The Program for Writing and Rhetoric at University of Colorado Boulder will host on October 16-17, 2015 the first Conference on Community Writing — a forum for scholars, teachers, program administrators, and community members to share scholarship and examine the theories, technologies, and best practices shaping Rhetoric and Composition, related disciplines, and the communities that house our institutions.
The Conference Committee welcomes proposals from academics of all levels — faculty, graduate students, emeritas — and community members involved with engagement activities for individual papers, panels of 3-4 presenters, and workshops that will help understand how writing functions socially to inform, to empower, and to transform and how to build infrastructure to support engaged research and pedagogy.
For more information about the topics and proposal guidelines for the conference, please visit the Call For Proposals website.
Submission deadline is December 5, 2014. You will be notified of the committee's decision in February 2015.
