    Please join the RMWCA for a post-conference conversation with this year’s IWCA-NCPTW keynote speaker, Hannah Telling!

    Hannah, an undergraduate peer tutor at Montana State University, is one of the Rocky Mountain region’s own. This webinar will give participants a chance to hear Hannah talk about her research using gesture drawings to investigate the embodiment of participation in writing centers. Hannah will share conclusions and questions that emerged from her work, discuss her experience as an undergraduate researcher, and contribute to an open discussion of art, power, and participation in the writing center. 

    If you are/were not able to attend the conference in Columbus or are simply interested in getting a chance to talk with Hannah about her work, please join us. Tutors/Consultants are especially encouraged to participate in this event. In addition to celebrating the work of this young scholar, we hope to invite and encourage other tutor-scholars in our region to add their voices to ongoing conversations in the field.

    For a description of her keynote address and more information about Hannah, please visit the keynote webpage.

    "Unmaking Gringo-Centers"
    (Writing Center Journal 36.1, 2017)

    "The article focuses on the topics of race and power and how they have been addressed in writing center scholarship. It asks the writing center community to listen, well and deeply, to how members have discussed and pursued anti-racist agendas. The article points to the emergence and presence of a white/black race paradigm. It is argued that this paradigm both limits what a writing center might do and undercuts the efficacy of anti-racist agendas. A method of listening is deployed in multiple ways to substantiate an argument that while pockets of progressive politics have taken place in writing center scholarship, the failure to attend to the conditions experienced by and the needs and interests of other racial/ethnic groups such as Mexican American student writers is a limitation to writing centers' democratic desires. The article brings attention to the plight of Mexican Americans, both local and global, and moves to discuss what might be afforded in accounting for Mexican American students within writing center conversations on race and power."
