Call for proposals (deadline: 26 May)

Workshop about international higher education writing research at Conference on College Composition and Communication (15-18 February 2023 in Chicago, Illinois, USA).

We are inviting brief proposals for up to twenty-four researcher-participant roles. We seek proposals for studies about higher education writing around the world. By research, we mean a project with a focused research question, an identified methodology (qualitative, quantitative, ethnographic, historical, discourse analysis, corpus, etc.), and the collection of data in some form. This research can be at any stage and does not need to be final. The research can be focused on teaching or studying writing in any language, and can use data in any language. 

Your role in the workshop would be to provide a draft text about the research by the end of November 2022, to read the other workshop facilitators’ texts before attending the conference, and to participate in the day-long workshop by leading a discussion about your project and participating in discussions of a subset of others’ projects. 

We hope to engage researcher-participants from many countries and research traditions in an equal exchange dialogue, learning from each other: the primary focus is on the writing research itself. This full day is an opportunity to different local contexts as a community, encourage collective reflection, and foster collaboration as a network. Here is a link to previous workshops. 

We invite you to submit a brief proposal that describes a research project (in process or recently completed) that you would be interested in sharing with other facilitators and participants. This proposal should briefly explain your project and its goals and methods, then how you currently see your research fitting into a network of writing researchers. When appropriate, describe what kind of audience, scholarly journal, or professional audience might be interested in your research.

Please submit your proposal by 26 May via this form, the requested information should not take you more than 30-45 minutes to complete.

We strongly encourage you to submit a proposal to the CCCC as an individual presenter, as well:

Please write with any questions to:

Co-Chairs of the IRC Steering Committee 
Steffen Guenzel
