The Fellows Seminar brings together faculty (Senior Fellows) and graduate student instructors (Junior Fellows) from multiple disciplines who share a commitment to integrating writing in their courses.
The program is supported by the College of Literature, Science & the Arts, the Rackham Graduate School, and the Sweetland Center for Writing.
All seminar participants share an interest in:
- helping students become better writers;
- integrating writing in their courses;
- and discussing critical issues in the teaching of writing with colleagues.
For more information, including application materials and deadlines, visit the Junior Fellows and/or Senior Fellows pages. View a complete list of past Fellows Seminar participants.
I really enjoyed the Seminar and find myself missing it. Having had little opportunity to explore the scholarship of writing, I learned a tremendous amount and have a renewed commitment to rescuing the writing training of students in the sciences.
The Sweetland Seminar was one of the most rewarding experiences I've had as a graduate student. Not only did I learn a great deal about the teaching of writing but, because of of the Seminar's interdisciplinary constitution, I became familiar with those epistemological concerns that sometimes unite and sometimes divide writing across disciplines.
