EATAW 2009 Conference: CALL for PROPOSALS and Online Submission System

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you know, the European Association for the Teaching of Academic Writing (EATAW) is a scholarly organisation and listserv that brings together those involved or interested in the teaching, tutoring, research, administration and development of academic writing in higher education in Europe. EATAW currently has some 600 members from all over the world (

The 5th biennial EATAW conference will be hosted by the Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) at Coventry University, England, and will take place from 30th June – 2nd July 2009. The conference’s aim is to share and celebrate the work of writing teachers and scholars in Europe, but also to look beyond the European context to learn about other innovations in researching and teaching student writing. The conference will also include an opportunity for members of the European Writing Centers Association (EWCA) to meet as a group. The purpose of this email is to invite you to consider attending and participating in this important conference.

The conference theme is ‘The Roles of Writing Development in Higher Education and Beyond’. To submit a proposal for a presentation, workshop, round-table, or other type of contribution to the conference, please use the web-based abstract submission system on the ‘Submit a Proposal’ page of the EATAW 2009 conference website:

The deadline for submission of proposals is 31st January 2009.

On behalf of the EATAW Board and the conference organising committee, I look forward to receiving your proposals and to seeing you at the conference!

Best wishes,



Dr. Lisa Ganobcsik-Williams
