2017 MnWE Conference:

"Connecting Landscapes"

March 31-April 1, 2017 (Friday-Saturday)

Southwest Minnesota State University,

Marshall, Minnesota

Theme: Our age of globalization and virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE’s 2017 theme, Connecting Landscapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting both geographical and metaphorical landscapes

As English educators, we speak of discovering “where we stand” on issues, of being “moved” by words and images, and of using language to change others’ positions and points of view and create movement. 

How can Composition, Literature, and Creative Writing help us bridge divides, comprehend divergent perspectives, and reevaluate our own ideas?  How can reading and writing create understanding of and empathy with people coming from other landscapes?  How can language evoke and examine topographies or worldviews?
