Disability and The Teaching of Writing 2.0
Call For Chapter Proposals (Short Overview Version)
This is a short overview version of a call for chapter proposals for Disability and the Teaching of Writing 2.0. You can read the longer version at this link.
Disability and the Teaching of Writing was an important edited collection released in 2008 that made important connections between disability studies and writing studies. The book remains valuable to many people teaching writing to students, to people who want to know more about how disability affects writing practices, as well as to people who administer writing programs and work to share disability-oriented perspectives with new teachers.
Disability and the Teaching of Writing is influential and helpful, but thirteen years after its release, it also is in need of an update to reflect the growth of both disability studies and writing studies. With this growth in mind, this call seeks contributions for a new edited collection, Disability and the Teaching of Writing 2.0.
We seek submissions for this collection that continue to explore connections between writing studies and disability studies as they exist in 2021. We particularly aim to create an updated collection that centers actions that people take for access, both in their classrooms and in their own writing. We especially seek chapters that offer intersectional perspectives and consider the ways in which systems of oppression affect people in different ways across disability, race, gender, and sexuality. The questions this edition seeks to answer include:
- What does writing studies gain and learn from an emphasis on, and interaction with, disability studies in terms of radical access?
- How do pedagogical practices invent new social possibilities, as a result of reading, applying, and foregrounding the work of disability?
We welcome a variety of types of submissions for this collection. While traditional academic essays and scholarship will certainly be part of Disability and the Teaching of Writing 2.0, we also seek pieces that do not align with academic genres or those that might be shorter in length, including narratives of teaching, activism, or writing with disability. If you have an idea or questions, we welcome you to consult with the editors. We can be reached at: disabilityTW2.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please send a 250-500 word proposal and a 50-word bio with the subject line “DTW 2.0 Proposal” to disabilityTW2.email@example.com by April 16, 2021. We will review and respond to submissions by June 2021.
Thank you, and we look forward to reading your proposals!
