Using Art to Elucidate Social Scientific Theories and Concepts

Date: Thursday, May 4
Time: 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library

Leader: Darlene Drummond

Registration required, please go to this page to sign up.

Narratives are theoretical vehicles in their own right that help make sense of what’s happening around us by politicizing personal experiences to mobilize resources for social change. This session will focus on using research and/or writing exercises grounded in creative analytic practices such as evocative autoethnography and poetry to help students understand key course theories and concepts. Lunch will be served.

The Pleasures of Writing?

Date: Tuesday, May 9
Time: 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library

Leaders: Doyin Ogunfeyimi, Megan McIntyre

Registration required, please go to this page to sign up.

What might we do in the classroom, in assignment sequences, or in workshops that works against student pleasure, curiosity, or gratification in the writing classroom? How could we re-envision aspects of our courses to help promote this? What does the scholarship say about this? Lunch will be served.

First-year Seminar Faculty Workshop

Date: Wednesday, May 31, 2017
Time: 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
Location: DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library

Registration required, please go to this page to sign up.

While this small-group workshop will address issues common to all first-year seminar faculty, it will be customized to consider in particular those issues that are most relevant to participants' upcoming seminars. Our discussions might therefore include matters like assignment design, responding to student papers, designing research instruction, incorporating peer review into the writing classroom, or any other matter of interest to the participants. Although this workshop is designed for faculty new to the FYS program, experienced faculty are also welcome, in particular faculty offering a new version of a seminar, or coming back after a few years not teaching a seminar. Lunch will be served. Sponsored by the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric.
