The Northeast CCCC Summer Conference originally scheduled to take place at Boston University during the summer of 2020 has been moved online and will be held virtually over Zoom from July 6-7, 2021. The conference theme-- Critical Literacies in the 21st Century Classroom—remains the same.
The conference organizers are re-opening the call for proposals specifically to invite “P.S. (Postscript) Proposals” that reflect the changes we have experienced as a country and community of educators since the initial call for proposals went out. They invite proposals that address issues such as teaching reading and writing during the COVID-19 pandemic; developing and delivering online, hybrid, and distance learning writing courses; and keeping students engaged and motivated to read and write during these difficult times. P.S. Proposals might also address how the increased attention to race in our country, as well as how the political divisiveness and violence we have seen, has affected the teaching of critical literacies. P.S. Proposals should be in one of the three presentation formats sponsored by the conference (see the website) and are due April 15.
Anne Ruggles Gere will be presenting the conference keynote.
For more information and to submit a proposal please see the conference website: https://necccc.org/
We hope you will join us in July! Conference registration opens April 1.
