Permanent Section Call for Papers: Gender Studies
Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of artistry and activism. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.
The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to artistry and activism. Possible topics include but are not limited:
Special Issue on A Comparative Analysis of Health Care in a Globalizing World: Recent Trends in Developing Nations

“The darkening of the world makes the irrationality of art rational: radically darkened art.”
The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By April 1, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.

Waters are contested entities that are currently at the centre of most scientific discussions about sustainability.
