CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Writing as Exploration and Discovery

updated: 
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 3:41am
Vincent Walsh

In this paper I describe a novel form of writing pedagogy that encourages
students to select their own topics for papers based on course readings
and class discussion. The purpose behind this approach is to facilitate a
process by which students are enabled to engage in a personal way with
their writing, in effect, to "own" their own writing process. Too often,
students write for the professor, responding to prompts or assigned
topics, assuming that what they produce has to be "what the professor
wants to hear." In effect, they become alientated from what they write,
trying to conform to a standard of evaluation that is outside themselves.
Since students will be doing a great deal of writing beyond

Representations of the Serial Killer in Film and Television

Deadline for submissions: 23 January 2009
Contact: Alzena D’Costa
Email: A.D’Costa_at_curtin.edu.au

I invite contributions for an edited collection that examines
representations of the serial killer in film and television. The serial
killer has become increasingly prevalent in popular culture. It is the aim
of this book to explore the socio-political reasons for the emergence of
this cultural figure, and to examine how representations of the serial
killer and serial killing function to address contemporary cultural
concerns and preoccupations.

A special issue on Hawthorne's final period of writing is being planned for
the fall 2009 issue of the _Nathaniel Hawthorne Review_. In quantitative
terms, the literary writings of this period make up a substantial portion
of Hawthorne's oeuvre, filling more than three volumes of the Centenary
edition. Though once much maligned, these late works have begun to attract
the serious attention from scholars they once seemed destined for. When
Septimius Felton was posthumously published in 1872, many critics were
enthusiastic â€" the reviewer of the London Times declared that "it will be
read for its poetry and fancy by many who care but little for fiction in

Anthony Guilbert

The New Scene Quarterly, on-line, is currently accepting submissions for
its Jan. 2009 issue. We are looking for submissions in the following
categories.

• NONFICTION:
We are actively looking for non-fiction that revolves around the art and
craft of writing; profiles on interesting writers; and memoirs that capture
the American literary experience. Submissions should be between 1000 and
3500 words.

• POETRY:
The best way to classify what we are looking for would be to call it 21st
Century Americana; that is, poetry that best represents the state of
America in the 21st Century. Please limit submissions to between 3 to 6
poems per entry.

America's First Three Generations

This collection of essays will focus on the "final" or “late” works of
important American authorsâ€"authors whose major works were written in the
nineteenth century or the early twentieth century and whose life spans
and literary careers were long enough for the writers to have lived
through, at least, two major literary movements. The writers who
published in the twentieth century will be limited to authors who grew
up, from birth to early adulthood, in the nineteenth century.

Call for MLA/CEA Panel Submissions

Do you have an idea for a panel to represent CEA at the 2010 MLA
Conference? If so, send your a proposal to kmadison_at_uark.edu, written in
the form of a call for papers. CEA board members will consider all
submissions and decide on two panels at our winter board meeting in
mid-January.

At that point, should your proposal be chosen, you'll call for presentation
submissions in the UPenn CFP listing and notify MLA/CEA membership, as well
as reminding potential participants that membership in both groups is
required. You'll submit your panel to MLA by its due date in the spring.

Some of our previous CEA/MLA panels include the following:
