Roundtable Discussants Needed - WPA 2006

Are FYC courses your school taught primarily by faculty (“regular” and/or temporary)? If so, I ask you to consider participating in a roundtable discussion I’m proposing for WPA 2006.

WPA scholarship tends to ignore, I believe, those of us in institutions where FYC courses are staffed primarily, if not exclusively, by faculty. I’m interested in widening our profession’s conception of WPA work and identity by looking at the locations in which we work and the roles place, location, and culture play in our work. If your FYC courses are staffed primarily by a relatively stable cadre of faculty on some kind of continuing appointment and would like to participate in this roundtable discussion, please email me at sduffey@georgiasouthern.edu. Include a brief description of your staff, the kind of institution you work at, and perhaps a question or two you think your position raises about WPA theory, practice, or scholarship. I’ll put together a group whose “locations” might be expected to bring up a diversity of issues.
