Writing Faculties: Intersections of Creativity and Pedagogy
41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
The purpose of this session is to mark intersections between creativity and pedagogy, focusing on teacher-poets. How does working in a classroom inform the making of poetry?
Papers are invited on poetry by educators. Authors that might be considered include Philip Levine, Gerald Locklin, Tony Hoagland, and Nathan Graziano. While this will be a critical panel, presenters might also comment on their own creative compositions inspired by or about teaching.
Please send abstracts (250-350 words) to Noel Sloboda (firstname.lastname@example.org) between August 1st and September 15th, 2009.
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
