FW: Call for Proposals for the UK's 15th biennial Writing Development in Higher Education (WDHE) Conference


I am pleased to announce that the 15th biennial Writing Development in Higher Education (WDHE) Conference will be hosted by the Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) at Coventry University, England from Wednesday 9th July to Friday 11th July 2014.

The WDHE Network’s listserv and biennial conference have been integral to charting the development of Academic Writing pedagogy and theory in UK universities, and this year’s conference will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Founding of the WDHE Network. The conference will provide an important opportunity to reflect on how and why the field of Academic Writing has grown, and to consider ‘Future Directions in Academic Writing’.

Longstanding WDHE Network colleagues as well as those who are new to Academic Writing teaching and research are welcome, as the conference is open to all who have an interest in Academic Writing development.

Please see the attached Call for Proposals—the deadline to submit your proposal is 10th March 2014.  The conference website provides further details: http://www.coventry.ac.uk/events/WDHE2014/.

My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you in Coventry in July!

Best wishes,
