Where I’ll Be, Online and Off: Fall 2016

The semester is well underway at Widener English, as you can see here!  This fall, I’m teaching ENGL 101:  Reading, Thinking, Writing, with a focus on narrative medicine and medical humanities; and ENGL 409:  Senior Seminar, with a focus on Joyce’s Ulysses.  We’re looking forward to welcoming Ted Howell, PhD candidate at Temple University, who will be giving a lecture for the department on Joyce and early ecology.

Meanwhile, the #teachingmodwomen folks are waiting to hear about our prospectus, and abstracts are coming in for an edited collection on Alison Bechdel, to be proposed to University Press of Mississippi for their Critical Approaches to Comics Artists series.  CFP here:  please share widely.

Finally, I’m working on the 2016 issue of The Space Between:  Literature and Culture 1914-1945, which promises new articles on Evelyn Waugh as book collector, Jean Rhys and photography, and more!  Please check out the journal’s site, and sign up to be alerted of new issues and other content throughout the year.  I’m also happy to announce that starting in January 2017 I’ll be serving a two-year term as Mentoring Coordinator for the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.  Check out our MLA Commons site here, and watch the space for a chance to sign up for “Chat with an Editor” at MLA in Philly.

Want to chat with me about any of this?  You can find me in the following places this fall:

  • I’ll be at a workshop on digital scholarship hosted by the New American Colleges and Universities in October, at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX.
  • I’ll be at MSA in Pasadena in November:  leading a roundtable on teaching modernist women’s writing, speaking on a roundtable on feminist scholarship, and serving as an invited participant (along with Julie Vandivere) for the seminar “Industrious Women:  The Feminist Work of Modern Culture-Making,” facilitated by Geneviève Brassard and Sarah Cornish.
  • I’ll be at MLA in Philadelphia in January:  I’ve organized a roundtable on teaching modernist women’s writing, and will be speaking on another, on modernism and comics.

Happy fall!
