2019 CCCC Workshop

Welcome to Co-Exploring International Writing Research and Rehearsing Scholarly Performances

For all participants—both workshop leaders and CCCC participants signed up for the workshop—here are the contributions to read in advance of the workshop. They are organized by time slot. You can view each draft by simply clicking on the author name(s) [see below]. This will open a pdf-document in a new window that you can read, download or print, and eventually comment on. Note that a name without a link represents a text not yet submitted. You should read all of the texts once, to get a general sense of them.

Each text includes a description of the institutional context in which the work is occurring, a brief glossary, and a digest of key theorists or theoretical groundings framing the work. Please read these before reading the draft text—they are key to fruitful exchange! Sometimes they can be found at the *end* of the text rather than the beginning.

Once you have read all drafts, choose one from each grouping that most interests you for discussion and engagement in more detail: [A, B, C], [D, E, F], [G, H, I] and [J, K]. Your focused reading set, for example, might be B, F, K if you are an author in the third cluster. You will then join these small groups at the workshop.

At the workshop, you will join the group led by the author you chose in each grouping, for the 45-minute in-depth discussion segment in which it is placed. Please note that Christiane Donahue and Cinthia Gannett join the clusters as additional respondents. Of course, workshop leaders, do not choose another text in the time slot in which your own text is featured.

In order to keep a balance of group size, we will send around a sign-up sheet by March 8th, 2021 asking you to give us your set of preferences: a first and a second choice in each cluster. We will then send you your personal workshop schedule so that you can review that set of papers again before the workshop day. We try hard to give everyone mostly first choices.

Keep in mind that many of these are works in progress—they vary a great deal in length and development. The idea is to share and further our work and thinking through this format. Remember that there will be no formal presentations in this workshop. The bulk of our time together is spent in actual discussion.
