2016 CGC Summer Institute, June 9-11


CGC Summer Institute 2016

“Bridging English Language Teaching and Writing Studies
in Supporting All Graduate Writers”

Thursday June 9 to Saturday June 11, 2016
Yale University, New Haven, CT.


In this 2-and-a-half-day retreat for graduate communication specialists, we will hear from experts in the field, share ideas and experiences, and work in groups to develop programs, courses, and research agendas. Building on our successful 2015 colloquium in Toronto, the CGC Summer Institute is an opportunity for us to roll up our sleeves and pursue our goals of supporting graduate communication skills. Participants are encouraged to attend the Institute to develop a specific project in program, course, or research design for their local contexts. Keynotes, discussions, and working groups will provide ideas and opportunities for collaboration and writing.

Keynote speakers

  • Michelle Cox, Cornell University
  • Mary Jane Curry, University of Rochester
  • Christine Feak, University of Michigan
  • Karyn Mallet, George Mason University
  • Talinn Phillips, Ohio University
  • Steve Simpson, New Mexico Tech
