Making Your Writing Course Move
We invite conference proposals for the University of Connecticut First-Year Writing Program’s Conference on the Teaching of Writing. Proposal submissions are due closed and Registration is open. Please register by Monday, April 6. Our theme this year is Making Your Writing Course Move, with keynote speaker Jenae Cohn of Stanford University; we invite proposals that engage this theme.
First-Year Writing at the University of Connecticut is at the end of a multi-year redesign of our curriculum based on recent research on multimodal composing, accessibility, and digital literacies. As our program, and Rhetoric and Composition in general, has experienced a digital turn, we must also consider the ways digital writing still engages bodies and the role bodies, norms about embodiment, and bodily literacies have in composition in all modes.
The 2020 Conference on the Teaching of Writing will take place at the University of Connecticut’s Hartford campus on Friday, April 17, 2020. The conference will run from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM.
Tribal Land Acknowledgement
This tribal land acknowledgment has been provided by the University of Connecticut Native American Cultural Programs.
We would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the occupied territory of the Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett and Nipmuc Peoples, who have stewarded this land throughout the generations. We thank them for their strength and resilience in protecting this land, and aspire to uphold our responsibilities according to their example. Please use it!
