In "Why Johnny Can’t Write, Even Through He Went to Princeton" (2003),
Thomas Bartlett describes the increasing trend toward themed sections of
freshman composition at Ivy League institutions. Interestingly, while
there is evidence that themed sections are popular among not merely
liberal arts schools, but some larger universities, there is little
published scholarship on this topic.

I am interested in assembling a CCCC panel on the role of themed sections
in freshman composition. (Themed sections are alternatively known
as "special topics" courses or "topics in writing.") If you are
interested in participating on this panel, please email me a brief
abstract at as soon as possible. Or, email me
with general ideas we can discuss whether or not this panel would suit
your interests.

If interested, please get in touch soon as I plan to submit a full panel
proposal this May.
