The Center for Writing Studies conference planning committee invites proposals for the 5th Annual Gesa E. Kirsch CWS Graduate Student Symposium, April 25, 2014, from 8:30 am-4:30 pm. Graduate students from all departments are welcome to present on topics of interest within writing, literacy, discourse, rhetoric, education, and communication. The symposium is a supportive conference where graduate students can present and receive feedback from a small, interested group of peers and faculty.
We encourage a range of presentation types, from traditional papers to multimodal, performative, reflective, or experimental projects. Please send a title and short abstract (100-200 words) to Kaia Simon (email@example.com) by April 4, 2014. Specify your preference for either a 10- or 20-minute presentation.
Additionally, one session of the Symposium will provide an opportunity for small-group workshops. This workshop session is designed to be a writing group experience for graduate students to get feedback on written work, including seminar papers and/or upcoming conference papers. To participate, contact Kaia Simon (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 4, 2014.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
