> CASLL Conference: Inkshed 18
> May 12 - 15, 2001
> Canmore, Alberta
> Reading Contexts
> 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
> ead 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
> 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 writing;
> how professional writers “read” contexts and how their documents
> are read;
> 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 February 15, 2001, to the Inkshed 18
