The theme of the spring 2018 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research: The Journal of the Council on Undergraduate Research (SPUR, formerly CUR Quarterly) will focus on undergraduate research and student success outcomes. Four to five articles of 2000–3500 words each are sought from a wide range of disciplines that explore how undergraduate research influences student success in a variety of educational and professional contexts. In addition, shorter vignettes (300 words) are welcomed that offer concrete, creative suggestions with regard to the measurement of engagement in undergraduate research and student success. Examples of topics of interest include the following:
A panel on children’s and young adult literature is seeking original papers relating to the subject of the oral tradition and its impact on contemporary children’s or YA lit. Oral influences on any form of media for young people may be explored, including interactions and productions created by adult storytellers and participating child listeners. The Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association 2017 conference will be held at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, Washington: October 12-14, 2017. Abstracts of 250 words or less should be sent to email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.

The University of Iowa’s Writers’ Workshop says that “Writing cannot be taught” but that “writers can be encouraged.” Whether or not literary creativity can be taught, certain skills can certainly be enhanced. Students can acquire insight into what constitute effective or realistic description, style, narrative, characterization, or use of language. They can also learn about voice, diction, plotting, setting, and figures of speech as well as how to craft dialogue that gives clues to a character’s personality, social position, values, and character.
