Composing Live(s): Writing the Self and the Other within the Disciplines

March 25, 2011, 9:00-4:00
Oxford, Ohio

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." --- Lord Byron

Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.
