Excited to present my work on equity in peer review at the Council of Writing Program Administrators in Knoxville, Tennessee (July 20-23). The working title of my presentation is “I didn’t want to keep asking, Do you know what I mean? Do you get it?”: Peer review as Linguistic and Cultural Contact Zone.


Check out my latest research project with University of Michigan’s Sweetland Center for Writing. Our article, “Mutual Adjustments: Learning From and Responding to Transfer Student Writers,” appears in the March 2017 edition of College English.


I’m honored to be presenting my research on linguistic and cultural diversity in peer review at the CCCC Convention in Portland, Oregon (March 15-18, 2017). My presentation, “‘Feedback Looks Different’: Ideologies of Difference in Peer Response Groups at an Elite, Predominantly White Institution” is part of a panel entitled, Haunted by (Linguistic) Difference: Perceptions of Authority in the Classroom and Writing Center. Join us Friday, March 17, 11 am.

 Anti-racist writing pedagogy is a major part of my research agenda. I was very happy to be invited to share this work at the University of Michigan Tutor Summit. My talk “The Anti-racist Peer Tutor: Tracing Unconscious Bias in Conversations about Writing,” drew connections between racism and forms of linguistic discrimination that are always present to some degree in all interactions, but are of special concern when people interact about writing and language.
