Conference on College Composition & Communication invites applications for 2022–2023 Research Initiative

The Conference on College Composition & Communication is inviting applications for its 2022–2023 Research Initiative.

The program seeks proposals to investigate key challenges faced by literacy, communication, rhetoric, and writing instructors and administrators in their classrooms and programs. The initiative also asks recipients to address the impact their research might have on these conversations, conveying the implications of their work in at least two final products: one that is addressed to a scholarly audience of researchers and teachers in the field and one that is addressed to a specifically identified more public audience. Proposals may request up to $10,000.

Particular topics and areas of interest are those that advance the mission and vision of CCCC, which include but are not limited to the following broad areas: research that produces knowledge about language, literacy, communication, rhetoric, and the teaching, assessment, and technologies of writing at the postsecondary level and beyond; social, racial, and linguistic justice and counterstory as research method and genre in approaches to instruction in rhetoric, language, and literacy; writing in organizations, communities, and/or cultures; transfer of writing ability across contexts; disciplinarity of writing studies and composition, including critical praxis of the discipline’s growth, development of teachers or researchers, and professionalization or mentoring of undergraduate or graduate students joining the discipline; historiography; assessment of writing and literacy; development of writers or writing abilities; and material and working conditions for writing instruction and their influence on teaching and learning.

The CCCC invites proposals for research that employ diverse perspectives and methodologies, including historical, archival, rhetorical, qualitative, quantitative, ethnographic, and textual.

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, 2022
