The CWPA Officers and Executive Board wish you the best in these challenging times. Stay safe.
As of July 1, Dr. Susan Thomas of the University of Sydney, Australia, has been elected Vice-President of CWPA!
Seth Kahn and Darci Thoune, Co-Chairs of the CWPA Labor Committee, have aggregated helpful resources pertaining to labor issues in the time of COVID-19.
We acknowledge the insufficiency of any organizational statement unto itself, and that such a statement is only the first step toward meaningful action. However, we feel it is important to explicitly affirm our commitment to an equitable society, antiracist writing programs, and our own organizational self-evaluation and growth.
Because of increased job responsibilities at her home institution, current Vice President Paula Patch has found it necessary to step down. We are very thankful for the time she was able to give CWPA. Luckily, two outstanding scholars and leaders have agreed to have their names put forward for a special election: Susan Thomas (University of Sydney) and Tracy Morse (East Carolina University). Please read their statements and bios below.
