“Is It Too Early? First-Year Students Recover History and Write in the Archives”

Vanessa Rouillon (Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication)
Dr. Rouillon will discuss her collaboration with JMU Library's Special Collections. She introduces her first-year students to rhetorical visions, and trains them to research the university's history using archival texts and historical records. Her presentation and the discussion that follows will consider how these pedagogical practices impact students' identities and their duties as citizens.
