CFP: Conference on Community Writing

University of Colorado Boulder, October 16-17, 2015

January 14, 2015 11:39 AM
The con­fer­ence theme, Build­ing Engaged Infra­struc­ture, chal­lenges atten­dees to build eth­i­cal and durable community-university part­ner­ships through teach­ing, research, and com­mu­nity writ­ing, simul­ta­ne­ously chal­leng­ing fac­ulty who do community-engaged work to find sup­port within uni­ver­sity depart­ments. The theme also explores how to build insti­tu­tional sup­port for depart­ments them­selves as they become more com­mit­ted to community-engaged instruc­tion and schol­ar­ship across the cur­ricu­lum.  Build­ing that infra­struc­ture of sup­port, resources, and rela­tion­ships is essen­tial if the work is to be sustainable.

The organizers wel­come pro­pos­als from aca­d­e­mics of all lev­els involved with engage­ment activ­i­ties and com­mu­nity mem­bers involved in work­ing for social change for indi­vid­ual papers, pan­els of 3–4 pre­sen­ters, work­shops, and dig­i­tal “posters”  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. Please feel free to con­tact the con­fer­ence com­mit­tee before propos­ing with any ques­tions about pre­sent­ing or ideas for workshops.

Submission deadline is February 2, 2015
