Cultivating Inclusive Writing Practices

Course Code: BCPW 2002

Academic Year: 2023-2024

This course aims to dismantle personal and cultural biases so as writers we can sensitively and accurately honour and reflect the richness and range of voices in our communities. Students engage in interactive discussions, exploring the key concepts of equity, diversity and inclusion. Through workshops, guest speakers and guided conversations, students explore issues of representation and language, especially as they relate to equity-deserving groups, accessibility, BIPOC and the LGBTQQIP2SAA communities. Students deliver multimodal declarations that endeavour to express their deepened understanding of what it means to be a compassionate and conscientious member of the writing community.
