"As these recent job ads illustrate, requests for teaching philosophies are common in the academic market. In fact, a survey of 457 search committee chairs in six disciplines (English, history, political science, psychology, biology, and chemistry) found that 57% requested a teaching statement at some point in a job search (Meizlish & Kaplan, in press)."

Tomorrow's Professor Msg.#998 Writing a Statement of Teaching Philosophy for the Academic Job Search can be found at:

and the entire TP Listserv is must-read.

Composition Forum started as a print journal but, I think, has really blossomed as an online journal -- certainly, its readership and its impact has swelled (swollen?) since going online. The diversity of genres it contains, as well as the quality of work, is awesome.

I can't wait to read Neal Lerner's book, reviewed in this issue.

cfp: Textual Girls

CFP-Textual Girls
full name / name of organization:
Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
contact email:
jxr67@psu.edu

The lives of girls are mediated in large part by the plethora of texts that surround them. Though adults often attempt to intercede, manipulate, or otherwise circumvent these texts, still the abundance of media and materials surrounding girls leaves them both vulnerable and savvy as they engage with texts that are either meant to address them directly or not.
