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
