Modernism in the Writing Classroom (MSA Brooklyn 2020)
As was widely acknowledged in discussions sparked by and at the 2019 MSA Conference, modernism is decreasingly a hiring field within English departments, and those trained in modernist studies often take positions with teaching focuses in other areas.
This roundtable will focus on scholars’ experience using modernist training/modernist texts in the writing/rhetoric/composition classroom. Please submit 200-300 word abstracts describing a specific example of your use of a modernist text and/or concept in the writing classroom. Please email abstract and a short bio to Nissa Cannon firstname.lastname@example.org by 3/5/20.
