and Spenser
This seminar explores how Sidney and Spenser engage with and develop the romance framework alongside and against their contemporaries. How do these poets revise, contest, or maintain conventions of romance in their own works? How do they represent and reconcile the genre's tendency toward contradiction, conflation, and multiplicity? How do they influence later authors and contribute to the evolution of the genre and its concerns in the English tradition?
The theme for the 36th annual SWPACA conference is "Many Faces, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture." We invite proposals for individual or panel presentations that consider the theme as it relates to rhetoric and technical communication. We're excited to hear about the ways in which popular and American culture inform the pedagogical, theoretical, and practical work of rhetoric and technical communication. Feel free to interpret the conference theme broadly.
Proposals for individual presentations should not exceed 250 words. Multi-paper panel proposals must include separate abstracts and titles for each individual proposed paper.
Submission deadline: 1 November 2014
