CFP: "Writing Research Across Borders," University of California, Santa Barbara, February 22-24, 2008.

The 3rd International Conference on Writing Research: Recent decades have seen the growth of writing studies in many nations, focused on all levels of education, and all uses of writing in society, using the resources of many different disciplines. This increased research attention to writing reflects an increased recognition of the importance of writing in modern societies. Yet to a large extent the many emerging traditions of writing research have neither connected fully nor shared their work. This conference brings together the many writing researchers from around the world, drawing on all disciplines, and focused on all aspects of writing at all levels of development and in all segments of society. This will be an opportunity to learn from different research traditions, share our findings, seek common agendas, and lay the groundwork for future communication and alliances. Plenary Speakers:
  • Emilia Ferreiro, National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico
  • Gert Rijlaarsdam, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • David Russell, Iowa State University

Featured Panel on Reference Works:

  • Charles Bazerman, University of California, Santa Barbara
  • Charles MacArthur, University of Delaware
  • Peter Smagorinsky, University of Georgia
