This study assesses the relationship between students’ satisfaction and teachers’ teaching at university level in Pakistan. The main focus of the study is on the factors, which are time management, assessment and evaluation, teachers’ behavior and attitude, and mastery over content and delivery of instruction. A survey research design was used. A questionnaire with 5-point likert type scale having 30 items was used to collect the information from the students. The sample size of the study was 400 masters’ degree students who were studying at the time of research in the institute. Mix method sampling technique was used to select the subjects of the study.
Call for Papers: Resonance
University of California, Santa Barbara
I am seeking original, previously unpublished essays for a collection tentatively titled The Science Fiction Western: Representation of Female Characters in the Late Twentieth and Twenty-first Century Media. An academic publisher has expressed interest.
Unfortunately, one of my contributors has pulled out of the project. As a result, I am seeking an additional essay. While I am looking for an essay, I am happy to accept more if they contain examinations of previously unaddressed areas of study.

Creative Writing: Prose
The Creative Writing: Prose panel will discuss emerging brief prose forms, which may include prose poems, micro or flash fiction, flash creative nonfiction, excerpts from flash sequences, and hybrid or blended short prose pieces. Panelists will offer a brief statement defining the type of brief fiction s/he is writing, then read examples from their work by way of illustration. The intention is for this panel to be informative to those attendees new to brief prose, while concurrently being interesting and enjoyable for readers familiar to brief prose. Questions and a lively discussion to follow.
Money, Power and Print: An Interdisciplinary Colloquium on the Financial Revolution
7-9 June 2018
This colloquium, the eighth in a biennial series and the first to be held in Germany, invites scholars from a variety of disciplines to enrich their mutual understanding of the intersections between public finance, politics, and print during a period some scholars call the ‘financial revolution’ from around 1688 to 1776. Papers for the colloquium should be grounded in one of the four general areas that address the themes below by considering the following:
“The philosophy of lying can be full of dark corners” (Saint Augustine, On Lying, 395 A.D.). Over time, in all spheres of the human experience, the attempts to define the concept of ‘lying’ have been numerous and have resulted in a dichotomous relationship with either ‘truth’ or ‘reality’. Both elusive and tempting, lying is a mode of communicate and influence others’ beliefs and behaviours which reveals itself in a wide range of forms: imagination, creation, invention, artifice, (dis)simulation, omission, pretence, change, disfiguration, deception, forgery, manipulation, etc.
Call for Papers: The Aesthetics and Ethics of Teaching Writing
We invite proposals for participation in a series of discussions on the topic of “The Aesthetics and Ethics of Teaching Writing.” We invite participants from all disciplines to propose brief presentations on the significant intersections between aesthetic principles, ethics, and practice as faculty committed to the value of writing pedagogy. Presentations or proposals that consider or deploy interdisciplinary approaches, creative-critical hybrid strategies, or alternative methods are welcome.
