The Graduate English Organization of Truman State University is proud to
announce the call for papers for their annual conference April 10-11,

Our speaker this year will be author extraordinaire Mary Ruefle, who has
published several books of poetry and prose as well as a comic book.
Inspired by her unique work A Little White Shadow, our conference is
entitled “Obliterature: The Art of Creative Destruction.” We are
looking for presentations, creative and scholarly, that deal with the
breaking down of culture and art, the imaginative implosions within the
written word, or simply those ideas that are not just out of the box but
crush it.

Expanding Literacy Studies is an International, Interdisciplinary
Conference for Graduate Students to be held April 3-5, 2009, at The Ohio
State University.

Literacy Studies is a recent construct. At the same time, it addresses
long-standing questions and concerns within and across disciplines. But
what is literacy? Who is studying it? And how is it being studied?

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.

Call for Papers
Service-learning in the Composition Classroom

Submissions are sought for a professional development book for both new and experienced
composition teachers that will focus on the role of service-learning in the composition
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
