Series Editor: Michael A. Pemberton, Georgia Southern University
The Across the Disciplines Books series is closely tied to published themed issues of the online, open access, peer reviewed journal Across the Disciplines (ATD). Typically, two such guest edited issues appear each year and contain between six and eight articles. Most volumes in this series will be edited collections containing articles from ATD's themed issues as well as several other chapters that will provide an expanded, richer, and more comprehensive treatment of the topics being addressed. In keeping with the editorial mission of ATD, these volumes are devoted to language, learning, academic writing, and writing pedagogy in all their intellectual, political, social, and technological complexity. Works with a particular emphasis on WAC/WID, disciplinary language practices, praxis, and the scholarship of teaching and learning are especially welcome.
The Across the Disciplines Books Series is a collaborative publication venture between the WAC Clearinghouse and University Press of Colorado. It is designed to make new books available freely on the Web and in low-cost print editions.
Queries should be directed via electronic mail to Michael A. Pemberton, Georgia Southern University, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Initial proposals for special issues of Across the Disciplines should follow the journal's submission guidelines and be modeled after previous CFPs. Once the proposal has been accepted and the CFP distributed, the guest editor(s) and the series editor will explore the possibility of developing the issue into an Across the Disciplines Books volume. Authors wishing to propose a volume not directly tied to an issue of ATD should outline the rationale and projected audience for the book and its relation to other books in the field; include the book's table of contents or a chapter outline, the estimated length and the timetable for completion, and, if available, the introduction and a sample chapter. Please also send the CV of the author(s) or editor(s).
