SUNY COW: Building 21st Century Writing Programs: Literacy and Leadership in the New Millennium
full name / name of organization:
SUNY Council on Writing
Binghamton University and the SUNY Council on Writing welcome proposals for "Building 21st Century Writing Programs: Literacy and Leadership in the New Millennium," to be held March 18-19, 2011 at the Binghamton University Downtown Center.
As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, writing programs are changing: we are rethinking connections between technology and learning; reexamining assumptions about the writing process; redesigning curricula to respond to multilingual learners; reconceptualizing networks with campus writing centers, educational opportunity programs, and student support services; reimagining the relationship between organized labor and writing program administration; and reforging writing and rhetoric's place within the humanities.
The home of a newly independent writing program built to support an extraordinarily diverse student body, Binghamton University is proud to host the 2011 Conference of the SUNY Council on Writing. As we convene in New York's Southern Tier, we invite participants to share models for “Building 21st Century Writing Programs”—that is, writing programs committed to expanded conceptions of literacy, progressive institutional reform, and new directions in the humanities. We welcome proposals that consider a range of questions related to the conference theme, including:
The conference will also feature two distinguished speakers. Lynn Bloom will present “Is Freshman Composition Still a Middle-Class Enterprise? A 21st Century Update” and Kurt Spellmeyer will speak on “Forging the New Humanities.”
SUNY COW is very graduate-friendly and a great way to connect and network with area faculty and students.
