I’m fortunate enough to be presenting a panel called “The Terms & Conditions for Community: The Role of Rhetoricians in Defining, Making, and Practicing Community” with Jonathan Bradshaw and Lori Beth De Hertogh at the Conference on Community Writing. My presentation, “Defining Our Terms, Defining Our Commitments: Cataloging the Uses of ‘Community’ in CCC” is based on my dissertation research. In this presentation, I offer a historical overview of the different uses of “community” in College Composition and Communication and suggest that writing studies practitioners need to be aware of these diverse uses in disciplinary and institutional settings.
