Re-Negotiating Identity and Transnationalism
Call for Articles, Reviews and Interviews
TEXT MATTERS: A JOURNAL OF LITERATURE, THEORY AND CULTURE
Published by the University of Łodź in Poland
NEW DEADLINE (SEPT. 15, 2011) Call for Papers for The Sharon Pollock: First Woman of Canadian Theatre Conference to be held at the University of Calgary from March 28 to 31, 2012.
The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy, a new, peer-reviewed publication edited by students and faculty from the CUNY Graduate Center, seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. We are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways.
Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies might be employed in the classroom. Research-based articles should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis.
In addition to scholarly articles, we will consider:
This panel examines textbooks in first-year composition and their changes due to new media challenges. We are looking for papers that explore how the textbook has changed, new versions of textbooks that are online, the challenges involved in teaching writing online/with new media, suggestions for new media-minded textbooks, or other areas directly related to this call. Essentially, we are looking at how the idea of the textbook must change and adapt if we are to responsibly write and teach writing in the digital age.
Papers should be about 6-10 pages; please email Sarah at the above address if you are interested.
Deadline: ASAP (but no later than May 1).
Activity theory is increasingly being used as a framework both to study various communication acts and to create new and exciting pedagogical practices.
As such, I'm hoping to put together a CCCC panel that uses activity theory in ways such as the following:
- To analyze/critique/question a specific discursive artifact in our field or more broadly in higher education,
- To forward a pedagogical method,
- To analyze a specific communicative event,
- To study movement between activity systems, including writing transfer.
I'm open to other suggestions for this panel, as it should allow for a fairly broad discussion.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: July 1st, 2011
