>CFP:  "Political Issues in the Classroom" (4/1/03; MLA '03)
>
>The Graduate Student Caucus is looking for papers, to be presented at the 2003
>MLA conference in San Diego, that deal with political issues in the classroom
>and how we, as teachers, address them.  We are especially interested
>in focusing
>on the following issues as they pertain to the classroom:  labor, education
>spending/inequities, war and civil conflict, and the electoral process. Some
>questions arise when considering these issues, such as:  how do we
>address them,
>how might we include them in our lessons and lectures, and ought we give voice
>to these concerns or not?  As well as discussing the problems that exist, we
>would like this panel to be positive, informative, and maybe even mobilizing.
>Interesting strategies that showcase how to engage in productive
>dialogue about
>political issues, texts that foster such a dialogue, and student reactions to
>these issues would be especially fruitful for our panel.
>
>Abstracts should be 250 words long (detailed suggestions and a brief
>outline of
>the topics to be covered in the presentation, rather than formal
>proposals will
>be accepted) and sent to Jean Schulte at:  [log in to unmask] by April 1, 2003.
>Please keep in mind that all presenters must be current MLA members
>by April 1,
>2003.
