The Connecticut Writing Project invites you to attend a day of workshops with Harvard’s Doris Sommer, author of The Work of Art in the World: Civic Agency and Public Humanities (Duke UP 2014) and creator of Pre-Texts, “a fun and flexible teacher training program that develops high order literacy and citizenship by using complex texts as prompts for making art.” Professor Sommer will run two workshops on Friday, September 30, this first from 10 to 12 and the second from 1 to 3, in the North Reading Room of the Wilbur Cross Building. The morning workshop will be for participation, and the afternoon for training in facilitation. Participants will attend both workshops, and lunch will be provided by Lizzie Searing of Taking Care of Tummies.
