Call for Proposals: Special Issue of Composition Studies on The Writing Major
Guest Editors: Linda Adler-Kassner, Heidi Estrem, and Written Communication colleagues at Eastern Michigan University
In response to developments in writing technologies, studentsâ€™ conceptions of writing and reading, and new scholarship in the field of composition studies, many writing programs and majors have begun to rethink how writing is defined, studied, and enacted. Along with this redefinition have come new approaches and curricula. For a special issue of Composition Studies, we invite proposals that theorize or explore the creation of the new Writing Major, freestanding program, or department.
