Writing Professor Speaks
In March 2010, Susanna Engbers, Chair of Liberal Arts and Sciences, presented a paper at the annual Conference on College Composition and Communication, the largest national conference for teachers of rhetoric and composition. The paper, co-presented with her English-professor husband Chad, was titled ‚??Couples in Collaboration: Mixing and Remixing our Pedagogies.‚?Ě It addressed the multiple ways in which collaborations between ‚??intimate academics‚?Ě (i.e., academic couples, married or otherwise) can offer a kind of gold standard for other academic collaborations.
Susanna is also looking forward to the publication of her article, entitled ‚?? 'What‚??s My Angle Here?‚?? An Exercise in Invention,‚?? ‚?Ě which offers a practical classroom strategy for helping students to develop effective thesis statements.
