Spoken Word Conference - 18/09/2009 (Deadline 1/07/2009)

It was the UK that gave the world 'le chav', first broadcast the social interaction of the inarticulate through reality television and were so busy testing our children in school that we forgot to teach them how to communicate effectively. Now we reap the results: an epidemic of "word poverty" and a widespread lack of communication skills. In response, the government has designated 2011-12 the National Year of Speech, Language and Communication.

Kingston University is proud to announce a new Institute of the Spoken Word, and an associated conference which for the first time brings together all those with an interest in this emerging research agenda.

Our conference will be opened by a distinguished panel of spoken word experts:

Sheryl Fontaine & Steve Westbrook, eds./ Parlor Press

The editors of Lenses on Composition Studies, a new series from Parlor Press, are currently seeking brief book-length manuscripts. We invite prospective authors to write on any topic within the field of composition—e.g., feminism, ethnography, visual rhetoric—provided the work is targeted toward an audience of advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students who are new to the discipline. Manuscripts should introduce this population of students to the selected topic by providing necessary terminology and historical explanation.

Shifting Spatialities: The Dynamic Boundaries of Place and Space

Rice Graduate Symposium
October 2-3, 2009
Rice University, Houston, TX

Call For Papers
Submission Deadline: July 1, 2009

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sharon Marcus; Professor of Literature, Columbia University

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

CFP: CCCC 2010 - The Politics of Creativity (4/24/09)

There seem to be two ideas regarding what is called "creative," "expressive," or "personal" writing in composition discourses. In one view, creative writing is seen as the work of the lone genius, who creates the Literature studied by English departments. Such a view, while having fallen out of favor in composition studies, is still considered viable in creative writing departments. Furthermore, as Susan Miller argues, it continues to haunt composition in the form of the split between composition and literature departments, and student writing and "real" writing. In the other view, creative writing is deemed overly subjective, apolitical, and generally inconsequential.

CFP: Looking for Cs 2010 panelists -- Technology, Textual Ownership, and Self-Sponsored Collaborative Writing Groups

Rik Hunter / University of Wisconsin - Madison

Looking to put together a Cs panel on technology & self-sponsored (outside of the classroom) collaborative writing groups. I'm particularly interested in the panel concentrating on matters of textual ownership.

My research examines collaboration on WoWWiki.com, so if the focus is fan studies . . . someone looking at fan fiction, for example, would be a natural fit. I can also see the (textual) writing practices of fans producing machinima, fan films, game mods working well, too.
