Washington, DC, March 21-24, 2019
Abstract Deadline: Sept. 30, 2018
Panel Title: How Should We Grade Multimodal Assignments? Developing Criteria & New Approaches
Feral Feminisms, an independent, inter-media, peer-reviewed, and open-access online journal, invites submissions from artists, activists, and scholars for a special issue titled, “State Killing: Queer and Women of Color Manifestas against U.S. Violence and Oppression,” guest edited by Annie Hill, Niq D. Johnson, and Ersula Ore.
This panel, part of the NeMLA 2019 conference in Washington, DC from March 21-24, 2019, aims to bring together adjuncts, graduate students, and tenured professors to discuss how we can all work together to fight for a more democratic and just work environment. Topics might include ways to build solidarity to improve working conditions, more democratic ways to share power and responsibility between adjuncts, graduate students, and tenured professors, and ways to increase diversity in the university. Other topics that address solidarity between all workers in the university are welcome.
The Creative Fiction area of the National Pop Culture Association / American Culture Association Conference welcomes fiction in any style, although the maximum reading time is 18 minutes. We also welcome full panels of readers.
Please send both an abstract AND attach the full piece to be presented at the submission site. DUE by Oct. 1, 2018

In our binge-mode culture, TV has become students’ preferred access point to critical thinking. Most college students do not see themselves in canonical texts or feel confident with analysis. Yet, students are typically employing skills of argumentation an analysis in dissecting shows on television, Netflix, and/or Hulu. Even though intellectual discussions, like the ethics around NBC’s The Good Place, occur on podcasts and cultural criticisms online, instructors often cast these opportunities aside as less than tertiary.
This roundtable will provide a forum for discussants to describe, analyze, and critique their experiences of teaching writing at specialized institutions. “Specialized institutions” will be interpreted broadly as an institution of higher education that is neither a traditional liberal arts college nor a regional, public university, but instead one that offers a narrower focus through its curriculum. For instance, federal service academies (i.e., West Point or Annapolis), technical colleges (i.e., Georgia Tech, MIT, or Cal Poly), or professional schools (i.e., Bentley University or FIT).
