2014 Symposium on Composition at an HBCU

Let Our Voices Be Heard: 2014 Symposium on Composition at an HBCU

The 2014 Symposium on Writing at a Historically Black College or University is a ground-breaking event that will spotlight the voices and needs of writing program administrators, composition teachers and faculty who use writing in the classroom at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The symposium will provide professional development through workshops conducted by specialized and nationally recognized faculty and scholars.

In addition, it is the hope of the organizers that this event can engender an enduring dialogue and encourage teachers to continue collaboration on pedagogy and research relevant to teaching writing at HBCU’s, leading to future symposia and conferences.  Andrea Lunsford, author of The Everyday Writer, used at Universities around the country, will be the keynote speaker. Also Dr. Vershawn Young, author of Your Average Nigga: Performing Race, Literacy and Masculinity will be a featured presenter. Want to Attend?
