Education
The following is a call for manuscripts for the Peter Lang Publishing
Education and New Literacies list.
One of the premier education publishing groups, Peter Lang Publishing is
looking for works that understand how new literacies and new ways of seeing
education are being invented -- as people from all walks of life, in
diverse sites, wrestle with new technologies, shifting values, changing
institutional forms and processes, and emerging structures characteristic
of postmodernity/New Times/the Global Informational Age. These texts aim to
explore these emerging domains and to create awareness of key trends and
features, translating them into educational consciousness and practice.

Service-learning in the Composition Classroom

Submissions are sought for a professional development book for both new and experienced

classroom. The book will be part of the Fountainhead Press X Series for Professional
Development. Essays are sought that provide practical ideas for using service-learning
pedagogy in the classroom; however, the practical application should build on a pedagogical
discussion that frames the teaching/learning activities. In other words, do not only tell how, but
also why.

Rhetorical scholars have begun uncovering the many marginalized rhetorical
traditions silenced by the homogenous nature of histories, reading and
writing new histories of the rhetorical tradition through frames from
gender to geography. Despite these substantial challenges
to/reinterpretations of the traditionally received history of rhetoric,
many voices are still silenced and many spaces are still excluded. This
silencing and excluding continues, perhaps, because of assumptions that no
texts exist from these marginalized voices or that substantial rhetorical
activity was not conducted in these marginalized spaces. These assumptions
may be based, in part, on an urban ideal of rhetorical activity, a
