CALL FOR PAPERS
CASLL Conference: Inkshed 18
May 12 - 15, 2001
Inkshed 18 will be held in Canmore, Alberta, a scenic resort town in the
foothills of the Rockies. The organizing committee invites proposals on
the topic of "Reading Contexts," a theme encompassing both how texts are
read and how writers "read" the varied audiences and contexts for which
they write. Reading contexts may include the classroom, the workplace,
and the media.
Participants might consider such questions as
* how students read (or learn to read) academic texts and assignments;
* how we can help students "read" the contexts in which their writing
will be taken up by audiences real and imagined;
* how we create contexts for reading in our classrooms;
* how we read student papers and how they "read" our responses to their
* how professional writers “read” contexts and how their documents are
* how genre affects reading and writers' reading of context.
Proposals may be individual or collaborative and may include
presentations, workshops, panels or performances (limited to about 20
minutes per participant).
Please submit your proposals by January 31, 2001, to the Inkshed 18
