“Building Cultures of Writing for Tomorrow”

SUNY Council on Writing 23rd Annual Conference

March 29-30, 2013

University at Buffalo @ the Ramada Inn

Proposals due February 1, 2013

Friday Evening Speaker

Kelly Kinney, Binghamton

“Back to the Future: How a Nascent Program Built a Culture of Writing–and Won the CCCC Writing Program Certificate of Excellence”

Saturday Luncheon Speaker

Richard Miller, Rutgers

Author of As if Learning Mattered: Reforming Higher Education (1998) and Writing at the End of the World (2005).

As the University at Buffalo develops its new Center for Excellence in Writing, we turn our attention to the community of writers here, across New York, and around the globe, and we wonder how to strengthen writing in the disciplines, provide opportunities for faculty to write together, develop graduate writing tutors, and use the web to network our resources.  In committing to communities and cultures of writing, we consider the future of universities and writing centers, the nature of a community amid global Englishes, in international education, and across new technologies, all of which may join or divide us. We invite you to join us in this discussion and welcome proposals that consider a range of approaches to the topic at hand, including

*First-year writing

*Tutoring and teaching

*Writing centers

*Writing program administration

*Writing and technology

*Writing in the Disciplines

Proposals for both individual and panel presentations are welcome.

Please send 250-word abstracts for twenty minute papers or 500-word
abstracts for 80 minute sessions to Due February 1, 2013.

Support provided by UB’s CAS, Humanities Institute, Center for Excellence in Writing, and Bedford/StMartins.
