In a January 2011 College English opinion piece, Bruce Horner, Min-Zhan Lu, Jacqueline Jones Royster, and John Trimbur discuss "the value for ordinary language users and learners of challenging and transforming language conventions to revise knowledge, ways of knowing, and social relations between specific writers and readers" (306).

This panel aims to address how we might transform conventions and revise the work being done in our courses as we work toward tolerance of linguistic diversity across the disciplines, including English Studies, Rhetoric & Composition, Linguistics, TESOL, Literacy Studies, and Translation Studies (among other fields, of course!).

Please submit your 250-word abstract by 1 May if you are interested in joining the panel.
