Stephanie Kerschbaum

Title: “Signs of Disability in the Writing Center”

RSVP LINK

Abstract: Where and how and when does disability emerge in the writing center? In this talk, Stephanie Kerschbaum will briefly discuss her concept of “signs of disability” and how it can usefully inform the way we approach our work in the writing center. Signs of disability are material-discursive-rhetorical cues that point to the presence of disability in some way, shape or form. One way for writing center staff and tutors to orient to these signs is to think about the stories we tell about our experiences and what those stories might reveal about where we are putting our attention (or not putting it). Attendees will have a chance to do some freewriting and reflection during the talk.

Bio: Stephanie L. Kerschbaum is currently Associate Professor of English at the University of Delaware, and beginning July 1, 2021, she will be Associate Professor and Director of the Expository Writing Program at the University of Washington. Her first book, Toward a New Rhetoric of Difference, won the 2015 CCCC Advancement of Knowledge Book Award and she is the co-editor of Negotiating Disability: Disclosure and Higher Education. Her work has appeared in a range of journals and collections, and she’s currently at work on a book called Signs of Disability focused on how disability becomes available for noticing in everyday encounters. She can be reached at kersch.uw@gmail.com and loves to hear about all kinds of signs of disability from other people.
