Good things tend to happen when we step out of our comfort zones and explore new spaces, whether these are physical/intellectual spaces within our colleges and universities or outside its walls—in communities, cyberspace, and more. For that matter, writing studies has a history of “road tripping” to other scholarly spaces—for example, cognitive and developmental sciences, social sciences, technology studies, management and business, economics…the list goes on. Sometimes we bring knowledge to these other spaces, as when we work on writing in the disciplines; perhaps more frequently, we find that the new perspectives we gain from our “road trips” help us to explore our own disciplines in new and exciting ways. For 2020 in Reno, I’d like us to explore what happens when we step outside of our more comfortable scholarly and physical spaces—when we take a “road trip.”
Proposal submissions are closed, but registration for the conference, workshop, and institutes is OPEN!
