CFP: Transformative Literacy Pedagogies (4/27/07; CCCC '08, 4/2/08-4/5/08

The "public turn" in composition has refocused our attention on claims
about the role literacy education plays in forming citizens and
communities. This panel seeks to unearth the complicated assumptions about
the teacher-student relationship and the power of particular pedagogies
embedded in literacy pedagogies that seeks to transform students and the
world. This panel seeks to intervene in contemporary discussions about the
purpose, value, and efficacy of transformative literacy pedagogies by
looking at historical moments when literacy education is positioned as
powerfully transformative.

Topics proposals may address include:
" Transformative pedagogy
" Liberatory pedagogy
" Evangelical Literacy
" Citizenship and Literacy
" Rhetorical education
" Histories of specific educators
" Public Writing Pedagogy
" Historical movements

Proposals are due by April 27.
