10/4: What is Writing Studies? Event

Attention English-ers! This upcoming event promises to be a very interesting conversation about the future of the Writing Studies field. Whether you are taking or teaching a composition class or have had your interest even mildly piqued by it in the past, I hope you’ll join us next Tuesday for this conversation.

What Is “Writing Studies”?

In the past, the term “Writing Studies” has been used interchangeably with “Composition/Rhetoric,” and little discussion has been devoted to exploring how Writing Studies might evolve into a field of its own.

Why has this been the case?  What are the institutional obstacles confronting Writing Studies?  What is the
promising potential that this field holds?

Please join guest speaker Derek Owens and hosts Roseanne Gatto, Sean Murray, and Tara Roeder of the St. John’s Institute for Writing Studies for this conversation.

When: Tuesday, October 4th, 6:00-7:30 pm
Where: St. John’s University, Manhattan Campus (101 Murray St.)
