Presentation Title: "The Student as Future Donor: Redefining Service in the Academy's New Economy"
Date: November 1, 2001
Composition scholars have long been concerned with the construction of the student and the field has been defined, in large part, by debates about the consequences of seeing students as basic writers, as the foci for pedagogies of empowerment and liberation, as potential activists, and, most recently, as the innocent victims of the university's first-year writing requirement.
What happens, though, when we think of the student as a future donor? How would the discipline be changed by seeing our role as better serving the university's future donors?
