ReVision & ReForm:

Teaching Writing Across Borders

Keynote address by Professor Suresh Canagarajah


The NYU 2020 Symposium Committee has decided to postpone ReVision and Reform: Teaching Writing Across Borders, which was set to take place at NYU Tandon in downtown Brooklyn from April 24-25. Our new tentative date is October 23-24.

We reached this decision, after careful deliberation and discussions with NYU leadership and our members, due to the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and restrictions on non-essential travel implemented by many universities that impact the ability of our presenters, facilitators, and other attendees to participate in the event.

Although we are disappointed, in accord with our priorities of safeguarding the heath, safety, and well-being of the community, we feel this is the right decision.

If you are currently a presenter or facilitator, we hope that you will be able to participate in our fall session. If you feel that this is a high unlikelihood or have any questions, please contact us. Please remember to cancel your hotel and travel plans as necessary. If you were planning to stay at the NU Hotel, call (718) 852-8585 to cancel your room.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we collectively navigate these uncertain days.

An international symposium hosted by the NYU Expository Writing Program, NYU Abu Dhabi, and the NYU Department of English, ReVision & ReForm: Teaching Writing Across Borders will bring together writing faculty, program administrators, and scholars from across disciplines—and across the globe—to discuss how we might better align writing pedagogies with the ethical and political realities of writing in the 21st century.

ReVision & ReForm is tentatively scheduled for October 23-24, 2020, at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn, New York. A keynote address will be delivered by Professor Suresh Canagarajah, the Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Applied Linguistics, English, and Asian Studies at Pennsylvania State University.
