About to Go to NCA


Submitted by syntaxfactory on November 21, 2013 - 8:52am


I am about to head to NCA. Though I am housed in a Department of Writing Studies, I never feel entirely at home at NCA, 4Cs, or even RSA, as RSA has grown (my first RSA had 300 people, and I miss that). I thought it had something to do with disciplinary training, but it probably also has something to do with my psychology.

the boycott business...NCA 2010


Submitted by Adria on July 7, 2010 - 12:13pm


Josh Gunn has a wonderfully informative post on the developments of the boycott of the conference hotel where the 2010 NCA conference is to be held: http://www.joshiejuice.com/blog/?p=1799&cpage=1#comment-137331. See details from Josh's post below.

-------
The convention is not until next November, however, there is no encouraging news. It doesn’t seem likely the union and hotel management will come to an agreement over a contract by then.

NCA Issues


Submitted by Jim Aune on February 21, 2010 - 12:10pm


Joshua Gunn makes a powerful case why we NCA types should be concerned about recent developments in the national office. I'm going to add a point that no doubt will get me in trouble somewhere, but I believe it's true: the Presidents of scholarly associations like AHA, MLA, ASA, and, for that matter, RSA, are always prominent scholar-intellectuals. Presidents of NCA are not, with a few notable exceptions.

If you haven't already received the email, Dana Cloud's thoughts on this year's NCA Convention are thoughtful and provocative. She suggests several courses of action for protesting the social and political conditions which set the stage for our convention on scholarship about....social and political conditions. The email in full follows:
