Studies in the Humanities

The December, 2009 issue of Studies in the Humanities is seeking essay submissions for a special issue on the subject of "Theoretical Perspectives on Women in Higher Education." The editors will cast their net widely: we will seek thesis-driven, innovative essays about women and their experience as students, administrators, and faculty in Normal Schools, colleges, seminaries, and universities that examine pedagogical, scholarly, and research practices in light of (but not to exclusive to) cultural, feminist, gender, historical, rhetorical, and socio-political epistemologies.

Call for Papers: Rhetoric/Composition/Play: How Electronic Games Mediate Composition Theory and Practice (and Vice Versa)

Computer and video games continue to inundate the entertainment market, and culture along with it. Traditional text games, adventure games, first-person shooters, the immersive worlds of role-playing games (massively multiplayer or otherwise), simulations, "casual" games such as solitaire, and even web advertisements posing as games have formed a landscape rich with opportunities to examine composition-rhetoric's history, theory, pedagogy, and practice, where scholars can use, examine, and imagine the impact of games and gaming on writing.
