Are FYC courses your school taught primarily by faculty (â€œregularâ€ and/or temporary)? If so, I ask you to consider participating in a roundtable discussion Iâ€™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. Iâ€™m interested in widening our professionâ€™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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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. Iâ€™ll put together a group whose â€œlocationsâ€ might be expected to bring up a diversity of issues.
