How can literary theory inform community based learning/service
learning? Or vice versa, how does community service transform our
assumptions about literature and the literary aspects of everyday
life? In what ways do current readings in cultural studies extend to
the question of civitas? We are seeking submissions [essays,
narratives, reflections, position papers] for a edited volume on the
interrelationship between literary studies and community-based
learning. We would like to include examples of classroom projects,
reflections on practice, theoretical pieces and close readings.

Please send 200-300 word electronic abstracts to Sue Danielson, PhD,
Associate Professor of English, Portland State University
[] or Ann Marie Fallon, PhD, Assistant Professor of
University Studies, Portland State University,[] by
June 30, 2004. Final submissions will be due on 10/1/04.
