Northeast Writing Center Association 2010 CFP

Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 10:45pm
Northeast Writing Center Association

The NEWCA Steering Committee invites proposals for this year's NEWCA conference, held at Boston University on April 10-11, 2010. Proposals are due by December 31.

The conference theme, Images, explores the rhetoric of the visual world and provides us with intriguing metaphors, lenses and frameworks to explore writing center lore and research.

We encourage investigation of how writing centers' images are created: what practices need to be enlarged or cropped; what stories are told and left untold; and what needs to be re-imaged, re-imagined and re-focused.

CFP Suburban and Urban Western Literature and Culture. The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2011.

Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 4:09am
Professor Neil Campbell, University of Derby, UK

The journal Western American Literature invites submissions examining the urban and suburban West in literature, film, television, memoirs, and other forms. We are interested in original work investigating the urban and suburban from a variety of critical perspectives. You might, for example, consider individual writers with a strong urban/suburban focus to their work, specific themes that reflect upon the increased urbanization of the West, place-based studies, environmental issues raised by sub/urbanism, or theoretical approaches that engage with and illuminate our perception of the topic (such as critical regionalism). Interdisciplinary essays and those taking innovative approaches to the topic are particularly welcome.
