By bringing to campus an author whose book will be included in first-year composition courses, this program will engage students with a text that addresses a contemporary social issue, encourage them to extend critical and rhetorical analysis to their lives beyond the classroom, and help them synthesize what may seem like disparate academic subjects, creating an interdisciplinary spirit of curiosity on campus. Pleiades, a journal of new writing, is a great resource to learn more about various subjects as well as find book reviews.
