The Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) will hold a summer regional conference at the Clermont College branch of University of Cincinnati on June 8—10, 2017. The conference theme is “Diverse Writers, Diverse Writing” and the deadline for proposals is February 15, 2017. For more information, you can visit the CCCC Summer Regional Conferences website or the conference website. From the CCCC Website:
The goal of this conference is to support best practices in working with diverse students in diverse writing environments. Examining the intersection of diversity and writing is critical in developing engaging and ethical composition courses. NCTE and CCCC have a long history of supporting students from diverse backgrounds with the 1974 Resolution on the Students’ Right to their Own Language and the recent Supporting Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Learners in English Education. In 2016, instructors are still concerned about honoring their students’ linguistic varieties while also working with them to write in different modes across multi-disciplinary audiences. As new forms of composition emerge, instructors are seeking ways to incorporate digital literacy activities for students to write for a range of readers. This conference will provide an opportunity for participants to share their research in digital writing, multimedia writing, working with diverse students, and writing across the curriculum.
This is a great opportunity for English educators in Ohio to attend or present. Proposals are due by February 15, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
