full name / name of organization:
North Carolina State University
North Carolina Symposium on Teaching Writing
February 4-5, 2011
The North Carolina Symposium on Teaching Writing is interested in facilitating discussions focusing on how best to navigate and respond to the continued emergence of new media technologies and resultant literacies. As scholars and educators, we must continue to reconsider the role these new media and literacies play in our students’ lives and writing classrooms. More than ever before, students continue to face profound changes in their literacy journeys from the beginning of their education to its culmination. With these changes educators are faced with a new set of opportunities and challenges. Given that reality, the symposium organizers welcome proposals for panels and papers on a variety of topics; those addressing any of the concerns above will be given special consideration.
Related topics include (but are not limited to):
The keynote speaker for this year’s symposium will be Andrea Lunsford, Louise Hewlett Nixon Professor of English and Director of the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University. Professor Lunsford has served as Chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, Chair of the Modern Language Association Division of Writing, and as a member of the MLA Executive Council. She has written or coauthored eighteen books, including Writing Matters: Rhetoric in Public and Private Lives; The Everyday Writer; Everything’s An Argument; and Reclaiming Rhetorica: Women in the Rhetorical Tradition, as well as numerous chapters and articles related to composition and rhetoric.
Specific Guidelines for Submission:
