We interrupt our summer hiatus to share some great news: #teachingmodwomen (hopeful) contributors will be speaking at MSA and at MLA in the coming months.
These roundtables will consider women’s writing and modernist studies, treating the topic specifically from a pedagogical perspective. Speakers, talented teacher-scholars in modernist studies and 20th-century women’s writing, will cross boundaries between disciplinary concerns and teaching practice. They will conceptualize teaching modernist women’s writing from a theoretical perspective, interrogate the place of women’s writing and feminist pedagogy in modernist studies/modernist cultures, and share opportunities, challenges, strategies, and praxis.
Here’s the lineup:
- MSA 18, November 2016, Pasadena, CA
“Teaching Women’s Writing and the Modernist Studies Culture Industry”
Jennifer P. Nesbitt
- MLA 2017, January 2017, Philadelphia, PA
“Feminism, Pedagogy, and the New Modernist Studies”
** updated to add: We’ll be featured as one the Presidential Theme sessions! **
Julie Goodspeed-Chadwick, Presider
