Although scholars in composition and literature are often housed in the same department and literal spaces, our interactions across these scholarly lines can vary in significant ways, ranging from open and dynamic to divisive and conflicting. This roundtable seeks to bring attention and insight to the many ways in which composition and literature faculty interact in scholarly and collegial ways. In doing so, we hope to offer attendees different strategies for approaching the dynamics within t
Depending on the institution, the department, the politics, and the history of a space, composition and literature faculty often face constant pressure to legitimize or explain the work that we do. However, few opportunities are available to do so in real and tangible ways with departments and faculty outside of our own. This panel seeks to explore the ways that writing and English courses function within and across institutions throughout the country in an effort to develop real-time strateg
Dante, Heterodoxy, and Spirituality without Religion
As the number of religiously affiliated Americans continues to decline, “spiritual but not religious has become an increasingly common self-description among millennials and members of Generation Z. Interestingly, and perhaps not coincidentally, this societal trend has dovetailed with a recent development in Dante’s American afterlife. While the question of Dante’s
In Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom (1994), bell hooks warns readers about a serious crisis in education marked by the increasing reluctance of students to learn and, ultimately, of teachers to teach. In order to fight apathy in the college classroom and the ‘banking system’ into which higher education is often trapped, hooks urges teachers and students to embrace an engaged pedagogy that allows both to build community, respect difference, and foster cr
Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences’ expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and

From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and image.

According to a recent report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly 1.5 million people are incarcerated in the United States. Results from various organizations indicate that people who are incarcerated generally have lower formal education than people who have not been incarcerated. Such findings indicate that regardless of the actual prison sentence a person receives, it becomes a type of life sentence when a lack of education denies full participation in society.
In a 2011 Economist Prospero blog entitled "After the Unthinkable," the effects of 9/11 on literature was compared to those of World War II in that it "will continue to be a marking point." As we approach the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, this panel seeks to move beyond representations of the day itself to explore the various nuances of post-9/11 literature by looking at how the long political and cultural aftermath have left their mark on literary and visual culture.

El propósito de este seminario es destacar cómo las contribuciones de la profesora Lou Charnon-Deutsch a lo largo de su amplia carrera han facilitado tanto a abrir nuevos caminos de investigación como a rescatar del olvido a voces que habían quedado en un segundo plano de la crítica literaria y de los estudios culturales. La investigación en relación a las letras hispánicas durante el largo siglo XIX no sería la misma sin las apor

The academic job market is famously difficult to navigate. Ironically, the decrease in job opportunities has prompted an increase in the number of materials required by each application. While NeMLA’s Job Clinic currently offers one-on-one mentoring for Cover Letters, CVs, and Mock Interviews—all of which are a standard part of the application for any academic job—we do not currently offer any guidance on other types of application materials. While most advice on the job mar
