The keynote address will be given by Jonathan Monroe of Cornell University. He is the George Reed Professor of Writing and Rhetoric, and former director of the John S. Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines at Cornell University is the author A Poverty of Objects: The Prose Poem and the Politics of Genre (Cornell), and editor and co-author of Local Knowledges, Local Practices: Writing in the Disciplines at Cornell (Pittsburgh) and Writing and Revising the Disciplines (Cornell). Dr. Monroe will speak about the connections between writing and critical thinking in his presentation entitled "Is Critical Thinking a Liberal Art: Contemporary Poetry in (as) Higher Education." Many other WAC professionals have prepared presentations centered around our three themes of (re)defining the continuum between writing and thinking, (re)possessing the continuum of writing and thinking in the disciplines and (re)addressing the continuum of thinking and writing iterations.
There will a preconference meeting of New England Region WAC Directors<https://www.quinnipiac.edu/x4024.xml> on Friday, November 21, from 3-5 p.m. If you would like to attend this meeting, please contact Bob Smart at
