> Call for Papers-Building Bridges: Second Language Writing Across
> Contexts
> This CFP is posted online at:
> http://facstaff.elon.edu/jkapper/buildingbridges/.
> We invite contributions for an edited collection, _Building Bridges:
> Second Language Writing Across Contexts_, which attempts to close
> existing gaps in international conversations among second language
> writing scholars in elementary and secondary schools, two-year colleges,
> post-secondary institutions, and community programs. Much current
> scholarship on second language writing comes out of post-secondary
> institutions in the United States. This volume attempts to build bridges
> between this context and other sites of second language writing
> research, theory, and pedagogy.
> We anticipate contributions to five major sections:
> -Exploring Boundaries: Disciplinary Realms for Second Language Writing 
> -Understanding Contexts: The Current Status of Second Language Writing 
> -Posing Questions: Sites of Inquiry in Second Language Writing 
> -Supporting Collaboration: Projects that Cross Contextual Boundaries 
> -Identifying Resources: Annotated Bibliographies on Second Language
> Writing in Context
> Contributions might focus on, but are not limited to:
> -The current status of second language writing pedagogies, research, or
> theories in a specific context; 
> -Institutional locations of second language writing instruction and
> research in relation to disciplinary boundaries;
> -What second language writing scholars would like to learn from their
> colleagues working in other contexts; 
> -Underrepresented sites of second language writing scholarship; 
> -Questions developing out of teaching or researching second language
> writing in a specific context; 
> -Reports of in-progress or completed research that crosses contextual
> boundaries for second language writing; 
> -Reports of in-progress or completed projects that reflect
> collaborations among scholars working in different contexts; or
> -Suggestions for initiating and supporting collaborations among scholars
> working in different contexts.
> All contributions should be accessible to readers who are new to the
> field of second language writing or who primarily work in a related
> field. Given the volume's focus on contexts, authors also should include
> descriptions of their own institutional contexts.
> We request that submissions not exceed 20 manuscript pages (including a
> list of references, tables and figures, and appendices). Please follow
> the manuscript preparation guidelines outlined in the 5th edition of the
> APA Manual. We plan to send each manuscript out for external review to
> help us assess its quality and to generate feedback for revision.
> Please send submissions to Jessie Moore Kapper (jkapper at elon.edu)-as
> Microsoft Word (.doc) or rich text format (.rtf) files-by June 30, 2006.
