Happy Labor Day Colleagues,
The Council on Basic Writing would like to start to get a handle on how BW will be represented at CCCC in 2015. If you had a paper, panel, or roundtable accepted at CCCC that will have a primary focus on BW, can you please send me an email? In your email, please include your session title and any relevant abstracts.
Our purposes in collecting this information is two-fold. First, we would like to start thinking about how we might promote BW panels ahead of CCCC in order to encourage robust participation both by CBW members and by the larger CCCC community. Second, we would like to start considering how and why BW panels are accepted by the larger CCC organization in order to consider how we might foster more BW scholarship at CCCC.
Please send me your acceptance information by September 15. You can get my email address on the listserv or on the CBW blog (see “Board” info) or you can IM me on FB. At this time, please send this information to just me so that we do not burden the list with these announcements. In the future, we will send out another email asking you if you’d like to be included in the BW session pamphlet that we create for CCCC. As CCCC approaches, we will also encourage you to advertise your sessions on the email list and on our FB page.
Mike, Co-Chair of the CBW Executive Board
