'This world was unified, first of all, by a common purpose: to provide the corrective of laughter and criticism to all existing straightforward genres, languages, styles, voices, to force men to experience beneath these categories a different and contradictory reality that is otherwise not captured in them.'

As one of the most highly-regarded, well-published of the ground-breaking Bay Area Language Poets to emerge in the 1970s—and also as a theorist, translator, publisher, and in recent decades a UC Berkeley professor—Lyn Hejinian is one of the most accomplished innovative writers in contemporary America. This panel, which will be proposed for the American Literature Association meeting in San Francisco (May 24-27, 2018), will examine Hejinian’s stunning oeuvre from a variety of critical perspectives. Paper proposals should include a title, 500-word description, the potential presenter’s short professional bio (publications, awards, academic rank and affiliation). Query ASAP for more information. Polished proposal DEADLINE: Jan.
We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited volume that interrogates representations of children and youth’s agency in science fiction and fantasy. Our collection will explore child and youth agency in the context of “beyond the known.” Often, children’s agency is viewed as imaginary, given the heightened structures foisted upon them by adults/parents, peers/friends, and institutions/organizations in the real world. Insomuch as science fiction and fantasy represent liminal spaces with unbounded potential, our book may unearth that child and youth agency is accepted as more real in the unreal, more possible in the impossible.

The mission of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy (ISSN 2166-6245) is to promote open scholarly discourse around critical and creative uses of digital technology in teaching, learning, and research. Educational institutions have often embraced instrumentalist conceptions and market-driven implementations of technology that overdetermine its uses in academic environments. Such approaches underestimate the need for critical engagement with the integration of technological tools into pedagogical practice. The JITP counters these trends by recentering questions of pedagogy in our discussions of technology in higher education.
