This is a conference about what happens on the margins of student papers–whose voices get marginalized, what discourses, languages and perspectives are made marginal, and where racisms become visible in and beyond margins. 

Racism in the Margins is a UConn-wide initiative that opens up space for educators across disciplines to collaborate on more socially just approaches to teaching, responding to, and evaluating writing. Please join us during two Fridays in February to think about race and writing with four leading scholars.
