This mini-conference event brings researchers and teachers together in dialogue around the questions “Do teachers care about research?” and “Do researchers care about teachers?” Plenary session presentations by researcher Dr. Masatoshi Sato (Universidad Andrés Bello, Chile) and a language educator (TBD) will be followed by a mixer in smaller break-out rooms, where language researchers and language teachers will engage in guided but informal dialogue. The event will conclude with a Town Hall-style forum, facilitated by MSU’s Second Language Studies program chair, Dr. Shawn Loewen.
Please join the Creative Writing Program and the RCAH Center for Poetry for Live Lit, a showcase of undergraduate writing, featuring the work of Cassandra Bloomingdale, Madeline Bradley, and Hannah Ramirez.
The three readers will also engage in conversation about writing and craft with Romeo Oriogun, author of The Origin of Butterflies, published through the New Generation African Poets Chapbook Series. The event will be held Tuesday, October 29, at 7 pm in the LookOut Gallery of Snyder-Phillips Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
