2023 WRAB Workshop

Welcome to the International Writing Researchers Workshop at WRAB

Trondheim, February 17, 2023

For all participants—both workshop leaders and participants signed up for the workshop—here are the contributions to read in advance of the workshop. They are organized by time slot [see below]. You can download each draft text by simply clicking on the title. 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 through all of the drafts, select a first choice and a second choice to read from each cluster (except the cluster that includes your own text). Please e-mail your reading choices to us at intlreseachersconsortium@gmail.com by January 5, 2023.

Once we have received the reading preferences from you, we will create reading groups for each text, making every effort to see that you get as many first choices as possible, but also ensuring that all papers get a sufficient number of readers. 

We will share the composition of the reading groups by January 15, 2023 giving you one month to read the texts you’ll be discussing during the workshop.

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. As workshop leader, each researcher will present their draft for 5 minutes at the beginning of their assigned cluster time. Remember that there will be **no formal presentations in this workshop.** The bulk of our time together is spent in actual discussion. 

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions: intlreseachersconsortium@gmail.com
