Despite the growth of composition studies and pedagogy as fields of interest
in recent decades and the simultaneous development of LGBT studies and queer
theory, these two areas of interest are rarely brought together. Drawing on
George Hillocks idea that theory forms the basis of coherent classroom
practice, this panel hopes to continue the discussion on queer pedagogy by
soliciting papers informed by theory, praxis, critical reflection, and
experience.

CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Essays on Digital Media for Upcoming Collection

Heather Urbanski

For the upcoming essay collection "Writing (and) the Digital Generation"
(under contract with McFarland), I am soliciting contributions that analyze
the many facets of participatory digital entertainment. The key assumption
of this project is that, contrary to the claim that “no one reads anymore,”
a vast “Digital Generation” actually engages in more rhetorical activity
than perhaps any before. This collection seeks essays that describe and
document these participatory activities and how they are changing how we
see writing, perhaps permanently.
