MAWCA 2018 Presenters


Daniel Israelsson

Through analysis of how race entered into a session’s the balance of authority, I analyze how consultants should consider how aspects of identity can factor into their session’s authority complex.



Soo-jin Kweon

This proposal offers a critique of the current writing center model and re-imagines a space where Chinese ELL students are granted more agency in their own writing.

If writing centers are dedicated spaces for helping students become critical thinkers and writers within and beyond the classroom, then “creolizing” the writing center recognizes not only the linguistic, racial and cultural diversity of many writing centers in diverse universities but also helps these centers strive to define that diversity.

Simone Hunter-Hobson


Analyzing a session in which a Palestinian writer hesitated to reveal her background in a personal statement, I examine tutors’ motivational scaffolding techniques to help writers unapologetically embrace and write about their identities.
