The Writing Rhetoric and Discourse Department welcomes Tracy Ann Morse. As part of our ongoing speaker series, Writing and Rhetoric Across Borders, the WRD department will be welcoming visiting speaker Tracy Ann Morse, Director of Writing Foundations and associate professor of rhetoric and composition in the Department of English at East Carolina University. Her talk will cover a historical overview of how religious rhetoric empowered deaf Americans to protect and preserve their sign language culture against the dominant hearing community.
The day prior to Morse’s talk, she will be holding a workshop highlighting free web-based technologies designed to create visual texts. Attendees will have time to use these technologies and discuss strategies for teaching multi-modal texts and visual compositions. For more details please see the flyers below.
