CASDW, first established in the early 1980s, continues to serve as the primary Canadian vehicle for scholarly conversation about the study and teaching of discourse and writing in academic and non-academic settings. Members meet and maintain contact with other scholars interested in discourse and writing studies, share ideas, explore possibilities for interdisciplinary and collaborative research, and stay up to date on relevant events and resources. Yearly membership averages over 100 individuals, students, and institutions combined. As a CASDW member, you can develop networking contacts with other colleagues in the field of discourse and writing studies, and:

  • explore possibilities for interdisciplinary and collaborative research;
  • present your research in a highly collegial atmosphere at our conferences;
  • receive an automatic subscription to our peer-reviewed journal, the Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing;
  • propose your work for publication in the Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing

As a CASDW member you can tap into a rich network of academic and organizational resources worldwide and—when available—gain access to government travel grants used toward holding CASDW conferences, and information on other government funding and grant possibilities.
