Call for Proposals

The 12th Symposium on Second Language Writing
"L2 Writing in the Global Context: Represented, Underrepresented, and Unrepresented Voices"
October 17-21, 2013
山东大学, 济南, 中国 Shandong University, Jinan, China

The 2013 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 encourage 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 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 bring underrepresented or unrepresented voices to the forefront.

To submit your proposal, please use the online proposal submission form. Proposals must include both a 50-word summary and a 500-word abstract (including references). When submitting your proposal, you may view either the Chinese or English language version of the submission form.

Proposals must be received by 23:59:59 EST on July 1, 2013 (Eastern Daylight Time; UTC-0400). Proposals will be peer reviewed by a panel of experts. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by July 30, 2013.
