The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (www.cwrc.ca) has funds available to assist scholars wishing to attend the CWRC workshop planned for October 27th in Toronto at Ryerson University.


Workshop topics will include an introduction to CWRC, visualization and text analysis tools, and a gentle introduction to thinking about spatial visualization and mapping. Dr. Bethany Nowviskie of the University of Virginia will be assisting us in our consideration of the latter.

Priority for travel subsidies will be given to: emergent scholars, those participating in a CWRC project and/or presenting at the Ryerson conference, and those with limited travel funds.

Please send a brief application for support, specifying:

1)   that you are applying for support for the Ryerson workshop

2)   name, institutional position or background, institutional affiliation (or if none then a brief account of your research area and interest in the CWRC project);

3)   the project, research interest or activity that you expect participation in the workshop to advance;

4)   whether you are presenting at the Ryerson conference

5)   an estimated budget of expenses, indicating the amount of your request (accommodation information is on the conference website at http://cwrc2.blog.ryerson.ca/).

Send this information to cwrc [at] ualberta [dot] ca by August 19 for full consideration. Requests made after this date may still be considered if funds are available.

Please note that the nature of the funding means that we can assist only with workshop expenses (including travel costs and hotel costs the night before and of the workshop), not conference expenses.

Thank you to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for funding in support of the workshop.
