Knowledge and Acknowledgement: Teaching Students to Write with (and Cite) Sources
Hofstra’s Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program will present a lecture by MIT’s Suzanne Lane, titled “Knowledge and Acknowledgement: Teaching Students to Write with (and Cite) Sources.” This will take place at Emily Lowe Gallery on Wednesday, March 6, during Common Hour.
Dr. Lane directs the Writing Across the Curriculum at MIT, where she teaches courses in rhetoric and works with faculty in many disciplines to improve writing instruction across the curriculum. She holds an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT, and a PhD in English from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Before moving to MIT in 2008, she was the Assistant Director of the Expository Writing Program at Harvard University, and has taught literature and writing at Boston University, and California State University, San Bernardino. Her research interests rest at the intersections of rhetoric, cultural studies, and narrative theory, with current research on how students acquire genre knowledge across different disciplines.
