Special: Rethinking the Structures of Academic Writing
Rethinking structures of academic writing in times of exacerbated inequity
Our call for papers solicits submissions which explore from critical perspectives how issues of inequity can be addressed in the instruction and practice of academic writing and discourse. Access to, and success in, academic discourse is often a challenge for students who enter higher education from positions of academic, social, or economic disadvantage. Often designated as "remedial," "at risk," or "non-traditional," such students may be learning English as an additional language, may be first-in-family university students, and/or may be marginalized by identities of race, gender, class, and age. We seek submissions that critically examine, and aim to reform, issues of inequity in academic writing pedagogies, academic writing discourses, literacy practices, grading practices, or writing-related institutional policies, at the undergraduate or graduate level.
