  • Peer review conference proposals on Canvas: each of you have 2 peer reviews to do. Please read the CFP for the conference and offer helpful feedback right in Canvas’s editing system. Spend less time correcting grammar and punctuation than in responding conceptually. Does the proposal pick up the language of the conference theme? If so, does the proposal successfully weave the theme with its aims? If not, does the proposal take up a topic that fits well generally within the confines of this conference’s disciplinary borders? Offer any helpful advice you have.

Conference proposals due on Canvas by May 7 at midnight.
