The Affects of Pedagogy in Literary Studies
Editors: Dr HIlary Emmett (University of East Anglia) & Dr Christopher Lloyd (University of Hertfordshire)
This special issue of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) seeks to elucidate the continually undervalued and unrecognized aspects of emotional labor in education for both students and instructors. Although emphases on outcomes, skills, and cognition serve valuable purposes, they also tend to eclipse emotional processes that are taken for granted and therefore rendered invisible despite being vital aspects of the labor performed by stakeholders in all educational settings.

Writing allows our students to consider multiple perspectives and take on a variety of different roles, from personal reflection to creative writing, rhetorical analysis, and professional discourses. This focus on writing roles and identities gives students the opportunity to explore and develop different parts of themselves, from self-reflection to becoming engaged citizens and mastering the skills they will need as professionals. Foregrounding the notion of duality and multiplicity in student writing opens the door to several different critical discourses in considering audience, purpose, and students’ engagement with multiple texts and argumentative positions central to their own research and writing.
