Critical Thinking and Writing in the Age of Pandemics

Double Helix invites Reports from the Field and scholarly Notes related to the effects of coronavirus—campus closures, social distancing, courses moved online, etc.—on pedagogy related to critical thinking and writing.

*Reports from the Field (2,500 to 5,000 words) focus more exclusively on specific pedagogical practices and are less invested in theory than Research Articles. They address institutional programs and initiatives, course and assignment design, assessment, instructor response, and readings of student work. Their modest length provides readers with an opportunity to learn quickly about a new practice and its implementation.

Learning With Animals: Anthropomorphization and the Animal Mind

updated: 
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 10:46am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While it is considered dubious to anthropomorphize animals to learn about them, learning with animals asks scholars to consider both animal and human ways of being and knowing, as well as where those epistemologies might overlap or diverge. Attempting to learn with animals requires consideration of the value of anthropomorphization. Drawing on the burgeoning field of animal studies, we invite literary scholars to consider how literature imagines animals and their ways of being and knowing—whether alternate or familiar.

Rethinking Innovation: Practices of Care and Maintenance in DH Scholarship and Pedagogy

updated: 
Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 10:33am
NEMLA 2021 (Philadelphia, PA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.

Supporting Multilingual Writers: Hands-on Strategies and Conversations

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 12:35pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA))
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

With internationalization of higher education and recent student demographics changes, multilingual students are no longer “contained” in ESL programs (Matsuda, 2006; Poe & Zhang-Wu, forthcoming). Many of multilingual students matriculate directly into mainstream writing classes, highlighting the importance of linguistically responsive instruction at the tertiary level (Gallagher & Haan, 2018). This awareness is especially crucial for faculty in college writing programs because of their vast reach of instructional impact. Despite this need, college writing faculty often have limited training in supporting multilingual students (Atkinson et al., 2015; CCCC Statement on Second Language Writing and Writers, 2014).

In/Visible: Designs of Social Experience

Tischner European University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

The regimes of Whiteness, heteronormativity, androcentrism, able-bodiedness or Eurocentrism have for a long time constituted the frameworks of ‘proper’, ‘successful’ or expected social conduct, organising in a normative way social communication, relations and spaces. The regimes have been shaping social life, state policies and institutions, or fields of science and arts. Social practices are imbued with preconceptions concerning race, sexuality, gender, health or ethnicity which have become so commonsensical that it takes a lot of critical effort to go beyond the normative context.

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/12-15, 2020

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Call for Book Chapters: Gamification in the RhetComp Curriculum

updated: 
Thursday, June 25, 2020 - 1:37pm
Chris McGunnigle / Seton Hall University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

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.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically if not irrevocably altered our world in ways that we are only now beginning to realize. Academia has been one of the areas profoundly impacted by this global disaster. Hiring freezes instituted at universities, structural retrenchment, and newly arisen budget crunches have ensured that the academic job market will be beset by uncertainty for the foreseeable future. Even before the onset of this crisis, the academic job market was precarious at best and non-existent at worst.

Making the Most of Mentorship as a Graduate Student (GSC Session) (Roundtable)

Graduate students know they will have, at minimum, a chairperson for their dissertation, but the extent to which that relationship is cultivated as a mentorship, or the availability of other formal and informal mentorships, if often unknown or at best variable. Even within formal, department-directed mentorships, “[w]hile mentorship relationships can be generative and supportive of excellence, they often reflect the hierarchical boundaries of a traditional academic culture” (Dorland et al).
