Want to Present at CBW 2019?

“Inside Our Classrooms: Basic Writing Today” will highlight the work of scholars of color

The CBW has a long-standing commitment to racial justice and inclusivity. As such, we are designating a portion of our program to highlighting the work of scholars of color, with particular emphasis on newer scholars in a poster session focused on classroom pedagogy.

Interested in presenting? Please send a 100-200 word proposal to lclark@lagcc.cuny.edu. Please use the subject line “Inside Our Classrooms” CBW 2019 Proposal.

  1. In your proposal, please describe your work in Basic Writing with a special emphasis on your classroom pedagogy. How would you highlight and share this work in a poster session? Proposals need not present a program-wide perspective (although that is welcome). We are interested in what you’re doing in your classrooms today!
  2. Let us know if this would be your first presentation at CBW/CCCC.
  3. Please make sure to include contact information and institutional affiliation.

Accepted proposals will be featured in a poster session at CBW 2019 on Wednesday, 13 March 2019 during our preconference workshop at CCCC 2019.

Please feel free to touch base with questions before sending in your proposal!

Deadline: 2/15/19

CBW 2019 Is On The Way!

As we get ready for CBW 2019, CBW Board Members share what they are most excited about this year!

Marisa Klages, our co-chair is looking forward to connecting with colleagues.

Jason Evans says, “I’m looking forward to a chance to think constructively about basic writing with colleagues from across the country, the first-ever TYCA national conference, and a conference program shaped by Vershawn Young!”

Bill Lalicker says, “At CCCC 2019, we come together to recognize the intellectual and rhetorical gifts bestowed by our students of every color and gender and origin and identity, and to discover new ways to support their voices.”

Susan Naomi Bernstein says, “I am most looking forward to connecting with colleagues.”

J. Elizabeth Clark says, “CCCC 2019 is going to be a wonderful opportunity to focus on teaching in two year institutions as TYCA inaugurates its first pre-conference workshop. We’re looking forward to the cross over between CBW and TYCA with lots of new participants! I’m also jazzed about our poster sessions and learning from new scholars and teachers!”
