From the Margins to the Center: Reevaluating “Tradition” in English Studies

Graduate Student Symposium ft. keynote by Ariana Brown

February 22, 2020

University of Texas at San Antonio

 

“Enslaved Black folk couldn’t lift shackled feet,

so instead they shuffled

& invented the cumbia—

& you can’t tell me there aren’t many ways to survive,

to remember the dead,

to make a freedom where there isn’t one.”

Excerpt from Ariana Brown, “Cumbia,” published in the Acentos Review, 2019

This roundtable will provide a forum for participants to discuss and analyze their experiences and offer suggestions for teaching the multi-major professional writing course, more commonly referred to as simply “business writing” or “professional writing.” We especially welcome presentations that speak to and offer strategies targeting one of our three major concerns with the course: its decontextualized state, its reliance on non-neutral codes of professionalism, and the lack of pedagogical support often given to its instructors.

The role of education in shaping and impacting the world has never been contested and will certainly be held as an unwavering belief as long as there is life on earth. However, human capacity to provide the appropriate education that would meet the needs of every generation has always been doubtful. Countries across the globe have invested large amounts of money on reforms that were intended to improve education, yet the results have often been unsatisfactory.

This is a call for essays and interviews for a book titled “Alternative Careers for the Stage,” a new book in the "PERFORM: Succeeding as a Creative Professional" series, which will explore possibilities for making use of a theatre education.

To be published by Focal Press, an imprint of Taylor & Francis

Contributors to this book will share their perspectives on professions and theatrical work available to individuals educated in theatre, closely examining career paths that fall outside of the traditional acting, directing, designing, and stage-managing paths. I am particularly interested in inclusion & diversity and the book will have an international perspective.
