Pupil Online Journal - Composition Across the Disciplines - Deadline: 4/1/13
Pupil is an online rhetoric and composition pedagogy journal that features essays from undergraduate and graduate students from across disciplines on the topic of teaching composition and rhetoric. General approaches to writing, and rhetorical specificities, differ across disciplines. Pupil strives to be a source and link between these differing pedagogical approaches toward composition and rhetoric by bringing them together. This journal's interdisciplinary focus is an attempt to present writing from multiple fields of study with the hope of imparting insight into how other disciplines treat college writing.
This journal is an online publication put together by English graduate students of California State University Fullerton. Pupil will be accessible on the California State University Fullerton English Department web page.
