Audible Silence: Cy Twombly at Daros


Submitted by syntaxfactory on September 1, 2015 - 6:44am


"A writer doesn't see language with the readability and clarity of something printed out. He sees it, rather as a terrain full of illegibilities, hidden paths, impasses, surprises, and obscurities. Its obscurities, its lost senses, its self-effacement come about for many reasons - because of the way words modify each other, write themselves over each other, cancel one another out, because the unsaid always counts for as much, or more, than the said."
--John Berger, "Audible Silence: Cy Twombly at Daros"

I was talking about literacy narratives with a colleague.

I remembered this:
http://daln.osu.edu/

The Digital Archives of Literacy Narratives (DALN) is a publicly available archive of personal literacy narratives in a variety of formats (text, video, audio) that together provide a historical record of the literacy practices and values of contributors, as those practices and values change.

Rhetoric Society of America ... RSA14 Edited Volume Arriving Soon!
Dear RSA Friends,

I hope you are all ready and prepared for the coming Fall semester. I know that for many of us Fall brings with it the fun and excitement of seeing old colleagues and meeting new ones as well as those fascinating first moments with a new set of students. Of course, it is also a time for polishing up those summer research projects, looming deadlines, and meetings, meetings, meetings.

University of Missouri Treats Graduate Students Badly, Probably Ruins Chances of Securing Quality Students for the Next 10 Years


Submitted by syntaxfactory on August 17, 2015 - 11:06pm


From: http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/university-of-missouri-ends-fundi...

The University of Missouri, citing changes in federal policy, says it’s no longer allowed to provide subsidies to its graduate students to pay for health insurance.
The notice, sent to the university’s graduate students on Aug. 14, comes less than two weeks before the start of the academic school year, potentially leaving some students in the lurch.
