  • Gesa E. Kirsch CWS Graduate Student Symposium

    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 (simonpo2@illinois.edu) 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 (simonpo2@illinois.edu) by April 4, 2014.

    Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
