Across the Disciplines, a refereed journal devoted to language, learning, and academic writing, publishes articles relevant to writing and writing pedagogy in all their intellectual, political, social, and technological complexity. Across the Disciplines shares the mission of the WAC Clearinghouse in making information about writing and writing instruction freely available to members of the CAC, WAC, and ECAC communities.

Table of Contents for Volume 11, January through December 2014

Issue 1 (January through June)

Featured Articles:

Effective Comments and Revisions in Student Writing from WAC Courses, Joel Wingard, Moravian College, and Angela Geosits, The Catholic University of America.

Although teacher commentary on student papers and students' revisions have been investigated separately, the relationship between commentary and revision has not been much studied. Drawing in multiple drafts of papers from first-year composition and writing-in-the-disciplines courses, the authors measure the extent and kind of revisions made by students after receiving feedback from their instructors and conclude that revisions—especially substantive revisions—correlate with comments that address substantive matters.

Calls for Special Issues

Create, Perform, Write: WAC, WID, and the Performing and Visual Arts (Proposals due June 1, 2014)

The performing and visual arts have much to offer writing studies in terms of process, creativity, design, delivery, and habits of mind (and body). We invite proposals for articles that explore connections between the teaching and learning of writing and the performing and visual arts in the classroom or studio, in writing centers and writing fellows programs, and elsewhere across the disciplines.
