The words Syllabi: Accessible Education Tools in Non-Academic Settings
February 10, 2020

Graduate student Samantha Quade will present in the LRS Research Series.

The LRS Research Series brings together Literacy and Rhetorical Studies faculty and graduate students to share some of their current research and to engage our community in a wide-ranging interdisciplinary conversation--fortified by pizza and salad!

In Duluth, the Literacy and Rhetorical Studies minor is housed in the Department of English, Linguistics, and Writing Studies. This spring, we will feature two LRS Research Series events:

Syllabi: Accessible Education Tools in Non-Academic Settings

With the resurgence of social justice and activism in America today, we can also see a lack of accessibility through such protests in travel, work, and even education. Education, a crucial aspect of activist involvement, as become an expensive, and nearly unreachable feat, requiring time, energy, and familiarity with research practices. This presentation explores the newly adapted syllabus genre (akin to the Lemonade and Wakanda Forever syllabi) and discusses the potential that these syllabi have for accessible education for those both inside and outside of academia.
