We invite your participation in the Arizona Writing and Social Justice Conference, a two-day conference on writing and the pursuit of social justice in Arizona and the world.
This trans-disciplinary conference will discuss how writing engages and/or supports justice movements for disempowered and marginalized communities.
ASU and UA are organizing the conference to integrate scholarship and practice from creative writing, community literacy, English education, ESL studies, literature studies, rhetoric, and other writing-centered disciplines.
The range of potential topics includes:
Speakers may include students, faculty, Arizona writers, social activists, and community members.
To participate, submit a brief 150-200 word abstract for a 20-minute presentation and include a bio of equal length. Send these to both Joe.Lockard@asu.edu and firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30, 2017. Presentation format is flexible, including prose or poetry readings, talks on activism and writing, or academic papers. We will send acceptance notices by December 15.
Some selected student presentations from both universities will receive an honorarium as travel support. The conference will encourage mixed ASU-UA presentation panels and seek to further discussion between campus communities.
