Two English courses, English 3210 “Ethnography of the University” and English 4210 “Writing for Social Justice,” will host two public events on Thursday, April 27, in the Digital Scholarship Lab located on the lower level of Raynor Memorial Libraries.
The “Ethnography of the University” course will host a poster fair from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. where fourteen students will present their undergraduate research of life at Marquette. Projects address a wide range of topics, including student activism, office hours, sustainability, academic stress, counseling services, campus-community relations, and the Marquette Bubble.
The “Writing for Social Justice” course will host students from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to present semester-long projects addressing issues like sexual assault, rape culture, ecofeminism, racially coded language, and equity in education. Students will also describe collaborations with America’s Black Holocaust Museum and the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin.
Light refreshments will be served at both events. For more information or questions contact Dr. Beth Godbee, assistant professor of English, at (414) 288-3468.
