Image Events: From Theory to Action (edited collection)
Eds. Joe Wilferth and Kevin DeLuca

In a world awash in images, in a culture wherein images constitute the most influential form of public discourse, constructing image events (namely staged acts of protest designed for media dissemination) has become a crucial rhetorical strategy for corporate hegemony and citizen resistance. Such events, as has been demonstrated by Greenpeace, by PETA, by the Truth campaign against big tobacco and so many more, aim to heighten public awareness and affect cultural or mainstream ideographs.

CFP: Reading and Writing Orwell's 1984 (3/1/05; collection)

1984 holds a unique position in the contemporary canon, because of its
accessibility to a wide range of students, its widespread effect on literary
and popular culture, and its very strong resonances with contemporary
events. For an edited collection, we are seeking articles based on close
description of student readings of this text, both to provoke more general
discussion on how varied students work with a single, commonly-taught text,
and how students in an increasingly Orwellian society read the book's social
and political content.
Articles from any pedagogical and theoretical perspectives are welcome, with
the proviso that articles in the finished collection should be centered in

Reflections on Writing: Pedagogy, Expectations, and Best Practices
________________________________

________________________________

With the renewed influence on writing competency, instructors at all levels of the educational system are revisiting the ways in which they conceive of good writing and good teaching practices, as well as the ways in which they present these ideas to their students. Further, the current focus on composition pedagogy emphasizes the reflective aspect of the process and serves to encourage instructors to conceive of writing not merely as a sequence of assignments or activities, but as a deliberate representation of the theoretical framework that informs those activities.

Call for Publication
Collection: Non-Traditional Approaches to Teaching English Studies

This collection addresses a disjunction between the content taught in
English Studies and the theory and practice used to teach this content.
While the canon wars will always rage, non-traditional content based on
race, gender, imperialism, and class has become an expected aspect of the
literatures read and discussed in English classrooms; however while
questions of gender, class, and race have become central aspects of what we
teach, by-and-large how we teach in the English classroom remains firmly
rooted in traditional Western rhetorics and hermeneutics.
