Call for FORUM Manuscripts: Contingent Faculty Activism

Submission deadline: January 17, 2020
Note: Submissions will not be returned.

The editor of FORUM: Issues about Part-Time and Contingent Faculty seeks articles exploring contingent faculty activism.

Nationwide, we have seen a surge of activism in response to the continued corporatization of education–high school teachers walking out in Virginia and California, graduate students unionizing, and adjunct faculty organizing in Florida and North Carolina. This special issue is inspired by this latest surge in action. Composition and English studies has significant scholarship dedicated to documenting and theorizing labor problems and conditions. This special issue concerns what happens next.

Recent anthologies like Composition in the Age of Austerity (2016), Contingency, Exploitation, and Solidarity: Labor & Action in English Composition (2017), and Labored: The State(ment) and Future Work in Composition (2017) do some of this work. The editorial board of Forum invites authors, especially contingent, non-tenure-track, and adjunct faculty in English studies, to contribute to this growing body of scholarship. We are interested in movements, actions, and policies small and large, concerning single departments or entire systems. Where possible, pieces should be framed by or connect to the work of writing and English department faculty.

Writers may approach the theme in a variety of ways, including but not limited to the following:

  • Where has contingent faculty action or activism worked, and in what contexts? What made these initiatives successful? What was learned through these successes?
  • Where has contingent faculty activism not worked, and in what contexts? What caused these initiatives to fail? What was learned through these failures?
  • How might our disciplinary knowledge in Composition, Rhetoric, and English studies best be employed in our activism?
  • How do geographic location, state laws, and institution type affect progress in contingent faculty activism?
  • What possibilities remain for contingent faculty activism in various contexts?

Due to FORUM’s space limitations, essays should be between 1,500 and 2,700 words. While authors should reference current professional/scholarly discussions, extensive literature reviews are not required. Submissions will go through peer review. For further information please contact Amy Lynch-Biniek at

Submit your work electronically to Put the words “FORUM article” in your subject line. Submissions should include the following information:

  • your name
  • your title(s)
  • your institution(s)
  • home address and phone number; institutional address(es) and phone number(s)
  • if applicable, venue(s) where submission was first published or presented previously

Thank you for your interest!

FORUM Submission Guidelines

Top Intellectual Property Developments of 2017

Introduction to the 2017 Annual
Clancy Ratliff

The conversation about copyright and intellectual property has grown and changed since the formation of the CCCC Intellectual Property Caucus over two decades ago. When it began, many of the scholars interested in the issues of authorship, copyright, and intellectual property were techies who were also deeply concerned about internet privacy issues such as security, surveillance, and corporate overreach — reflecting the topics that the Electronic Frontier Foundation has always monitored (and continues to). Read on (full report).

Gloria Anzaldúa Rhetorician Award

Application Deadline: October 10

Purpose: As a scholar whose writings have had a profound impact on the studies of both rhetoric and queer theory, Gloria Anzaldúa’s work continues to encourage us to forge connections across difference and oppression in order to dismantle systems of privilege, whether that be heterosexism, heteronormativity, racism, sexism, or ableism (as a non-exhaustive list). In Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, Anzaldúa shows us that the act of composition cannot be divorced from our identities:

Looking inside myself and my experience, looking at my conflicts, engenders anxiety in me. Being a writer feels very much like being a Chicana, or being queer – a lot of squirming, coming up against all sorts of walls….. That’s what writing is for me, an endless cycle of making it worse, making it better, but always making meaning out of the experience, whatever it may be. (94-95)

In the legacy of her work as a writer, Anzaldúa reminds us that we have a duty to strike out oppression, build alliances, and fundamentally transform cultures. She underscores that we may achieve these goals through the act of writing.

In this spirit, the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) sponsors the Gloria Anzaldúa Rhetorician Award to support scholars whose work participates in the making of meaning out of sexual and gender minority experiences.

Eligibility: Applicants must be accepted to the CCCC Annual Convention program and should currently be enrolled in graduate school or be first time presenters at the Convention.

Award Criteria: All candidates should show potential as scholars of rhetoric and composition. We encourage sexual and gender minority applicants, who may (or may not) identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, or pansexual (LGBTQ2QIAAP), though applicants who do not see themselves reflected in these categories are also encouraged to apply.

The work of a successful candidate should fulfill some of the following criteria:

  • Interrogate the intersections between composition/rhetoric research and queer theory.
  • Contribute to the discourses between sexuality/gender identification and writing research, pedagogy, and/or theory.
  • Address issues of social justice, writing, and sexual/gender identification.
  • Forge new conversations in composition/rhetoric and queer meaning-making.

Award Specifics: Recipients of the Gloria Anzaldúa Graduate Rhetorician Travel Award, up to three, will receive $750 for travel-related expenses to present their work at the CCCC Convention. To honor the recipients, CCCC will also host a reception during the CCCC Annual Convention. The Awards Selection Committee will choose up to three winners based on the following criteria: originality of research; critical engagement with and contribution to current scholarship in queer studies and rhetoric/composition; and potential for lasting projects. Applications must be submitted by October 10, 2024, as a single PDF attachment to Winners will be notified in December.

To apply, interested graduate scholars or first time presenters accepted to the CCCC Annual Convention program must submit the following documents in a single PDF attachment in the order indicated below:

  1. A copy of their accepted proposal (NOT the acceptance letter).
  2. An expanded 3-5 page abstract.
  3. A brief one-page statement of interest identifying the applicant’s research interests, articulating plans for a career in rhetoric and composition, and including a statement of eligibility for the award.

Other Considerations: In the event that the CCCC Annual Convention moves to an online-only event with no in-person component, recipients will receive a complimentary registration for the convention in lieu of any travel funds.
