Call for Papers
READER: Essays in Reader-Oriented Theory, Criticism and Pedagogy seeks submissions of essays for a special issue, "Ecocriticism and the Practice of Reading." We are interested in essays that explore and reflect upon reading-oriented theory and practical applications in composition and literary studies. What is the relationship between reading and ecological thinking? How does the practice of critical reading enrich the study of social and biological interrelationships? What pedagogical strategies for reading, interpreting, and analyzing texts (in and outside the classroom) contribute to the fundamental questions in reader-oriented theory, criticism and pedagogy. Why do we read? What do we read? How do we read?
