updated: 
Friday, May 12, 2023 - 10:59am
South Central Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2023

Call for Proposals:  

Many universities, departments, programs and/or faculty have developed their own policies about the use of AI in the classroom. Some advocate for banishing it completely, while others advocate for embracing it completely. Still others are not quite sure what it can do and whether they should embrace it or not. If banishing AI from the writing classroom, how is that monitored? If embracing AI in the writing classroom – what does that look like? Your research on this topic is valuable to all of us.
