Here's a notice from Matthew Parfitt of BU through the BRAWN list. Many of you have probably already seen it, but just in case. . .
Dear fellow BRAWN members:I'm delighted to send you the announcement for the first BRAWN Summer Institute for Teachers of Writing, which will be held at Boston University from June 1 to June 3, 2012. It is being organized by Joe Bizup, Neal Lerner, and myself, but many other members are contributing as session facilitators or keynotes.The Institute is intended primarily for instructors of college writing who would like to develop their skills and their familiarity with the field, so please circulate this to instructors in your programs, and talk it up, if you can.Thanks to grants from Boston University's Center for the Humanities, and Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching, and from Northeastern University's English Department, participation is free, but a simple application process is required, with a deadline of March 20.You can find further details in the attachment. If you have questions, please let me — or Joe or Neal — know. Thank you! — Matt————————————-Matthew ParfittAssociate Professor, ChairRhetoric DivisionCollege of General Studies871 Commonwealth AvenueBoston, MA 02215
