AND RESEARCH CONFERENCE
This semester, the University Writing Program and Gelman Library will host the second University Writing and Research Conference, which will be held February 28 and March 1on the Mount Vernon campus. At this event, University Writing (UW1020) students from Fall 2012 who have been nominated by a faculty member will share their research and writing experiences with an audience comprised of fellow students, faculty, librarians, and friends.
Writing is a social act: Audiences shape writing and, in turn, writing shapes the perceptions and viewpoints of audiences. The mid-semester conference is an opportunity for current UW20 students to see the work that their peers produced in classes last fall at the moment when the current students begin working on their own research projects. The conference is also a place for students from the fall to receive useful, sometimes eye-opening feedback on their own work.
SPONSORSHIP: The Spring 2013 University Writing and Research Conference was organized by the First-Year Writing Faculty of the University Writing Program.
