The Rhetoric and Composition Section invites you--and all interested faculty
and students--to present recent scholarly work at the 2006 meeting of the
Michigan Academy of Science, Arts, & Letters (MASAL). Both individual paper
and panel presentations are welcome. Topics may include, but are not
limited to

 

* assessment

* technology

* basic writing

* service learning

* honors writing

* literacy

* gender and composition

* critical pedagogy

* responding to writing

* history of rhetoric

* postmodernism

* composition and the university

* composition and rhetoric as a profession

 

The conference will be held March 3-4 at Oakland University in Rochester.
The call for papers, individual membership requirements and forms, and
contact information for all discipline section leaders, can be found at the
MASAL website: http://www.alma.edu/michiganacademy. The General Call for
Papers, Abstract Instruction Form, and Abstract Submission Form can be found
at http://www.alma.edu/michiganacademy/section_leaders. The completed
Abstract Submission Form (including the 200-word abstract) should be
submitted via e-mail to wknox_at_nmu.edu no later than November 7, 2005.

 

I encourage you to consider this forum for your scholarly papers regardless
of your area of rhetoric and composition specialization. Each year faculty
and graduate students from twenty-seven member institutions (and many from
outside of the state) present 10- to 15-minute papers (as well as panels and
symposia) to discipline-specific and cross-disciplinary audiences. Papers
may also be considered for publication in the Michigan Academician.

 

Faculty and students alike find that MASAL presents a supportive yet
critical alternative venue to discipline-specific conferences for their
research presentations.

 

Membership in the Michigan Academy, although required for presentation,
enables you to receive a substantial discount on the conference fee as well
as new issues of the Michigan Academician.

 

If you have questions, please contact me. I look forward to receiving your
proposal abstracts!

 

Thank you.
