October 17-18, 2008
North Carolina State University
Raleigh, NC

The North Carolina Symposium on Teaching Writing seeks to facilitate the
growth of a regional community of scholars in rhetoric and the teaching of
writing across North Carolina and surrounding areas. We also invite others
interested in discussing the building of community and the teaching of
writing to participate in the symposium. To accomplish this, the symposium
organizers have chosen the theme of “Composing Community” for the inaugural
meeting in 2008. We welcome proposals for panels and papers on a variety of
topics; proposals which embrace the conference's theme of “community” will
be given special consideration.

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

long-standing questions and concerns within and across disciplines. But
what is literacy? Who is studying it? And how is it being studied?

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] CCCCs 2009: Zen and the Art of Teaching Writing (Deadline: 5/7/08)

Although most of us would be loathe to let students follow Allen Ginsberg's
Zen-based exhortation, "First thought, best thought!" and write only first
drafts, many Zen-based techniques have, nevertheless, crept into writing
and public speaking classrooms with great success. This panel will explore
how panelists and participants have used non-religious meditative or yogic
techniques for pedagogical purposes. All approaches are
welcome--theoretical, pedagogical, or creative. Dissent especially encouraged!

Tutoring writing and teaching writing are two very different
Writing Centers offer a very individualized learning environment that is
difficult to emulate in a classroom setting. At the same time, the goals
that one sets for an entire class are vastly different thant the goals
a tutoring session. For those of us expereinced in both worlds, these
differences can be both troublesome and inspiring.
I am seeking papers/presentations that address any of the following
