28.2 CFP: Writing Studies
the Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing/ Association canadienne de redactologie (CASDW/ACR; formerly Canadian Association of Teachers of Technical Writing/L'Association canadienne de professeurs de rédaction technique et scientifique) invites you to submit proposals for its international conference at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, from May 24-May 26, 2009.
With the conference theme "The Territoire/Places of Writing Studies in Higher Education: Canadian and International Perspectives," we invite proposals that help us identify, interrogate, and illuminate the various locations-physical, administrative, and intellectual-that shape our identities and practices as researchers and teachers of writing.
The theme also echoes the recent name change of our association to reflect the growth of our field and the rich diversity of the work undertaken in Writing Studies, including genre studies; rhetorical theory; composition studies; engineering communication; business communication; writing in digital environments; writing centre theory and practice; writing in the disciplines; professional, technical, and scientific communication, and more.
Please see the complete call for proposals in English and French (our two conference languages) on our web site at http://casdw-acr.mcgill.ca/en/cfps.htm (English) or http://casdw-acr.mcgill.ca/fr/cfps.htm (French).
