The Writing Center @ MSU's Writers Across the Curriculum Speaker Series

The Writing Center at Michigan State University is proud to present this year’s virtual speaker series, titled “Writers In the Disciplines.” Bringing together conversations about Tier II writing and writers, writing across the curriculum (WAC) and writing in the disciplines (WID) work, this series will address both pragmatic and human responses to these two questions: What does it mean to be a writer in the academy? And what support do teachers (or tutors) of writing need to empower their students?

Our next talk is “Writing Wrongs: Black Women, First Year Writing, Pedagogy, and Promise” with Dr. Michelle Bachelor Robinson. The talk will be held on Thursday, March 16th, 1:00–2:15 p.m. Eastern Time.
