In our “post-truth” landscape, where “fake news” and “alternative facts” abound as the world struggles to make sense of an ever-changing global pandemic, it can be challenging for students, especially those transitioning from high school to college, to grasp the standards for composing and proving accurate and verifiable arguments. At the same time, teaching students to evaluate sources, construct fact-based arguments, as well as sharpen rhetorical and analytical skills is more important than ever before.

2021 SWCA Conference: Trauma & Transformation - Writing Centers in an Era of Change

Monday, October 12, 2020 - 2:11pm
Southeastern Writing Center Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

The SWCA Board is excited to announce that the 2021 Southeastern Writing Center Association conference will be held fully online. Join us Feb. 11-13, 2021, to discuss the transformations writing center professionals and the field undertake during times of crisis and trauma. The COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, social unrest, natural disasters, and significant changes in the structure and leadership of higher education have greatly accelerated the pace of these changes and prompted all of us in the writing center field to reconsider many aspects of our approaches to writing center work and everyday operations. Writing center professionals are called not just to react, but to proactively transform their identities, missions, and services.

Postcolonial Hauntologies (ACLA 2021)

Monday, October 12, 2020 - 2:02pm
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

What sorts of specters haunt the postcolonial realm? How can we conceive of hauntologies that enable us to effectively listen to postcolonial specters? Derrida defines hauntology as a way in which we can learn to acknowledge those things about us or around us that we have forgotten how to notice. He emphasizes that by acknowledging specters, hauntology performs a gesture of “positive conjuration” in which specters are raised to be listened to and not in order to be exorcised. Acting as a disruption to western notions of space and time, specters function as transformative mediums of postcolonial recovery by making space for the co-existence of the past within the present and acknowledging the existence of alternative histories.
