Instructional/Information Technology in CUNY: Opening Access
The escalating costs of higher education—both tuition and the collateral expenses of textbooks and course materials—have widespread effects. With the announcement of the Excelsior Scholarship and new funding to develop Open Educational Resources, CUNY is poised to ease financial barriers to college for even more students than we already serve. And yet “access” to higher education is a complex issue that extends far beyond the mere costs of attendance to adequately meeting student needs. “Access” includes ADA compliance, access to course materials and devices used for digital materials, Internet access, access to campus spaces and services, access to faculty and community, and more. CUNY’s 16th Annual IT Conference will examine the complex and evolving relationship between technology and manifold issues of access to higher education. (more…)

An Interdisciplinary Conference

Department of Comparative Literature

New York, NY
While often conceived of as a mere edge, a periphery is, etymologically, a space that encircles and contains.

“Global Spaces, Local Landscapes and Imagined Worlds”
The 49th Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association will meet April 12 to 15, 2018, and will feature approximately 400 sessions, as well as dynamic speakers and cultural events. Every year, this event affords NeMLA’s principal opportunity to carry on a tradition of lively research and pedagogical exchange in language and literature.
The theme of this year’s convention is “Global Spaces, Local Landscapes and Imagined Worlds.” We seek to examine the concept of spaces: their appropriation and occupation, the demarcation of borders, processes of inclusivity and exclusivity, as well as reproductive processes related to the creation of worlds—real, fantastic, and imagined. Pittsburgh, a city whose recent cultural explosion attracts visitors from around the United States and the world, provides the ideal backdrop for such thoughtprovoking topics.
This year’s NeMLA convention will take place at the Omni William Penn. Opened in 1916, this historic Pittsburgh landmark provides luxurious accommodations in the very heart of the city.
