Oxford Research in English, Issue 7: Craft
“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas
Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?
Humanities Unbound 2018: Work and PurposeA Works-in-Progress Graduate Conference - April 19-20th, 2018
Old Dominion University - Norfolk, VA, USA
Submission deadline: March 16, 2018
Our conference theme this year is Work and Purpose. We welcome graduate students’ papers or creative works that explore the intersections of disciplines, scholarship, and real world practices. The aim of the Humanities Unbound conference is to provoke critical conversations within, across, and for communities.
Writing Across the Curriculum
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:
CALL FOR PROPOSALS – Special Issue of Computers and Composition
Composing Algorithms: Writing (with) Rhetorical Machines
Guest Editors: Aaron Beveridge (UNC-Greensboro), Sergio C. Figueiredo (Kennesaw State University),
and Steven K. Holmes (George Mason University)
The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.
