"English Composition: Crossing Lines, Forging Connections & Extending Opportunities"
MnSCU Conference on Composition
March 16 & 17, 2007
hosted by Century College http://www.century.edu/
Keynote Speakers: Mike Palmquist, Colorado State University & Will Hochman, Southern Connecticut State University
Featured Speaker: Steven Pinker, Harvard University
Undergraduate education in the MnSCU system and across the country is in the midst of change. Due to the demands of shifting demographics and the growing presence of alternative methods of course delivery among others, composition teachers are exploring ways to collaborate with each other, with other faculty and staff across their campuses, and with members of a range of communities to improve the teaching and learning of writing.

Call for Papers
For a SPECIAL ISSUE of
OPEN WORDS: ACCESS And ENGLISH STUDIES
The Teaching, Theorizing, and Research of College-Level Reading and Literacy
Open Words: Access and English Studies is a journal dedicated to publishing articles focusing on political, professional, and pedagogical issues related to teaching composition, reading, ESL, creative writing, and literature to open admissions and non-mainstream student populations. We will be devoting issue 2.2 (spring, 2008) to the multiple disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to reading and literacy. We invite manuscripts from educational psychologists, K-12 reading researchers, compositionists, literacy researchers, and literary theorists to explore ways in which we could improve our college studentsâ€™ attitude toward reading, their comprehension of texts, and their engagement with texts. We are specifically looking for original classroom research on college campuses; an historical summary of reading research and its applicability to open admissions or otherwise at-risk college learners; conversations that go beyond the deficit model of reading instruction; the relationships between multimodal literacies and new media; ways that people put reading to use in their daily lives; and other related topics. If you have any questions, please contact William Thelin at email@example.com.
