    The worth of work done in a university is weighed in writing. Students write reports, assignments, papers and dissertations; faculty and researchers put out their work in journals and books. What is written is also written about. What is written forms the network and the net worth of knowledge made systematic and accessible. Writing contrarily demands attentive isolation and a steadfast reciprocal connection to the community. Writing in the university contrarily asserts and blurs distinctions between academic and creative writing, writing for experts and writing made available to non-experts. The discipline of writing is as notorious for its difficulty as its fame in the unmatched pleasure of slowly unfolding, perfectly crafted sentences. For its annual conference, the department of English at Shiv Nadar University invites engagement with the discipline of writing as it shapes academic disciplines, practice of scholarship, creative writing and writing in public discourses.

    Prof. Richard E. Miller of Rutgers University will deliver the keynote address. Prof. Miller has written extensively about the evolving shape of writing in higher education in the United States.

    Dr. Denise Comer, Director of First Year Writing at The Thompson Writing Program, Duke University will lead the conversation on academic writing pedagogies.

    Papers can be about but are not restricted to the following:

    • Academic Writing Pedagogy

    - challenges in administering writing centers, formulating courses and syllabi, teacher training, using technology, remedial writing courses, processes of writing, revision and review, effective feedback and assessment, connecting reading and writing

    • Teaching Creative Writing

    - challenges in teaching creative writing, teaching voice, the relationship between academic and creative writing, organizing syllabi, assessing performance, aspiration, practice and craft, writers on writing

    • Using Writing to Teach

    - From Archaeology to Zoology, how do disciplines other than academic writing teach writing? Making writing an effective tool in teaching undergraduates, assignments that elicit critical engagement, using creative writing assignments and projects as teaching tools

    • Who do We Write For?

    -cultures and philosophies of writing, language of expertise, writing for the public, publishing written work, the changing venues of publishing writing, publishable writing and the hand of editors, the brave new world of writing and publishing online

    • Writing in the World

    -how does a writer write in the world? Writers and public discourses, responding to crisis in writing, putting the world in words

    Conference coordinators:

    Dr. Tulika Chandra, Dr. Anannya Dasgupta, Dr. Akhil Katyal, and Prof. Sambudha Sen

    For queries, conference convener: Dr. Anannya Dasgupta ad509@snu.edu.in
