Call for Proposals: Corpus & Repository of Writing

The Corpus & Repository of Writing (Crow) team is pleased to share a call for proposals for “Writing Research Without Walls: A Symposium for Interdisciplinary Writing and Collaboration.” The symposium will take place at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN on October 4-6, 2018. The plenary speakers will be Dr. Shondel Nero, Associate Professor of Teaching and Learning, New York University, and Dr. Susan M. Conrad, Professor of Applied Linguistics, Portland State University.

This symposium will feature empirical interdisciplinary writing research with focuses on technology and undergraduate research. They welcome both scholars studying undergraduate writing and undergraduate students conducting research in writing studies.  Students and scholars from applied linguistics, rhetoric and composition, second language writing, corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and technical communication are encouraged to submit.

For this symposium, Crow invites proposal submissions for individual papers, posters, panel presentations, work in progress (WIP), workshops, and media installations. All proposals submitted should clearly engage with data-driven research (quantitative and/or qualitative approaches). We highly encourage those interested in the interdisciplinary and collaborative frameworks that Crow values to submit proposals. All submissions—even those that are WIP—should clearly articulate their research methods. Writing scholars at all levels in the university (tenured/tenure-track professors, adjunct professors/lecturers, graduate students, and undergraduate students) are encouraged to apply.

All proposals must be submitted by February 1, 2018, and applicants will be notified about acceptance decisions by March 15, 2018. The full call for proposals can be found here.
