#NCPTW17 Reaching Out – Revising Writing Center Spaces and Identities
October 12-15, 2017
The Hofstra University Writing Center is hosting NCPTW 2017, Reaching Out: Revising Writing Center Spaces and Identities, a national conference that will consider the various ways writing centers connect with stakeholders on campuses, in cyberspace, and through research.
The theme “Revising Writing Center Spaces and Identities” seeks to generate inquiry, conversation, and debate about defining the spaces in which writing centers practice. There will be discussions on reciprocal relationships between the identities of the centers, tutors, and the writers they support.
The conference keynote speakers are Lauren Fitzgerald and Melissa Ianetta, authors of The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors: Practice and Research. Ianetta is director of the Writing Center and Professor of English at the University of Delaware and incoming editor of College English. Fitzgerald is director of the Wilf Campus Writing Center and professor of English and chair of the Department of English at Yeshiva University.
