“Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different
waters flow.”

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos’ wisdom remains salient. None
would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every
scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual
flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend â€" a new branch
from the old.

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Writing and the Environment

updated: 
Tuesday, January 6, 2009 - 3:27pm
Randall McClure

Focus:
In recent years, many schools have added sustainable, green practices to
their mission statements. Some have also added course requirements that
help students develop an ecological perspective while others have changed
operations to limit their institution’s impact on the environment. Writing
teachers have often contributed to this charge by integrating readings and
writing activities that help students better understand their relationship
to the environment. These teachers believe in the shared responsibility for

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Writing as Exploration and Discovery

updated: 
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 3:41am
Vincent Walsh

In this paper I describe a novel form of writing pedagogy that encourages
students to select their own topics for papers based on course readings
and class discussion. The purpose behind this approach is to facilitate a
process by which students are enabled to engage in a personal way with
their writing, in effect, to "own" their own writing process. Too often,
students write for the professor, responding to prompts or assigned
topics, assuming that what they produce has to be "what the professor
wants to hear." In effect, they become alientated from what they write,
trying to conform to a standard of evaluation that is outside themselves.
Since students will be doing a great deal of writing beyond
