Writing and Pedagogy: Call for Papers for Special Issue

 

 

A gap has crept between what writing for the workplace requires and what professional and technical writing departments that were set up with the purpose of preparing our students for workplace writing are producing. The special issue of  Writing and Pedagogy intends to discuss ways that departments, instructor cohorts, and individual instructors  are bridging the gap through new approaches to syllabus design, discussion facilitation, digital feedback, incorporation of digital, social media spaces, and teaching innovations.

Call for Book Chapter Proposals / The Invisible Professor: A Blueprint for Adjunct Faculty

Let’s be honest for a moment.  Right now, higher education is a giant !@#$ show. 

1.  Enterprising graduate students are in limbo because of departmental cuts and new caps on M.A. and Ph.D. programs.   

2.  Adjuncts are being forced back into the classrooms, many lacking adequate insurance, while COVID-19 spreads like wildfire. 

3.  Chairs and deans are running around with their heads cut off due to projected enrollment and budget woes.  Some smaller institutions may be forced to close their iron gates forever.

MLA Middle English Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 20, 2021

Sequestered away from our institutions, colleagues, and students, and yet continuing to seek connections with them, many medievalists have no doubt registered the uncanny resemblance between the newly remote experiences of our work and the already pervasive perceptions of that work as remote, both within and without academe. On the one hand, we find ourselves suddenly at a mandated remove from the special collections and archives that our work often requires, even while immersing ourselves in the twenty-first media technology that, we hope, will convey to students at a distance the excitement of texts originally hand copied on parchment.

"Mens sana in corpore sano" ("Mind is safe in a safe body")Giovenale

 

Sport has always been a significant aspect of human life. From the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece to the birth of football in the second half of the 19th century England and to contemporary sporting activities around the world, sport has always been a vital element of human activities. Sport is essential to health and happiness of people of all ages, genders, races, etc. and it needs to be studied through an interdisciplinary and international approach.
