Writing Across the Curriculum

At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix).  While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.

The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Boundaries  can literally  be defined as  limits, limiting  factors,  borders  or barriers. The  term connotes the idea of restriction in both a physical  and ideological  sense. In social and cultural discourses, the idea of boundaries can be understood  as a metaphysical notion  to describe various ideas which are the foundations of all forms of discrimination and prejudice  based on issues such as patriarchy,  race, ethnicity,  class, sexuality, religious affiliation and other forms of classification. Examples  of such  conceptions  of boundaries  in  colonial,  postcolonial,  poststructuralist  and postmodern discourses include  the practices of stereotyping or othering.

From Center to Periphery and from Periphery to Center: An Inter-Culture exchange

During most of the 20th century, academia knowledge was circulated in the world on a path parallel with Western countries’ political and economic dominance. Western experts were sent out into the world by their native country or by international institutions to share or impose their findings on other countries in the areas of literature, linguistics and the teaching of foreign languages. This is what we might call a diffusion of knowledge from center to periphery. There were some exceptions to this Western dominance but not many.
