Second Call for Proposals:
Writing Research Across Borders
2008 Santa Barbara Conference on Writing Research
University of California Santa Barbara
February 22-24, 2008

The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education and the Writing Programs at the
University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of
California, Davis invite proposals for their interdisciplinary
conference, « Writing Research Across Borders, » to be held February
22-24, 2008 in Santa Barbara, California.

This is an exciting time where research on writing is having many
births, rebirths, and growing spurts in many nations and with foci on
many levels of schooling and development across the lifespan. At the
2008 Santa Barbara Conference on Writing Research we hope to foster
dialogues across different writing research traditions, located in
different national, disciplinary, and programmatic venues. We have
invited a premier panel of plenary and featured speakers to represent
the diversity of writing research in the world and to open the door for
further broad participation from researchers of all nations interested
in all age levels, institutional settings, and disciplinary approaches.

This conference follows on the successes of the 2002 and 2005 Santa
Barbara Conferences on Writing Research, which had the themes of
« Writing as A Human Activity » and « Writing Research in the Making. »
Further information about our upcoming conference is available at Information about the 2005
conference is available at

We invite proposals for panels, roundtables, and individual
presentations that discuss works in progress, completed research, and
reflections on how writing research is conceived, proposed, funded,
carried out, published, and responded to. Conference proposals should
be submitted by May 1, 2007. Proposals should be under 300 words and in
English (for a fuller statement on language diversity at our
conference, please see ). Please send
proposals via email (as a Microsoft Word attachment or in the email
body) to or send paper copies to the address

In addition, through the generosity of the Writing Program of the
University of California at Davis and Chris Thaiss, the Clark Kerr
Professor of Writing at UC Davis, we are able to offer several
fellowships to help support travel expenses for speakers. Fellowships
will be awarded based on financial need and proposal quality. If you
would like to apply for a fellowship, please submit a separate
fellowship application letter explaining your need for funding and how
the fellowship would fit with any other potential sources of funding
available to you.

If you have questions about the fellowship application letter or other
aspects of the submission process, please feel free to contact Dr.
Charles Bazerman or Suzie Null, the Writing Research Across Borders
Conference Coordinators. Both can be reached at
