ACADEMIC EXCHANGE EXTRA (AEE)
A MONTHLY PEER-REVIEWED ON-LINE FORUM
For a special issue of the journal Storytelling (Heldref Publications),
Winter 2006, the guest editor is soliciting contributions that address the
problem of non-fiction narrative as a mode of storytelling. The editor
envisions essays that explore this problem in several genres, including
non-fiction by novelists, journalistic layouts (such as in National
Geographic), photographic intertextuality, multimedia representations of
popular or public figures such as Terri Schiavo or George Bush, and
theorizations of nonfiction that employ the techniques of fiction.

Convention to be held in Chicago on March 22-25, 2006. More
specifically, the session will focus on service learning in English and
composition courses at two-year colleges. Are there certain rewards and
challenges for instructors using service learning at two-year colleges?
What practices and strategies have been most successful? (How) has the
recent increased attention being given to service learning in general
carried over to two-year institutions? Practical or theoretical papers
on any aspect of these issues are welcome. Send an abstract (250 words)
