Special CFP: Play, visual strategies and innovative approaches to graduate student writing development
The Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing/Rédactologie invites submissions on playfulness, visual strategies, and alternative or innovative approaches to graduate student writing development. The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2017.
The guest editors invite submissions that respond to any of the following questions:
- What alternative or innovative pedagogies inspire graduate students to think deeply about their research and to write with confidence?
- How might playfulness, visual strategies and alternative or innovative approaches be important for graduate student writing development?
- What are some challenges with using playful or visual approaches to engaging with writing/stumbling blocks? What are some successes?
- What strategies or tactics do supervisors, writing centre tutors or teaching assistants use to support post/graduate students with navigating stuck places?
- While there is a sense that space is important in the pedagogies of research writing literature, how space is conceptualised and applied in the research writing literature is limited. As such, how might an understanding of liminal writing spaces be informed by theories of place, space, and embodiment?
Theoretical and empirical submissions, as well as reflections on practice, are invited.
Please note: The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2017.
Manuscripts should not exceed 9,000 words (including references and appendices), and should be submitted electronically in MSword (.doc or .docx format). Please refer to the APA Handbook (6th edition) for style guidelines. Manuscripts that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered suitable for review. Please note: The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2017. Online submissions are made using a registered account here.
