Welcome to the Web site of the Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing (CASDW). CASDW is a bilingual scholarly association dedicated to advancing the study and teaching of discourse, writing, and communication in academic and nonacademic settings—higher education, business, government, and nonprofit organizations.
For this purpose, CASDW brings together researchers, teachers, and practitioners from diverse disciplines and professions—English, Education, Engineering, Business, the Humanities, the Social Sciences, the Natural Sciences, and others—who study and teach both written and oral communication, including visual and digitally mediated communication.
CASDW members work to advance the study and teaching of writing in the belief that writing is central to democratic participation in society as well as to knowledge work in workplace, research, government, and public settings.
To learn more about our association and the work of our members, visit our "About" section, check out the news, read our constitution, review recent calls for proposals (CFPs) in our field, learn about our refereed journal The Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing, or find out more about our next conference or our past conferences.
