"The Work at Hand: Investigation, Articulation, and Labor in the Center.".

"The Work at Hand: Investigation, Articulation, and Labor in the Center." The 28th Conference of the East Central Writing Centers Association, March 9-11, 2006, Mount Union College, Alliance, OH. Writing center work enables institutions and communities to understand what we do, why we do it, and how we do it. This can extend to our sense of inclusion and how our work is valued. But, we also fight for autonomy and self-determination that other academic entities seldom enjoy. At times, our field can seem at odds with itself in pursuing these seemingly conflicting goals of inclusion and autonomy, and at a loss for articulating in meaningful ways for others how we know what we do is working. When we work toward deeper understanding of our own work, together, we also facilitate greater depth in explaining and exploring what we do with others. This conference is designed to provoke and share that depth of understanding. Please visit http://www.ecwca.org/ for further details.
