Scotland

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] CCCC 2009: From Writing Center to Writing Classroom

updated: 
Sunday, April 20, 2008 - 4:51pm
Evelyn Reid

Tutoring writing and teaching writing are two very different undertakings.
Writing Centers offer a very individualized learning environment that is
difficult to emulate in a classroom setting. At the same time, the goals
that one sets for an entire class are vastly different thant the goals for
a tutoring session. For those of us expereinced in both worlds, these
differences can be both troublesome and inspiring.
I am seeking papers/presentations that address any of the following topics:
How does tutoring experience affect your teaching style?

How does teaching experience affect your tutoring style?

What role does the Writing Center play in your classes?

TransCanada Institute

Canadian Literature and TransCanada Institute (U of Guelph) invite submissions for a special
issue on the various shifts Canadian literature has undergone as an institution. How does the
destabilization of the “national” myth as a result of transnational forces and globalization affect
Canadian literature as a viable category of critical investigation and teaching? What are the
politics that inform and shape the production of knowledge in the area of Canadian literature?
How can we articulate the problematics of Canadian literature as a discipline or area study? Such
questions as "is Canada post-colonial?" intersect with formulations such as "multicultural

Dr. Robert Ward & Dr. Colin Winborn

We are looking for contributions to the collection Lost and Found: The
Recovery of American Literature. A survey of the nation’s literary
history during the twentieth century would identify a vast body of work
that has been read by one generation of readers but lost from the view of
the next. This could be due to the economics of the publishing industry,
shifting political and social values, or changes in literary taste and
criticism. This volume will consider American literature in the twentieth
century that has been thought lost but later recovered and appreciated
for its literary significance, or its reflection on a particular
historical time or cultural movement. However, the volume will also

Trialoguesâ€"new online journal devoted to the study of contemporary
literature

Trialogues as an online journal is setting out to deal with contemporary
literature by entering into dialogic relations with writers, critics and
fans to produce a constant roving barrage of arguments about the meaning
of Literature.

Trialogues is concerned with thought experiment; with the testing of
written modes to redraw our interior maps of the literary and theoretical
landscapes.

Trialogues is fundamentally about peer debate and the critique of
judgement drawn from the fast and furious argument of the fanbase.
