Conference on College Composition & Communication Invites Applications for Research Initiative

The Conference on College Composition & Communication is inviting applications for its 2021-22 Research Initiative and seeks proposals aimed at investigating key challenges that face literacy, communication, rhetoric, and writing instructors and administrators in their classrooms and programs.

Proposals should directly address the impact the proposed research might have on disciplinary and public conversations around these topics and must also convey results in at least two final products: one addressed to a scholarly audience of researchers and teachers in the field and one for a more public audience. Grants may be requested for up to $10,000.

This year’s research topics are focused on persistent gaps in research. To that end, the CCCC seeks evidence that supports new and revised position statements related to these issues, particularly evidence that can be made available to and inform public stakeholders outside of academic audiences. Other topics of interest include providing a clearer understanding of the implications of class size; the grading of diverse learners in classrooms that enact students’ right to their own languages; assessing students’ transfer of knowledge from dual-credit programs; working with diverse learners in writing and communication programs (e.g., neurodiversity, linguistic diversity, economic diversity, sociocultural diversity); the centering of writing and communication research in two-year colleges; and developing and engaging literacy in diverse contexts (e.g., K–12 classrooms, workplaces, churches, bars, prisons, sporting events, courts) and navigating the relationship between these contexts.

To be eligible, principal investigators must be a member of CCCC at the time of application.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previous awardees, see the CCCC website.

Deadline: September 1, 2021
