CFP: Writing Across the Curriculum (3/31/06; MMLA, 11/9/06-11/12/06)
Call for Papers: Writing Across the Curriculum is a permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association. The 48th Annual M/MLA Convention will be held November 9-12, at The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois.
This year's theme is "Service Learning: Writing for/about the Community." This panel invites papers from all disciplines on Writing Across the Curriculum and encourages proposals from community colleges and online learning institutions in addition to traditional four-year colleges and universities.
This panel will explore the various ways that the pedagogy of service learning and civic engagement are incorporated into English composition courses and writing courses across disciplines. Through analysis and discussion, we will examine the relationships between theories and institutional practices and explore service learning as a framework for discovery, engagement, and professional development.
Please email a 250-word abstract to Joseph A. Barda (Section Chair) by March 31, 2006.
