Between the recession, partisan rhetoric about class war, and the current Occupy movement, class has moved to the forefront of American political consciousness. Class is also something we can’t avoid in the academy–whether we’re talking about the relative place of men and women (Schell); WPAs, professors, and TAs (Bousquet, Scott); literature and composition (Miller); the university and the community (Mathieu); undergraduate students; or the literary canon and authors that we study. This is a kairotic moment to reexamine our assumptions about class and look more deeply at the class implications in our literature, our languages, our classrooms, and our communities.
Fifteen panels of student presentations, in English and Spanish, with Keynote Speaker Dr. Rosemary Hennessy from Rice University’s Center for Women, Gender, and Sexuality as the keynote speaker.
Free breakfast and lunch for those who pre-register before 25 March.
