CFP: Revisiting Commenting: Genre, Knowledge Transfer, and the Work of Composition (4/25/2009; CCCC 2010, 3/17/10-3/20/10)

CCCC 2010

The invitation to "revisit, rethink, revise, renew" in the 2010 CCCC Call for Proposals suggests the important work done when Composition was a young field and scholars such as Richard Braddock and Mina Shaughnessy revisited common wisdom about the teaching, learning and practices of writing; their revisitations allowed them to rethink seeming truths and prompted the field to revise our understandings of error, of the thesis, of the teacher's role in the classroom. This panel proposal undertakes a project in the spirit of these earlier revisitations. Specifically, I am seeking papers that revisit and rethink the intersection of commenting and genre in our freshman writing classes in order to renew our conversations about the work of Composition.

Pakistaniaat: A journal of Pakistan studies

We seek submissions for our second issue to be published in December 2009. The issue is loosely themed around the past, present, and future of US-Pakistan relations, but we will also consider works beyond the scope of this particular theme.

Please submit your scholarly articles, creative works (fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry), or book reviews that focus on some aspect of Pakistan or Pakistani culture. We read all year.

Call For Papers
The Italian verb tradire and the English verb betray derives from the Latin tradere (to hand over) but in modern languages it assumes a negative connotation, emphasizing the action of someone who surrenders to the enemy his flag, his fortress, his property, or someone who is unfaithful to his side, or cheats those who trust him. To betray means to violate one's duty, or perhaps, to replace an existing order with a new one, thus marking a passage from the old to the new, from before to after.

[UPDATE] The Spatial Significance of Native American Stories and Ideology

Catherine Rainwater, Cristine Soliz, Anna Lee Walters

We are now accepting submissions for a collection of stories, essays, and poems for a proposed book on comparative American spatial concepts, partially titled "Stories the Land Holds." The editors are looking for texts variously addressing "stories in the land." What are the stories the land tells? Vine Deloria has warned us of problems that result from a perspective that is not fundamentally spatial, and such has been the case for current problems that range from ecological disaster to fanatical environmentalism and bundled mortgages. We believe that these complex and problematic American events can be understood more fully from a Native American perspective.

My colleague Dr. Deborah Poe and I are seeking articles for an edited collection tentatively titled "Between Worlds." The project is most invested in work which offers social and material opposition to binary ways of thinking about identity and difference. The collection will blend creative prose and criticism like Claudia Rankine's and Juliana Spahr's American Women Poets in the 21st Century: Where Lyric Meets Language did with the genre of poetry.

We are seeking critical essays on the above issues and themes in the short fiction or novels of the following authors:

CCCC Panel - Wikis and composition

Kerry Dirk/Virginia Tech

Wikis are becoming increasingly common as pedagogical tools in composition classrooms, as the nature of a wiki allows for easy collaboration among students and increased communication beyond the face-to-face classroom.

I'm hoping to put together a CCCC panel that questions and/or explores commonly held assumptions or beliefs about the wiki. Proposals might also explore how elements found in the traditional classroom change when moved to a wiki.

For example:

- How does the collaborative nature of a wiki change writing?

- Is the wiki truly more democratic than a face-to-face classroom?

- What is the relationship between students and teachers when using a wiki?

- How does the level of engagement change?
