Meeting Description:

Call for Papers:

Teaching Language Change across the Curriculum: A Roundtable

The Executive Committee on Language Change at the Modern Language Association (MLA) is accepting papers for a roundtable session to be held at the annual conference in January 2015 in Vancouver. We seek papers exploring the most effective ways to address the concept of language change when teaching specific topics in literature, composition, rhetoric, linguistics, or language courses. Papers may focus on best practices in course design and lesson planning; on addressing the needs of particular student demographics, university curricula, and state and federal standards; or on applications of specific pedagogical theories. Empirically-based reflection on teaching practice is appreciated but not required.
