Writing Across the Curriculum (MMLA)

Alejandra Ortega / MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 17, 2022

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2022 conference theme is “Post-Now.” The conference will take place November 16-21 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. (https://www.luc.edu/mmla/convention/callforpapers/)

 

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by exploring our ethical responsibilities as instructors of writing, our pedagogy, and our work with students as they seek to find their voice in composition classrooms. 

 

Topics might include, but are not limited to:

 

Jewish Studies and the Fourth Gospel

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

GCRR Press is inviting papers for a themed article collection relating to the New Testament Gospel of John for inclusion in a proposed scholarly anthology in the field of Jewish Studies. Topics should explore the Fourth Gospel in regard to its representation, depiction, and treatment of "the Jews" in the Fourth Gospel. By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide an historical context for understanding not only the Jewish Jesus but the specific framework in which Johannine Christianity was tied intrinsically to ancient Judaism, while simultaneously distancing itself of Jewish thought and culture.

TEACHING WRITING IN COLLEGE

Lisa Diehl/University of North Georgia
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 3, 2022

The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to the conference theme of “Change.” By June 4, 2022 please submit and abstract of 300-500 words, a brief bio, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Lisa Diehl, Chairperson, at lisa.diehl@ung.edu. Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of culture, identity, and expression. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.

Kristin Prins, Kristin Ravel, and I are seeking chapters for an edited collection tentatively titled Feminist Design Rhetorics: Theories, Practices, and Pedagogies for Building Equity and Collective Justice.  We hope authors will explore questions such as: What are the roles of design, technologies, and rhetoric in furthering intersectional feminist activism? What impacts do intersectional approaches to design bring to our rhetorical theory, practice, and pedagogy? And how might we use a feminist design lens to make rhetorical choices that center accountability, equity, and social justice?

Thursday, March 31, 2022

Teaching and learning are always a series of voyages and returns.

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, swaths of books about the pivot to online learning have emerged, many focused on practical classroom instruction as a much-needed kind of spiritual manna in a time comprised of uncertainty and abrupt shifts in normative praxes. These contributions capture a historical watershed moment where the voyage is key (e.g., Chan, Bista, and Allen, 2021; Jansen and Farmer-Phillips, 2021; Lemov, 2020; Reimers et al., 2020; Grays-Wiley, 2020).

Gone But Not Quite Forgotten: Recovering Lost Writers and Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2022 - 3:42pm

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals from faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars for its 2022 Annual Conference on the theme of recovering lost writers and lost texts. We are especially interested in recovering marginalized voices, finding reasons for their disappearance, and charting a path to bring their writing and lives back into the light of current scholarship. Lost or forgotten work by canonical authors would also be welcome subjects of literary inquiry as part of this call, as would be papers that trace the evolution of a literary text from manuscript to magazine publication to book form if the changes are radical.

SURGE: Writing Beyond the Binary

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 13, 2022

This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.
