The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.
Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.
There is art within all forms of writing: creative, expository, persuasive. This conference seeks to blur the division between the critical and the creative. We seek submissions from a range of perspectives, including those that discuss teaching writing about art and the art inherent in the act of writing. This theme highlights the pleasure and beauty in all forms of writing, in all disciplines and concerning all topics, as well as pedagogical approaches to teaching the artistry of writing.
We invite presentations from any discipline or theoretical perspective on college writers, composition or writing pedagogy. Participants need not be current or past SUNY faculty; we welcome submissions from all faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars regardless of institutional affiliation. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
All forms of writing pedagogy
Writing as a creative process
Art in the composition classroom
Teaching creative writing
Writing about art
Teaching writing to artists
Performance-rhetoric and performance-composition
Writing across the curriculum
New media in the writing classroom
Writing and art as bridges across cultural barriers
Highlighting diverse voices in the writing classroom
