Border Crossings: Interplay Within English Studies
8th Annual Graduate English Society Conference
Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas
February 21-22, 2003
Sponsored by: The Graduate English Society, Texas Tech University
The 8th Annual Graduate English Society Conference will be held February 21-22, 2003 at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The theme of this year's conference, “Border Crossings: Interplay Within English Studies,” reminds us that our many fields of interest within English studies provide numerous opportunities for exploration through interplay and interactions.
The Texas Tech Graduate English Society welcomes proposals (250-word abstracts) in the area of Teaching and Pedagogy. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Reclaiming the past (reclaiming pedagogical techniques that went out of favor)
Inventing the future (creating new and innovative pedagogical techniques that look forward to where our students will be in their futures, and what they will need to know to support those futures)
Combining the past and the future (combining traditional--even current traditional--pedagogies with contemporary goals or technologies)
Innovative pedagogies for teaching technical writing, creative writing, literature, and other non-composition courses
Abstracts on instructional technologies and complicating old or proposing new pedagogical theories are also especially invited
Last year, the GES conference welcomed students from throughout the United States, as well as Canada, the United Kingdom, and Turkey. The conference will take place in Texas Tech’s brand new English-Philosophy classroom and office complex, a spacious, state-of-the-art educational facility.
