Writing Across the Curriculum

At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix).  While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.

The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

MLA 2019 Pitch to Page: Teaching the Publication Process

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 11:25am

Professors have been advised to “publish or perish” for nearly 100 years. First coined in 1927, this phrase warns professors that in order to maintain their jobs, they must publish their work. Publishing has always been central to academia, as it is the primary vehicle through which scholars share their research with a larger audience. Yet, in recent years, academia has changed so that publishing is not reserved for those who are already professors. Instead, publishing has become a requirement for any one who is applying to become a professor, with PhD students being encouraged to publish their research before they have finished their degrees.

Call for Chapters in and Edited Volume

Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia

I am seeking contributors to an edited volume on academic deviance titled, Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia.

My own current involvement in this project stems from substantial fieldwork on the topic, in particular fraudulent academic conferences that offer various amenities such as vacation/tourist packages; guaranteed acceptance for participation; guaranteed publications in conference proceedings; invitations for future keynote speaking engagements; all at the expense of allocated college/university research budgets.
