Christian Weisser and Christopher Keller invite proposals for a collection
entitled _The Locations of Composition_ that examines how, why, and to what
extent composition studies is enmeshed in space- and place-centered
pedagogies, theories, and epistemologies. The editors are interested in essays
that explore how greater attention to space and place might inform or
complicate important theoretical and pedagogical issues in composition
studies; how composition studies's current uses of spatialized discourses and
metaphors are productive and/or limiting; how compositionists might envision
and embrace new models of space and place; how composition, rhetoric, and
writing are "located" within larger institutional and cultural spheres; or how
theories and pedagogies of location can inform a variety of other
conversations in composition studies.

This collection's ultimate purpose, then, is to explore how compositionists
can begin to make better sense of the various locations of composition. For
more information or to send 500-word abstracts, please contact
or Abstracts should be sent no later than January 15,
