Northeast Writing Center Association 2010 CFP

full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Writing Center Association

The NEWCA Steering Committee invites proposals for this year's NEWCA conference, held at Boston University on April 10-11, 2010. Proposals are due by December 31.

The conference theme, Images, explores the rhetoric of the visual world and provides us with intriguing metaphors, lenses and frameworks to explore writing center lore and research.

We encourage investigation of how writing centers' images are created: what practices need to be enlarged or cropped; what stories are told and left untold; and what needs to be re-imaged, re-imagined and re-focused.

Kicking off the conference will be a keynote by Dr. Kathleen Shine Cain, Professor and Director of the Merrimack College Writing Center, followed by a luncheon presentation by Dr. Anne West of the Rhode Island School of Design.
