The purpose of this supplemental text is to reinforce the concepts that are taught in developmental reading, developmental writing, and freshman orientation courses so that students may continue to address and improve those skills while mastering the material taught in their college-level writing courses.  This text especially works well in co-requisite writing models where students are transitioning between both developmental and college-level writing courses in the same term.

This collection attempts to look at the role of digital media as a constructive and disseminating narrative in the world, to delineate a meta-narrative of ‘digital martyrdom’. This collection aims to initiate a study not only on martyrdom in the digital space but a digitisation of martyrdom. It will seek to look especially at the role of mainstream and sponsored media propaganda to locate those interstices in the narratives which subtly subvert narratives of the mainstream mass media. In the first section of the collection, the focus will be on chapters which use as its premise usage of commercial media. The subversion is to be specifically located in the dissemination, language, and reception of the contents of the media matter.

Discourses of Instability, Inclusion, and Exclusion in the Trump Era

Papers are welcome that address the destabilizing of language and discourse practices, particularly in the inclusion and exclusion of various constituencies, in the Trump Era. These practices may range from micro-level ones, such as inclusive/exclusive pronoun strategies, to macro-level ones, such as the explosion of fake news and the semiotic challenges posed by it to the representation of politics and policies.
