Existensialism in the Writing Center: The Path to Individuality - 2 views

    Joseph Hill

    University of California Davis

    From Praxis: "Being a philosophy minor and English major, I constantly look at interactions that take place between the different disciplines and ways in which life can be approached from a philosophical standpoint. Existentialism is a philosophy that piqued my interest with its reliance on the precedence of the individual and the consequentiality of man's choices."

    From Praxis: "A writing center consultant explores strategies for empowering students writers. When I began training to work in the Writing Center at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), I perceived it to be an inherently feminist learning space."

    Jessica MurrayFlorida Atlantic University
    From Praxis: "When ESL writers write, they are attempting to be heard in an academic community. One of the academy's shortcomings is its disinclination to hear from writers who struggle with academic discourse. In a contact zone, such as a university that includes accomplished and novice academics, communication becomes a casualty (particularly with novices whose first language is not English)."
