Joyce Meier of Michigan State University and I are editing a collection of scholarly essays on the theme of Voice and Empowerment in English studies. Cambridge Scholars Publishing is interested in publishing this book.
As faculty members, we try to empower our students and to encourage them to develop their own voices. We also want our students to hear the different voices of others in their classrooms, in cities, and in literature. Working in a culture that often has an anti-intellectual bias, how can we find our own voices and empower ourselves? We welcome scholarly papers about the topics below.
teaching composition, literature, linguistics, etc.
works of literature that develop the themes of voice and empowerment
preparing students for the work world
English departments and our society
the lives of our students
the creative process
computer or on-line instruction
race, class, and gender studies
Please e-mail completed papers to both of us us as a Word attachment. Thank you very much for your consideration.
