Call for Papers: Millennium Rhetoric in the Writing Center
Deadline: January 31
What does this mean? We are using millennium to help us think about the different forms of writing that have occurred since the turn of the century. We, as rhetoricians, began to think about other forms of composing with the invention and subsequent dissemination of the personal computer. Before we knew what was happening, a few brave souls were suggesting that writing could be interactive with the inclusion of hyperlinks to other texts, to images, to videos, to audio files. Likewise, new forms of writing have continued to spring up and we would like to challenge you to think about how these new forms have affected the work you do in the writing center.
As writing mediums evolve and transition, the writing center adapts to these changes to provide new consulting experiences and pedagogies for all disciplines. The progression of these new forms of writing and changing technological advancements have furthered the capabilities of millennium rhetoric, for example: digital, visual, multi-modal, queer and cultural. These advancements continue to shape Writing Center pedagogical practices that inform how we consult with and learn from international, ELL, and other historically marginalized people.
We invite you to submit articles that engage in this conversation about Millennium Rhetoric by challenging current theories and pedagogical practices and by thinking outside the box of what Millennium Rhetoric means. Share your experiences, thoughts, and practices, as we continue to transition into the new Millennia and expand the roles that the writing center embodies.
