Webinar: Coalition for Community Writing – Academic Job Market Workshop – Sep 4

Posted by Coalition for Community Writing on August 25, 2020

The Coalition for Community Writing is proud to announce the first workshop in our job market series — to support people on the academic job market to best showcase their community-engaged work. We will offer alt-ac workshops this year, as well.

The Workshop

This online workshop, sponsored by the Coalition for Community Writing, will offer mentorship and advice to participants going on the academic job market this fall or in the future. It will be led by eight teacher-scholars in rhetoric and composition, a group of faculty who have either served on multiple academic search committees or who have recently successfully navigated the academic job market in tenure track, non-tenure track, and staff positions.  Our facilitators, who have deep experience with community writing and literacy projects, can offer advice related to how to search for jobs and how to frame community-engaged work in job market materials so that it is understandable and impressive to search committee members, especially those who may not be familiar with the value of this work.

We invite participants who are planning to go on the job market either this year or in the future, at any level of experience with community-engaged writing.
