April 6, 2012: University of Connecticut 7th Annual Conference on the Teaching of Writing, Proposals Due Feb 20
full name / name of organization:
Freshman English Program, University of Connecticut
The University of Connecticut’s Freshman English Program is calling for presentation, panel, and roundtable proposals from instructors of writing (in all disciplines and programs) for our Seventh Annual Conference on the Teaching of Writing. We invite creative engagement with this year’s conference theme, construed broadly, in the hopes of expanding our understanding of how we represent the teacher, the writer, teaching, and writing (not to mention the teacher/writer, and teaching writing), to students and to ourselves as well in other contexts. We also invite proposals on other topics relating to the teaching of writing.
Our keynote speaker is Dr. Joseph Harris from Duke University, author of Rewriting: How to Do Things with Texts, who will address "Dead Poets and Wonder Boys: Writing Teachers in the Movies."
The conference will take place Friday, 6 April 2012 @ the University of Connecticut, Storrs.
Proposals should be approximately 250-300 words and should include
Students: Undergraduate and graduate students in any writing course are encouraged to submit proposals. Collaboration (see below) between instructors and students is also encouraged.
