COVID and Accessibility: Roundtable Discussion About Policies Instituted in Response to the Pandemic Related to Access

updated: 
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 2:13pm
South Atlantic MLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

This Roundtable discussion welcomes submissions on any aspect of pre-pandemic college classroom access, post-pandemic college classroom access, or policies implemented in college classrooms post-pandemic which could limit access. Abstracts addressing the conference theme are especially welcome.  Due to the pandemic, instructors have all felt the strain change placed on our classrooms. However, these changes have brought to light important aspects of access at the university level previously regulated to individual or case-by-case discussions. This roundtable seeks to generate a wider conversation about how instructors handle access in the classroom, and what has improved or hindered access.

Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

The aftermath of societal and cultural traumas can be cause for growth, hope, change, and (r)evolution. The last two years have brought the world to such moments. Questions may arise such as: What is the role of Children’s and Young Adult Literature within and after such traumas? How do events such as war or pandemic cause reflection and change on societal, cultural, and/or individual levels? We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of Post Now.
