The East Central Writing Center Association (ECWCA) is now accepting proposals for the 2022 conference at Michigan State University (March 31 to April 2, 2022) on “Critically Imagining Writing Centers: Stories, Counterstories, and Futures.” We invite you to think of storytelling broadly and to draw upon different methods of critically imagining and sharing stories–including but not limited to restorying, counter storytelling, queer storytelling, racial storytelling, antenarratives or protostories, and oral histories–to reimagine and realize the work of writing centers but also to celebrate the work already being done
We welcome a range of presentation types including workshops, panels, lightning talks, maker activities, interactive art, and participatory activities. Because we do not privilege Standard Written English, we recognize, honor, and value multiple Englishes in proposals. Proposals from people whose voices have historically been left out from academic spaces and conversations are especially welcome.
The deadline for proposal abstracts (250 words) is October 15, 2021. Visit ecwca.org for more information on creating a proposal and how to submit. For questions or concerns, reach out to Dr. Grace Pregent, Conference Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
