Call for Papers

In our “post-truth” landscape, where “fake news” and “alternative facts” abound as the world struggles to make sense of an ever-changing global pandemic, it can be challenging for students, especially those transitioning from high school to college, to grasp the standards for composing and proving accurate and verifiable arguments. At the same time, teaching students to evaluate sources, construct fact-based arguments, as well as sharpen rhetorical and analytical skills is more important than ever before.

Monday, October 12, 2020 - 2:11pm
Southeastern Writing Center Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

The SWCA Board is excited to announce that the 2021 Southeastern Writing Center Association conference will be held fully online. Join us Feb. 11-13, 2021, to discuss the transformations writing center professionals and the field undertake during times of crisis and trauma. The COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, social unrest, natural disasters, and significant changes in the structure and leadership of higher education have greatly accelerated the pace of these changes and prompted all of us in the writing center field to reconsider many aspects of our approaches to writing center work and everyday operations. Writing center professionals are called not just to react, but to proactively transform their identities, missions, and services.

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Gamification in the RhetComp Curriculum. The volume will be edited by Christopher McGunnigle, Seton Hall University.

Throughout the past decades, gamification has become an increasing part of training experiences. To define the term quickly, gamification involves the application of gameplay mechanics to normally non-game-based activities to increase successful activity and performance. Gamification can involve the use of popular video games, adaptations of game shows like Jeopardy, simple chalkboard games like Hangman, or a variety of rhetorical approaches that introduce gaming components into another field.

Interaction occurs when interlocutors exchange messages through spoken and written language (Nik, 2010; Ziglari, 2008). It has been conceptually and operationally categorized from different frameworks: as conversational and instructional exchanges, as computer-mediated communication, and through social connections. Following sociocultural theory (SCT), interaction is the key to success in language learning, which is viewed as a process of social interaction (Vygotsky, 1978).

Meaningful Machines: Exploring Creative Programming for Creative Writing and Literature (Roundtable)

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the expressive potential for programming and writing is closely associated with corporate use (such as customer-facing chatbots, aggregate sentiment analysis of product reviews, and text generators), there are authors who build and use these tools to reveal something about, and generate, literature. Out of this emerges a poetics of programming that can serve to reconceptualize how we think of and consider the place of programming in a creative writing classroom. The rich history of digital poetics is being rapidly advanced by authors like Allison Parrish, Nick Montfort, Milton Laufer, Rafael Perez y Perez, Stephanie Strickland, and more.

Ways of Reading: The Politics of Method (NeMLA 2021 roundtable)

updated: 
Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 10:22pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The problem of method in literary scholarship continues, with the contemporary wave of “ways of reading” reanimating it through proposals of postcritique, surface reading, reparative reading, descriptive reading, distant reading, denotative reading, and so on. Many of these new approaches do their own critical work of locating and addressing the ideological implications of more traditional scholarly practices (as when Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick posits reparative reading against a tradition of paranoid reading, or when Stephen Best and Sharon Marcus advocate for surface reading against symptomatic reading). At the same time, many of these new approaches to methodology have also been brought to task for not being politically self-reflective enough.

Jack Dudley and Dave Wehner, Mount St. Mary's University
deadline for submissions:

How have you navigated, resisted, and/or adapted to these limits?

Per Just-In-Time Session guidelines, accepted panelists must be MLA members by Sept. 22.

Because writing instructors and writing consultants often work one-on-one with students, we are in a unique position to help students navigate college life and encourage them to use their writing to work through the complexity they see around them. In the wake of COVID-19, many students are struggling to maintain a sense of safety and to find the motivation to continue with their coursework. Writing programs and writing centers have had to pivot quickly to support students in online environments. This rapid transition has highlighted not only the amazing innovations that instructors and consultants have come up with in order to help students, but also the administrative and pedagogical problems to which programs need to respond.
