    Dear Writing Across the Curriculum colleagues,

    On behalf of the hosting committee, welcome to the University of Minnesota and to your conference! I am happy to report that we have succeeded in luring WAC colleagues from all over the United States and from such far-flung locations as Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands to join us for three days of mind-opening addresses, provocative discussions, and general merry-making.

    For more than two decades, the biennial WAC Conference has sustained its place as the primary academic conference dedicated to Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing in the Disciplines practice, research, and theory. When the WAC conference was founded by Clemson University in 1993, it provided a venue for discussion of such practical matters as conducting instructional consultations and developing institutional initiatives. Now, 21 years later, amidst rapidly-changing literacy and pedagogic practices, we take up the newly-practical topics of assessing multimodal and multilingual literacy, ensuring transferability between genres, and teaching with writing in MOOCs and flipped classrooms.

    Heres a fast-motion preview of the conference we have planned (full details are contained in this booklet): after a round of stimulating pre-conference workshops (held in newly-constructed active learning classrooms), New Literacy scholars Mary Kalantzis and Bill Cope will challenge you to consider what counts (and what doesnt count) as academic writing in the age of multimodality. From there, youll participate in a diverse array of tempting concurrent sessions before locomoting yourself to a delicious reception at the Weisman Art Museum. The next day well treat you to an unusually-formatted address in which important scholars will be confronted with programmatic challenges and asked to think aloud in real time about recommended reactions and strategies. That night, youll roll across the river for dinner and a show at the acclaimed Guthrie Theater and will wake the next morning to even more interesting discussions before you sit down to Saturdays Action Lunch. There, youll have a chance to sift through the discussions youve been having and to confer with colleagues about ways of acting on your new insights. Finally, suitcases in hand, some of you will travel from the Commons Hotel to the airport on the new light rail train on its first day of operation.

    Were glad youre here!
