Contemporaneity and the Global South

Friday, September 2, 2016 - 2:26pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

For the last two decades, critical approaches to literature of the global south have taken for granted the importance of history in shaping the present. The ongoing consequences of colonialism, nationalism, partitions, civil wars and other forms of actual and epistemic violence have been taken as key optics for understanding the crises and possibilities of the present. On the other hand, in many cases the discourse of futurity has been usurped by the proponents of neoliberalism who imagine that capitalism will release the formerly colonized countries from history’s handcuffs and pave the way toward a bold new future.

Fostering Feminist Men: Reaching Resistant Students in Composition Classrooms

updated: 
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 3:36pm
Sarah Goldbort at SUNY Buffalo
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Convincing students who are resistant to feminist ideology—most often the white, straight, cisgender, male student—that feminism is relevant to their lives and the lives of those around them is an uphill battle. More often than not, composition classes are required courses, which means that the students do not want to be there in the first place. Add a feminist theme into the mix, and it can often be a recipe for disaster. This roundtable invites participants to explore the techniques and methods for teaching composition through a feminist lens, particularly focusing on how to combat negativity, while also seeking to invite those resistant students to join the conversation.
