ISD3: Re-envisioning Graduate Communications from a Raciolinguistic Lens


This Working Group uses a raciolinguistic lens to examine graduate student communication pedagogy, mentorship, program administration, and research, to explore practices, create inclusive programs/pedagogies, and disrupt the regulation of student communication.

Collaborative Goals

For 2021-2022, we held one event: a Zoom discussion with Dr. Alexandria Lockett about her work in graduate communication, "Race, place, and writing centers." The discussion went as planned with a recorded video that could be used by the Working Group members.

Group Outcomes

The availability of Zoom has made possible all of the five formal events of our Working Group over the past two years (four invited guest discussions and one general Working Group meeting) and supported planning meetings by the organizers. While most presenters declined to give permission for us to share the Zoom recording of their event, some did. In addition, presenters shared PDFs of their work via Google docs or email.
