How does terror--shootings, bomb threats across campuses from Oakland, California to Oakland, Pittsburgh in just 2012 alone--force us to reinvent our classroom pedagogies, our approaches to students, and our sense of what education entails? As cyber technology (which makes bomb threats--among other violations--faceless and untraceable) and as relatively more liberal interpretations of the Second Amendment develop in the U.S., college campuses increasingly become potential sites of violence and terror. In this panel at the North Eastern Modern Language Association in Boston, MA, from March 21-March 24, 2013, teachers can share stories and revelations about the impacts of violent and potentially violent experiences on their profession in order to understand the long-term consequences and affordances of teaching in terror. Please email proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2012.
