In 1992, the Association of American Colleges and Universities called for
the establishment of capstone courses whose principal purpose is the
generation of projects that provide majors with an opportunity to apply
what they have learned during their undergraduate course of study. Since
that time, many campuses across the country have answered the AACU call
and have begun requiring the completion of senior projects that not only
enhance student research skills but also serve to assess program
effectiveness.
This special College English Association-sponsored panel at the 2008
Modern Language Association conference in San Francisco will feature
presentations that outline practical models for supervising the
undergraduate capstone project in English studies; these models should
reflect a proven track record of faculty success in both design and
implementation. Submit proposals of 250-300 words as Microsoft Word
attachments to Tom Mack (tomm_at_usca.edu) at the University of South
Carolina-Aiken. The deadline is March 17, 2008. By the time the MLA
conference convenes in December, all panelists must be members of both
CEA and MLA.
