By April 15, 2013Outreach and Events

200px-UIC_Wordmark.svgOn Friday, April 26 the University of Illinois-Chicago is hosting Composition Matters, a symposium with a lineup of composition scholars so great it rivals the ’95-’96 Bulls roster.  Furthermore, it’s completely free and open to the public: you only have to register in advance.  Email grey.robin2[at]gmail.com to register.

Some names that particularly stick out for me include Gerald Graff of They Say/I Say fame, portfolio and assessment expert Kathleen Blake Yancey, and Bruce Horner, whose work on the politics of English language education is very interesting.  Of course, this is only a sampling.  Check out the flyer below, and don’t forget to register!

Here’s a PDF copy of the flyer.
