CATTW/ACPRTS invites proposals for its 2003 conference at Dalhousie University in Halifax. The CATTW/ACPRTS conference will be part of the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences Federation of Canada. The deadline for proposals is 22 September, 2002.
In political, socio-economic, scientific, and technological contexts and, more generally, in all workplace domains, writers strive to formalize, shape, and provide a clear, succinct style for their discourses. Workplace discourse often originates in contexts that are somewhat informal and that reflect various tensions, oppositions, and divergent interests. CATTW/ACPRTS welcomes proposals that discuss these matters and other topics relevant to the practice and teaching of technical, professional, and scientific writing. Proposals should foreground the research methods and research context on which the paper is based, and should include the relevant references to the literature. We also welcome proposals on similar topics for round-tables, workshops, and informal sessions. While such proposals need not necessarily reflect formal research, they should relate to current conversations in the field and should encourage the exchange of ideas and experiences among participants.
Presenters and participants in all conference forums must be members of CATTW/ ACPRTS. For membership information, please go to http://www.uwinnipeg.ca/~agoldric/CATTW
In keeping with the themes announced by the Federation, the CATTW/ACPRTS conference organizing committee invites scholars in technical, professional, and scientific writing, in applied linguistics, in rhetoric, and in other language-related disciplines.
