The Composition and Rhetoric Area of the PCA/ACA seeks papers/projects
addressing the intersection of Popular Culture with Composition studies
and/or Rhetoric, as each of these terms can be most broadly construed.
We are interested in popular representations of writing, rhetoric, and
instruction in both, as well as the composed or rhetorical nature of
culture as expressed in popular artifacts. Topics include, but are not
limited to:

Telling the Whole Story:
Communication in the Classroom and Community

Join us as we examine our own efforts to tell “the whole story” in today’s
classrooms and communities, facing challenges ranging from course curricula
to information literacy to our attempts to understand competing narratives
about global issues such as climate change, national security, and
international conflict.

Keynote speaker Helen Glover will share her experiences as a Navy
instructor, a contestant on reality television show “Survivor,” and a talk
show host on WHJJ radio.

April 10-13, 2008

Buffalo, New York

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.
