Event description

Description

Based on a conversation at a New England Rhetoric and Composition Consortium (NERCC) gathering last year, we decided to plan an event that would act as an informal conference to support summer research where participants could present work in progress, from the idea to the draft stage, and receive feedback from fellow rhet comp scholars, or simply use the time to write.

This inaugural NERCC Conference will kickoff with an opening from Howard Tinberg. After these remarks, we'll introduce ourselves and our projects before breaking out into small groups on the basis of the work we have brought and the kind of feedback we're seeking. In the afternoon, we'll provide quiet space for writing. We'll conclude with a large group feedback session and quick brainstorm to gather ideas for future NERCC events or initiatives.

After the event, we'll proceed to social time in downtown Providence at one of the many fantastic nearby restaurants! Please let us know if you cannot make this part of the event but, of course, we hope you can!

We encourage you to carpool with others from your campus. For those coming from Boston, the URI downtown location is walkable from the train station -- just a half mile from the Providence MBTA station. Scroll down on this evite to see a map of the exact location, 80 Washington St., Providence

If you'd like to stay overnight, we recommend booking through Air BnB which you can access here. Current rates for one room the night of June 14 are about $50.

Registrants will receive an email with further information closer to the event date.
