Literature in the First Year Seminar (roundtable)
First Year Seminar courses provide a way for first year students to undertake the rigors of intellectual study in an environment supportive of the transition they undergo as they enter college. As such, First Year Seminars can be sources of tension, discovery, frustration, and connection. From the instructor’s point of view, the experience of teaching a first year seminar can cause new understandings to emerge—understandings of disciplinary value, of first year students, of institutional culture, and of effective pedagogy.
The Curious Academic Publishing is pleased to announce of the release of the book "Buddhist Studies for the Curious: Why Study Buddhist Studies". Please download your FREE copy of the Kindle Edition of the book today from: http://amzn.to/1LHtYkL. Please see below for the details of the Call for Book Chapter.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Roundtable on “Metaphors of Detection”
Northeast Modern Language Association 47th Annual Convention
March 17-20, 2016
Throughout human history, food and feasting have been sources both of rivalry and solidarity. Whereas, on the one hand, the instinctive necessity to survive has pitted person against person in the search for food, the sharing of meals has also been an occasion for co-operation and interaction. While feasting may be an occasion for rejoicing and sharing, an opportunity for friends and family to gather together, it also inevitably draws distinctions between the included and excluded, and poses questions of priority and hierarchy.
