ATTW 2023

What is the conference theme?

The 2023 theme is “On Celebration and Compliance, Reflection and Resistance.” This year’s ATTW conference marks the 25th annual meeting of the Association of Teachers of Technical Communication and the 50th anniversary of the Association itself. As such, it offers us time and space for reflection (on our successes, progress, and promise; on our shortcomings and unmet goals and inadequacies), renewal (of our commitments and communities), and revision (of our practices and purposes). In other words, it is a time to honor and reconcile our histories and amplify counterhistories as well as (re)imagine and (re)build our futures. We believe that it is only as our inheritances interface with our current goals that we can co-create projects “adequate to the complexity” of our world(s) (Royster 2000). See the full CFP for more detail.

How is ATTW working to make the conference accessible?

ATTW is actively striving to be as accessible as possible to all stakeholders. When you access the conference program, you’ll note that session titles are hyperlinked to open-access folders. We strongly encourage presenters to make robust use of these session folders. Adding presentations, scripts, and/or other resources to the folders before sessions makes the presentations more accessible to ATTW conference registrants, including those who might not have been able to attend a session, and also to our ASL and CART providers, who in turn increase accessibility for all attendees.

To further support presenters in meeting their accessibility goals, Dr. Kerry Banazek (New Mexico State University) will host an accessibility workshop the week before the conference: Thursday, June 1 @ 1:00p [EST] via Zoom (with invitations sent to presenters nearer that date). Additionally, we thank Sherena Huntsman and Lauren Cagle for sharing these User Guides: Making Digital Documents Accessible.

I’m presenting. How can I support accessibility?

Add your materials to the session folders before your session! Include materials like presentations, scripts, and other resources. These materials will help all registrants including those who might not be able to attend your session, and also our ASL and CART providers, who in turn increase accessibility for all attendees.
