About the Symposium

Over the years, the field of L2 writing has grown and expanded in many directions in terms of the theories that have informed research in the field, the inquiry methods employed, and the populations, educational and professional contexts investigated. With the theme “Crossing Disciplinary Boundaries”, the 2010 Symposium intends to be a forum for a retrospective and critical analysis of these various avenues along which L2 writing theory, research, and pedagogy has expanded.

The 2010 Symposium also attempts to look ahead in its exploration of the way in which further crossing of disciplinary boundaries can enrich the field of L2 writing. Internationally recognized experts in L2 writing will explore in their plenary addresses the connections between L2 writing and the fields of composition studies, second language acquisition, cultural studies, L1 writing, educational sciences, and psychology. Five invited colloquia organized by equally well-known scholars will address further issues regarding the connection and cross-fertilization between L2 writing and related disciplines. Finally, the program will also schedule concurrent sessions in which both well-established and junior researchers and teachers will address a wide range of theoretical, methodological, and practical issues in the field of second and foreign language writing.
