Responsivity: Defining, Cultivating, Enacting

The 2014 Watson Conference invites explorations of what it means for teacher/scholars of rhetoric and composition to be responsive to communities both within and beyond the academy.

Specifically, the 2014 Watson Conference asks participants to explore what it means to be responsive in a variety of contexts:

  • in our scholarship and teaching
  • in the ways we broaden and/or sustain our engagement with diverse partnerships
  • in the ways we work to garner the material conditions that undergird these efforts

In exploring these, this conference will pursue ways to articulate effective rhetorics of responsivity and shape our field’s discussions of writing and a writing citizenry.
