RE: 9/25

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/her/hers) on

Hey all–

On Tuesday, we’ll be talking about gender and feminism. Think about what stuff you’ve already been taught–implicitly and explicitly–about how to *do* your own gender: what stuff you’re supposed to like, how to talk/walk/dress/do yr hair, what gender role models you’ve had, any examples of how you’ve altered your behavior/appearance to *do* your gender in a way that felt more authentic to you, etc.

We’ll begin with a quick freewrite and then chat about these reflections in our writing groups to try to develop an understanding of gender collectively. This will provide a framework for our readings going forward, most of which deal with gender either overtly or subtly.

Hey all–

Just writing to say HELLO!

This week, you’ll be reading one of my all-time favorite articles in writing studies: “When the First Voice You Hear is Not Your Own” by Jacqueline Jones Royster. It’s a bit more difficult than some of our other pieces so far, so really take your time with it, write on it, pull out quotes you like, slow down. If you’re not able to get a thorough grasp on it by Thursday, that’s OK.

Reading “academic” articles isn’t supposed to be easy; they’re meant to think hard and deep about something really specific. Give yourself permission to be a little confused, if necessary.

We’ll talk about this, gender, feminism, and safe(r) spaces on Thursday!

F2F 9/13 Plan

Posted by Andréa Stella (she/her/hers) on

Hi all,

Heads up for this week’s schedule: we’ll only be meeting in my (Andréa’s) class because Jesse has a scheduling conflict in the afternoon.  So I will see all your smiling faces at 11am on Thursday morning!

Don’t forget make an introductory video and upload it in Weekly Forums “Introductory Videeeeooooossss”

Lastly, for those of you paying for assignments in other classes — if you’re in a course that’s designated an OER, there should be no cost to you, including assignments.  Unfortunately most classes that are charging for assignments aren’t actually OER courses, but send me syllabi anyway and I’ll forward them to the appropriate administrator to see if something can be done.

See you Thursday!
