Community engagement and service learning are long-standing high-impact educational practices that have demonstrated value for students, faculty, higher education institutions, community organizations, states, regions, and nations. The societal focus on social justice movements, public health and the pandemic, and environmental issues has created unprecedented opportunities for engaging undergraduates in community-based research. These developments have highlighted community needs for certain types of data and projects as well as nurtured new forms of community engagement such as social entrepreneurship.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

This proposed special session roundtable invites reflections on the tensions and limits of teaching and studying literature at religious as well as secular universities and colleges. How do different institutional commitments and governing documents as well as campus cultures and constituencies implicitly and/or explicitly limit what can be taught and published at each kind of institution? What are these limits and how have scholars navigated, challenged, and/or adapted to them? What kind of institutional discursive spaces might be created between and beyond the secular/religious divide?

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/11-14, 2021

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in Crisis Online Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021 Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation 


From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.
