CFP CCCC International Researchers Consortium Workshop 2022 (USA)

ConferencesCall for papers: International Researchers Consortium Workshop, Conference on College Composition and Communication, March 9-12, 2022, Chicago, IL (or online if need be). Deadline: proposal, May 25, 2021; draft text: December 2021.

The International Researchers Consortium is working on a proposal for a 14th annual day-long international research workshop, at the 2022 College Conference on Composition and Communication (CCCC) conference located in the U.S. Though your research is not required to connect to conference themes, this year’s theme is diversity, equity, and linguistic justice.

Organizers invite proposals for up to 24 researcher-participant roles, focused on studies that promote insights into international research and negotiation of conditions beyond national contexts for writing in higher education around the world. By research, they mean a project with a focused research question, an identified methodology (qualitative, quantitative, ethnographic, historical, discourse analysis, corpus, etc.), and the collection of data in some form. This research can be at any stage and does not need to be final. The goal would be to provide a draft text about the research by the end of December 2021, to read the other workshop facilitators’ texts before attending the CCCC conference, and to participate in the day-long workshop by leading a discussion about your own project and participating in discussions of a subset of others’ projects.

CFP IADA 2021: Practices of Dialogue, Dialogues in Practice (Canada but Online)

Conferences

Call for papers: Practices of Dialogue, Dialogues in Practice, November 1-5, 2021, University of Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada (but online). Deadline: May 15, 2021.

Many fields of research devote themselves to the study of dialogue, whether in linguistics, philosophy, ethics, communication, cultural anthropology, cognitive psychology, sociology, argumentation, pragmatics and logic, among others. Engaging in dialogue sometimes consists in representing, describing and informing others of the existence of something – either a thing in the world, its characteristics, or our subjective mental states. In dialogue, though, more is always occurring or, to say it otherwise, new reality is conjured up in dialogue: values can be shared or confronted, identities are constituted or altered, relations are woven, knowledge is coproduced, errors become common, shared meaning is created and communities are built. But they can also be damaged, sometimes (but not always) beyond repair. One way to grasp what takes place through dialogue in addition to information and representation is to understand dialogue through the lens of practice: dialogue is a set of practices that have meaning beyond their descriptive function, and that are used and surrounded by yet other meaningful practices. Defects and satisfying results can only be considered if we look at practices, in which we can fully grasp our experiences of dialogue.

Studies on dialogue have thus revealed how a practice perspective accounts for both the productivity and creativity that takes place in dialogue, as well as the practical and concrete consequences of dialogue. Others have focused on the conditions, the problems, limits and failures in dialogue, with the aim to develop a better set of practices of/in dialogue. For this conference, organizers invite contributors to look at the manifold connections between dialogue and practice(s).

CFP NAMLE: Media Literacy & Social Justice (Online)

ConferencesCall for Proposals, National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE): Media Literacy and Social Justice, Online,  July 16 – 18, 2021. Deadline: March 14, 2021.

CFP NAMLE 2021

Media literacy has many connections with social justice; in fact, many would say that media literacy is social justice. Specifically, media literacy helps us to understand the relationships between media, information, and power; this is often referred to as critical media literacy. The process of developing media literacy skills helps us to decipher what a piece of media wants you to believe and why, who benefits from you believing it, whose perspectives are valued in mainstream media, whose perspectives are marginalized or missing, and how we might elevate them. It helps us to unpack stereotypes and circulate ideas about various groups. Media literacy promotes inquiry into the effects that propaganda and mis/dis-information have on our politics and how they perpetuate injustices against marginalized groups, the environment, and our sociopolitical climate. In sum, media literacy helps us to understand issues of systemic inequity and who benefits from their maintenance, while also inspiring action, critical change, and the democratization of media industries. Given all of these connections, NAMLE finds it extremely salient to organize a conference around the topic of Media Literacy + Social Justice.

Proposals will be given special consideration if they (1) articulate concrete connections to social justice, and (2) offer a fresh point of view of an issue within the field of media literacy education.

CFP GLOCAL COMELA 2021 (Greece)

ConferencesCall For Abstracts: The Global Council on Anthropological Linguistics (GLOCAL) Conference on Europe and Mediterranean Linguistic Anthropology (COMELA) 2021, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece July 21-24, 2021. Deadline:  March 10, 2021.

Theme – Bounded Languages … Unbounded / Περιορισμένες Γλώσσες … Απεριόριστες, a theme highly pertinent to Europe and Mediterranean at the current time, encapsulates the ongoing struggle throughout Mediterranean and European regions. As the continuous tension between demarcation, and the concurrent legitimization, of languages, language ideologies, and language identities, enters an era where new modes of interactivity require language communities to take on roles superordinate to the past, flexible citizenship now operates within, and not only across, language communities, to unbind languages, and to create new boundaries, unlike those ever seen throughout history.

Over 450 scholars globally will gather to present papers and to engage in progressive discussion on the Linguistic Anthropology, Language and Society, Sociolinguistics, and related fields of Europe and Mediterranean. The GLOCAL COMELA is fully Non-Profit, assisting scholars in impeded economic positions, who require funding to access the COMELA Conference, and who display strong ability in their work. GLOCAL COMELA proceedings are SCOPUS / ISI (AHCI / SSCI / CPCi) indexed and contribute to ranked and cited publications for all those accepted to present. The GLOCAL COMELA publishes papers presented at the GLOCAL COMELA 2021 in Top Tier Journal Publication Special Issues.

CFP World Communication Association 2021

Conferences

Call for Papers: Communicating for Our Future, World Communication Association, virtual, 12-18 July 2021. Deadline: March 1, 2021.

The theme will be Communicating for Our Future: As our world struggles with Covid-19, the importance of communication, in its myriad forms, cannot be understated. Let’s use the 2021 conference as an opportunity to share similar experiences and come together as a community.

Virtual Conference: The 2021 conference has been reimagined to be an entirely virtual conference. The WCA recognizes that Covid-19 continues to affect all of us, and we are unable to predict what effects, if any there will be in July 2021. While we know many will want to attend a conference in person, this is not possible for many reasons. Thus, we will instead be convening the WCA conference virtually.

Synchronous or asynchronous: The Association is working to facilitate a mixture of both synchronous and asynchronous presentations. More information on presentations of papers will be forthcoming on the WCA website.
