Cindy Tekobbe, Chair
The Working Group for Decolonizing Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Organizational Culture will dedicate itself to studying Indigenous world views, lifeways, rhetorical traditions, and teaching and learning practices. The Group will develop resources and provide educational opportunities for CCCC’s members invested in and committed to the work of decolonization in their teaching and scholarly work and within CCCC. With an inclusive membership – open to peoples of all identities and histories – this Group will endeavor to build and sustain deep, affiliative, reciprocal relationships within its membership and with all the CCCC members it serves. The Group will focus on developing outreach and education through such forms as webinars, podcast lectures, panel presentations, publications, and teaching circles. Finally, the Group will document its work, ensuring the preservation of institutional memory regarding its labour and the longevity of its impact.
TERM: Three years, after which the group may apply for standing group status (Article 6, Section 1E, CCCC Constitution)
