CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
FOR A SPECIAL ISSUE OF TRANSFORMATIONS

TEACHING IN TRANSLATION

DEADLINE: 15 January 2006

"Translation" raises questions of authenticity, authority, legitimization,
subjectivity, and objectivity. How can we theorize translation so that it
can serve as tool to present "experience" with respect for the integrity of
the other? What is the relationship between the different subjects involved
in the process of translation? What is the role of translation in the
validation of the narratives of marginalize communities and indigenous
cultures? What are the ethics of translation?

CALL FOR PAPERS Third Annual Virginia State University Conference on
CompositionMay 11-12, 2006Theme: Teaching Writing in a High-Stakes Test
Environment Increasingly, our students write in a high-stakes test
environment. High schools are demanding that students pass writing
assessment tests in order to receive diplomas. The SAT has added a
controversial writing component. At the college level, students may
again face timed writing assessments, either as part of their placement
in first year writing courses or as part of exit requirements. How do
we, as educators, respond to this high-stakes test environment? What
impact do such tests have on our teaching as well as on our students?
