Welcome to CASDW/ACR 2020/2021!

We are pleased to welcome new and returning members of the Executive. The Executive met recently to discuss plans for the coming year, namely more serious commitment to diversity and inclusion in Writing Studies and related fields.

Joel Heng-Hartse, Vice President and Conference Program Chair, is working with the program committee on an exciting conference for 2021 (updates to come) and will be in touch with last year’s scheduled presenters. Congress will issue a decision on Nov. 1 to indicate whether the 2021 conference will be hybrid or virtual. Please contact Joel at Joel_HengHartse@sfu.ca if you have any questions about the conference.

Also, Kim Mitchell and Sean Zwagerman, co-editors of the Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing/Rédactologie, are currently fielding three submissions, so keep your eyes out for those.

Best wishes as we continue to unite through these times,

Dana Landry, CASDW-ACR President
