deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 17, 2017

Writing Center directors and consultants, including student tutors, are welcome to join us on Saturday, April 22, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., as presenters or attenders of this research- and experienced-based conference.

In her poem "To Be of Use," Marge Piercy simultaneously acknowledges the commonness and affirms the importance of “work that is real.”  With this poem in mind, numerous questions about the work of our Centers can be entertained, including but not limited to these:

--Who uses our Centers, and why?  Alternatively, who doesn't use our Centers, and why not?  To what extent is data collection helpful here, yielding what observations and resulting in what changes?

Writing Across the Curriculum at MMLA

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017

At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix).  While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.

The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Alexander L. Kaufman
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

How has the concept of the outlaw been formed from legal and political traditions, both from the Anglo-American perspective and from elsewhere? Presently, how does the physical or virtual outlaw serve as a form  of resistance, dissent, and transgression in literature, media, and art? This panel solicits papers that discuss how outlaws, whether in specific texts or as a general tradition, have been appropriated and used in a specifically political context which is simultaneously intensely local and yet, through its connections to a larger international tradition, is also global in its scope.  This is a proposed Special Session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January). Please send abstracts of 250-300 words by March 15, 2017 to Alexander L.
