Call for Proposals: Multimodal and Multilingual Composing
Call for Papers Date:
Steven Fraiberg and Xiaoye You are seeking contributors to an edited collection, Re-Mixing and Mashing: Multilingual and Multimodal Composing. This edited collection aims to develop a rich understanding of multilingual composing processes across a range of contexts—classrooms, communities, workplaces, institutions, home environments. We further aim to extend the scope of multilingual research by developing rich descriptions of the ways that multimodal activities are deeply blended into speaking, reading, writing practices co-constituting complex ecologies distributed across space and time. To this end, we seek interdisciplinary scholarship on multilingual and multimodal literacy practices across a wide range of disciplines.
We welcome 1-2 page (300-600 word) proposals for research-focused papers that explore the complexities and issues of multilingual and multimodal composing processes.
Deadline for Proposals: September 1, 2009. Send electronically (prefer MS Word) to Steven Fraiberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
