We are proud to host events throughout the semester to engage the campus community in conversations about writing! See some of our past and upcoming offerings below.
#FacultyAsWriters Spring 2017
Our Spring 2017 installment of #FacultyasWriters featured a multidisciplinary panel discussing the connections between creativity and scholarship. We were delighted to hear from six Cal professors, including Alexander Givental (Math), Karen Barkey (Sociology), Namwali Serpell (English), Richard Kern (French), and Thomas Lacqueur (History).
#WriteBack Poetry Reading
We closed out Fall 2016 with an evening of poetry of love and resistance featuring Cal writers. Readers included Leslie Valencia, Ricky Santuario, Shivani Narang, and our very own SLC poet-in-residence, Jade Cho, reading from her new book, In the Tongue of Ghosts. The event also spotlighted brand new work from SLC student staff Abigail Zhong, Bri'Unia Stock, Marnie Lowe, Max Lopez, and Parker Kjellin-Elder, and an open mic for undergraduate readers.
#FacultyAsWriters Fall 2016
Our first ever #FacultyAsWriters panel featured seven Cal faculty discussing their writing experiences and visions for undergraduate writing at Cal. We were honored to hear from Professors Celeste Langan (English), David Landreth (English), Janet Sorensen (English), Patricia Zambryski (Plant Biology), Paula Varsano (Chinese), and Ula Taylor (African American Studies).
On October 21, 2016, we hosted our first ever reception for writing instructors & graduate student instructors! Thank you for visiting our lounge to meet our student writers, tutors, and staff, and share best practices for supporting undergraduate writing. See some of the event footage above!
