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.

Many of us structure syllabi according to a familiar read-discuss-write a paper rhythm, a sequence that allows students to further explore ideas independently and in depth. But as natural and inevitable as this process seems, what really comes of the hours we all invest in the writing and grading of literary analysis papers?

A recent trend has seen many writers create literary narratives that confront twentieth-century events while inscribing into that past the authors’ contemporary selves (e.g.: Binet 2009; Jablonka 2012; Foenkinos 2014). These biographical meta-narratives seem dictated by the impossibility to construct one’s own subjectivity without facing the very notions of civilization and humanity that our violent pasts have reconfigured.
