English has always been subject to a number of competing agendas, with the result that its purpose within the school curriculum has often been open to contention. From its inception, English has been seen by governments and employers as the subject that teaches literacy and prepares students for the work force. By contrast, other advocates of English have argued its importance in cultivating character and citizenship in students. Yet others have argued the importance of the role that English plays in stimulating the growth of the imagination and enabling students to appreciate the value of literary language.

Comparative Woman: Kin

Comparative Woman’s 2019 issue is looking for academic essays, poetry, art, interviews, and book reviews on our theme of “Kin.”

 

Theme: What is “kinship”? Is it merely biological or is it something that we choose? What are the bonds that we form? How do we form them? Why do we need these bonds? Why do these bonds matter? From Moms to Drag Mothers, covens to close-knit communities and cults, and siblings to fraternities: how do we recognize and establish “kin”?

Decolonizing the Digital Archive

 

In recent years we have witnessed a proliferation of digital archival work – often (but not always) in the form of open access platforms developed to gather, preserve, and share historical documents. The very nature of open accessibility counters a rhetoric of retreat and the construction of barriers among knowledge producers and consumers – by refusing ownership over its content and seeking collaborative and communal engagement in both interpretational and curatorial work, open access digital archives are often decentralized archives that  provide modes for democratic access, exchange, and co-construction of knowledge.

NeMLA 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020

Boston, Massachusetts

 

The collection Children’s Geographies explores children's places from playgrounds, social networks, schools, streets, villages, and so much more. Peter Hunt’s “Unstable Metaphors: Symbolic Spaces and Specific Places” differentiates between the internal/personal of the “space” and the external/reality of the “place.” Drawing on these ideas, this panel seeks to continue the discussion of children’s places and spaces by asking how children exist in the real world and the fictional world, in addition to how their literature serves (or doesn’t serve) as a distinct space of its own.
