This is the second CNY Humanities Corridor event by the Composition, Labor & Embodiment Working Group on supporting multilingual student writers in the U.S. university.
Open to administrators, program directors, and instructors interested in creating more linguistically and culturally inclusive programs and practices for multilingual writers, this interactive workshop will use case studies to focus on practical strategies for addressing these critical questions at our respective institutions:
Participants will learn approaches for investigating linguistic diversity on their own campuses, mapping available campus support for multilingual writers, and identifying avenues for developing a campus-wide, shared sense of responsibility for linguistic inclusion and educating students from all backgrounds.
Gail Shuck is Professor of English at Boise State University, where she has directed English Language Support Programs since 2001. Her research focuses on language ideologies, language identities, and linguistically inclusive writing program administration. She is currently editing a collection with Kay Losey on plurilingualism in U.S. writing classrooms.
Angela Dadak is the second language writing specialist for the Writing Studies Program at American University in Washington, DC. She teaches first year writing courses to linguistically diverse undergraduates, supports writing faculty in their work with multilingual writers, and participates in university-wide initiatives related to multilingual students.
This event is supported by Kate Navickas and Michelle Cox of the Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines.
