Building Professional Dispositions for Undergraduate Humanities Majors

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:03pm
MLA 2023 // San Francisco, CA (5-8 Jan. 2023)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.

Gone But Not Quite Forgotten: Recovering Lost Writers and Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2022 - 3:42pm
Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals from faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars for its 2022 Annual Conference on the theme of recovering lost writers and lost texts. We are especially interested in recovering marginalized voices, finding reasons for their disappearance, and charting a path to bring their writing and lives back into the light of current scholarship. Lost or forgotten work by canonical authors would also be welcome subjects of literary inquiry as part of this call, as would be papers that trace the evolution of a literary text from manuscript to magazine publication to book form if the changes are radical.

Talking Place: A Symposium

CALL FOR PAPERS

Is place central to your work, your creativity, or your understanding?

This symposium, organised by WomenTalkPlace and supported by the Centre for Place Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, will provide a platform for conversations between those who find inspiration from their environment, whether that be the countryside, the city, or the places in between. The relationship with place might inspire acts of creativity, philosophical debate, or be a guide for day-to-day living. Sometimes this might engender a feeling of connection, but also less comfortable and more problematic responses.
