2018 Transformative Learning Conference

March 8-9, 2018
Downtown Oklahoma City, OK

March 7, 2018, Pre-Conference Institute, Edmond, OK

For more information go to http://sites.uco.edu/central/tl/conference/2018conference/about.asp

The Transformative Learning Conference emerged seven years ago as a venue for UCO faculty to share their experiences, strategies, and challenges of incorporating transformative learning into their courses.  In 2015, the Conference moved off campus and became a national discussion on applied TL.  The following year, international scholars joined the Conference.  In the last several years, around 350 scholars have joined the discussion each year, considering everything from conceptualizing and measuring TL to creating official student records of their transformative education. This year’s conference includes a pre-conference institute, March 7, 2018, for teams of two or more from institutions launching or implementing “Beyond Disciplinary Learning,” which we refer to as “STLR” (Student Transformative Learning Record) at UCO.

 

Mission

The mission of the Transformative Learning Conference is to support, promote, and foster individuals interested in discussing, implementing, or measuring transformative education. In 2006, the hosting institution, the University of Central Oklahoma, added transformative learning to its mission:

 

The University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) exists to help students learn by providing transformative education experiences to students so that they may become productive, creative, ethical and engaged citizens and leaders serving our global community.

NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication

WASHINGTON (February 29, 2016) — The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the two largest funders of humanities research in the United States, today announced a new joint fellowship opportunity to support high-quality “born digital” research in the humanities.

NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication seek to encourage scholars engaged in humanities research that requires digital formats and digital publication. Eligible projects must be conceived as digital because the nature of the research and the topics addressed demand presentation beyond traditional print publication. For example, for scholarship in fields like art history, musicology, or media studies, an interactive digital publication may allow the author to use multimedia to make arguments or illustrate critical points that would be otherwise difficult or impossible in traditional print formats.

“Over the past five decades NEH and the Mellon Foundation have supported some of the most important books in the humanities through our respective fellowship programs,” said NEH Chairman William D. Adams. “Today we are pleased to join together to help foster new forms of scholarship that take advantage of the unique possibilities afforded by digital tools, formats, and methods. Our hope is to spur innovation and experimentation that will take humanities research beyond the printed page.”

“Research in the humanities is increasingly exploring the richness of human expression in digital form and in audio and visual materials, which can be represented digitally but not so easily in print,” said Earl Lewis, Mellon Foundation president. “Scholars are also recognizing the need to reach audiences using new digital media. These digital publication fellowships are designed to help scholars in the humanities both convey the results of their research on new media and reach new audiences.”

NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication are designed for individual researchers and scholars and support continuous full-time work for a period of six to twelve months. Successful applicants receive a stipend of $4,200 per month, with a maximum stipend of $50,400 for a twelve-month period.

Application guidelines for NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication are available at neh.gov. The application deadline for the initial cycle of NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication is April 28.

The NEH-Mellon Fellowships for Digital Publication special opportunity is part of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ agency-wide initiative The Common Good: The Humanities in the Public Square, which seeks to demonstrate and enhance the role of the humanities and humanities scholarship in public life.

Keystone Digital Humanities

Please consider submitting a proposal to participate in the Keystone Digital Humanities Conference:

The Keystone Digital Humanities conference will be held in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, July 22-24, 2015.

Proposals are now invited for the following, in all areas of digital humanities:

  • Long presentations (20 minutes)
  • Short presentations (7 minutes)
  • Project showcases (10 minutes)

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, or panel discussions. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars.

In addition, we are thrilled to announce that Dr. Miriam Posner, Coordinator and Core Faculty of the Digital Humanities Program at UCLA, will be presenting the keynote lecture, “What’s Next?: The Radical, Unrealized Potential of Digital Humanities.”

The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Please send your name, email address, and a proposal of 200-300 words to keystonedh.conference@gmail.com. The proposal deadline is January 2, 2015, and community peer review will run from January 15-February 15. Proposers will be notified by March 1.

Edited Collection on Twentieth Century Black Women’s Internationalism

CFP
Editors: Tiffany M. Gill (University of Delaware) and Keisha N. Blain (Penn State)

The scholarship on the Black International has been predominately male-centric, emphasizing individuals such as W.E.B. Du Bois, George Schuyler, Paul Robeson and C.L.R. James. With few exceptions, black women have been marginalized in historical narratives of black internationalism, which center on the global visions of black people in the United States and their sustained efforts to forge transnational collaborations and solidarities with people of color from across the globe. This volume is a collection of essays that analyze the gendered contours of black internationalism and explore the creative and critical ways women articulated black internationalism during the twentieth century. Highlighting the writings, speeches, performances, activism, and overseas travel of a diverse range of female actors, this collection moves black women from the margins to the center of the historical narrative. However, this anthology does more than just expand the paucity of scholarship on black women and internationalism. Indeed, this volume is both an assessment of the field as well as an attempt to expand the contours of black internationalism theoretically, spatially, and temporally. In contrast to studies that confine black internationalism to foreign policy agendas and political insurgencies, this collection captures the shifting meanings, complexities, and varied articulations of the term.

The editors seek historical essays that employ a gender analysis, foreground black women’s voices, and reveal the underappreciated importance of women in shaping black internationalist movements and discourse(s) during the twentieth century. We are especially interested in manuscripts that reconceptualize internationalism beyond narrowly defined notions of political struggle to include consumption practices, leisure, and artistic expressions. We also seek manuscripts that expand the scholarly discourse on black internationalism to include the ideas and activities of the black working class. We encourage potential contributors to submit articles that explore topics that include but are not limited to the following:

·         Black women’s travels

·         Black women’s international activism

·         Expressions of cosmopolitanism

·         International consumer practices

·         Global Feminism(s)

·         International cultural exchanges/ practices

·         Working-class internationalism

·         Gender and Pan-Africanism

·         Global religious expressions

·         Global black beauty culture and adornment practices

·         Global performative and artistic expressions

·         Black women’s engagement with the Black Atlantic/ Black Pacific

·         Black women’s internationalist writings

·         Black women and the military

·         Black women’s engagement with foreign policy

·         Anti-colonial/ Anti-imperial discourses

Completed manuscripts, due December 30, 2014, should be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word to BWIAnthology@gmail.com<https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/BWIAnthology@gmail.com>. Essays should be no more than 35 typed, double spaced pages (12 pt. font), including endnotes. Citations should follow the latest version of the Chicago Manual of Style. All entries should be accompanied by a title page, abstract, and an abridged version of the author’s C.V. Please direct all inquiries to the editors via email at BWIAnthology@gmail.com<https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/BWIAnthology@gmail.com>.
