Distinguished Lecturer: Dr. Emily K. Suh

Dr. Emily K. Suh, Associate Professor and English Language Arts/Reading Coordinator at Texas State University, presents, "Leveraging Literacy in Writing Studies: A Raciolinguistic Justice Framework for Scholarship and Practice."

About the Speaker: Dr. Suh promotes justice-oriented approaches that amplify the intersections of students' identities, cultures, and literacy practices. She has published in Community College Journal of Research and Practice; Radical Teacher; Teaching English in the Two-Year College; Journal of College Reading and Learning; and the Journal of Access, Retention, and Inclusion in Higher Education.

About the Talk: Postsecondary writing instruction and scholarship embrace racial literacy or other critical consciousness lenses as essential to supporting the nation's increasingly diverse undergraduate student body. Given the ever-present - and growing - need to address reading in the writing classroom, this talk, drawing on student and faculty data from multiple studies, explores a Raciolinguistic Justice framework for developing students' critical racial consciousness and illuminates the benefits of explicit reading instruction with a particular focus on open-access contexts.

Time and Place: Thursday, April 18th, 3:30-5:30pm, LNCO 1010. Reception to follow.


Put theory into action and attend Dr. Suh's workshop: Leveraging Metacognitive Practices of Students' Literacy Goals.
