Call for Submission to EAC Conference Volume

We are delighted to announce that an edited Volume of selected papers presented at the 2018 EAC Conference has been provisionally accepted for publication in the International Exchanges book series by the WAC Clearinghouse/University Press of Colorado. The WAC Clearinghouse is the leading global resource for open access electronic publications in writing studies and writing across the curriculum.

Submissions for English Across the Curriculum: Voices from around the World should be revised versions of papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on English Across the Curriculum on 3-5 December 2018. Inclusion in the collection will be determined through peer review by the editors. Presenters from across disciplines and institutions are particularly encouraged to submit. Collaborative submissions are welcome. In particular, we encourage contributions that focus on:

  1. Content and Language Integrated Learning
  2. Academic literacy in the discipline
  3. Writing and/or Speaking Across the Curriculum
  4. Assessment literacy for teachers across the disciplines
  5. Engaging staff and students in the discipline in improving language/literacy skills
  6. Evaluating the impact of any of the above

In addition to invited chapters by plenary speakers, the Volume will be divided into two sections - (a) for research-focused papers and (b) for papers relating to teaching practice/insights.

Please note the following important change from the original website call on this website:
