Call for Proposals

Thank you for your interest in the Symposium on Second Language Writing. The proposal deadline was November 15, 2010. The review results will be sent out by early January, 2011.

The 2011 Symposium Organizing Committee seeks proposals for 20-minute presentations that address various topics within the field of L2 writing--broadly defined.

Any topic related to second language writing theory, research, or teaching is welcome; we especially welcome proposals that seek to challenge the status quo in the field by introducing new topics as well as new theoretical and methodological approaches.

As with all previous nine Symposium iterations, we are interested in L2 writing issues in any second or foreign language for any age groups in personal, academic, professional and civic contexts. Given the theme of the Symposium, we particularly encourage proposals that address the issue of writing for scholarly publication from a critical perspective.

To submit your proposal, please use the online proposal submission form. Proposals must include both an abstract (limited to 300 words, including references) and a proposal summary (50 words).

Proposals must be received by 23:59:59 on November 15, 2010 (Taipei Time; GMT+08:00). Proposals will be peer reviewed by a panel of experts. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by the end of December 2010.
