CWPA 2014, Normal, Illinois: Call for Proposals


Attached is the Call for Proposals for the CWPA 2014 summer conference, hosted this year by Illinois State University and held in Normal, Illinois from July 17-20, with the workshop held from July 13-16 and the institutes to be held on the 17th (the conference begins in the evening, with the first plenary session). More information about the conference, the workshop, and the institutes is forthcoming; however, I wanted to get the CFP out because, as you'll notice, the submission deadline is earlier this year: final submissions are due in mid-March so that (a) proposers might apply for travel funding earlier, (b) presenters might plan their summer travel schedules around the conference, and (c) the program organizers avoid the crunch of what is finals week in many institutions.

Also new this year: please note that nobody may appear on the program in more than two sessions, in any capacity. We would like as wide a range of presenters as possible.

Please contact me with questions ( For questions about Mentoring Project sessions, please contact Joe Janangelo (

This should be a great conference--thanks in advance for your submissions!
