Building Professional Dispositions for Undergraduate Humanities Majors

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:03pm
MLA 2023 // San Francisco, CA (5-8 Jan. 2023)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.

Joshua Trey Barnett, Associate Editor
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 4, 2022

Each year, Rhetoric Society Quarterly publishes a special issue, the aims of which are to help set the intellectual agenda in rhetorical studies, encourage focused statements on timely topics in rhetorical studies by scholars working in related areas, attract participation by top scholars, and stimulate scholarly activity within the Rhetoric Society of America, such as pre-conference colloquia, convention sessions, and workshops. Recent special issues have addressed relations between rhetoric and disability (2020), demagoguery (2019), and the more-than-human (2017), to name only three examples. As Rhetoric Society Quarterly’s incoming associate editor for special issues, I am pleased to invite proposals for the 2023 special issue.

College students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or other learning disabilities are frequently allowed to complete examinations and assignments under separate rules or even in a separate, distraction-reduced setting. For example, although separate room test accommodations are believed to provide students with equal access to testing and thereby improve performance, little experimental research has examined their effects on actual test/essay scores. Even less research and scholarship focus on the location of testing and the impact of testing centers on students with various documented disabilities.
