Joshua Kutney, assistant professor of composition, has been invited to present his paper “The New Insiders: Successful Student Writers in an Expanding Academy” at the 2015 National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention, which will be held in November in Minneapolis. The paper argues that what it means to be a successful student writer has changed. Writers are sometimes successful because they have developed a level of expertise in an academic discipline, but sometimes merely because they appear to be serious and motivated.


On May 6, Gina Covelli, Lakeland’s community relations manager, was named one of 11 Next Wave award recipients by Coastal Young Professionals Network for being one of the top young professionals in Sheboygan County. Coastal is part of the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce.

Christopher Moore, a ssociate professor of sociology, is quoted in an article entitled “The President’s Speech” by Abigail Lambert in The Weekly Wonk, a digital magazine and podcast from New America “focused on the ideas and policy challenges that will shape our future.”

The article discusses how a person’s vocal pitch influences perceptions of competence and dominance – and how this will likely impact the upcoming presidential debates, especially with Hillary Clinton among the candidates. It’s a peek into current sociological (and political science) research on paraverbal cues and the use of vocal coaching and other methods of controlling messaging in politics.

Joshua Kutney, assistant professor of composition, was an invited speaker at the 2015 Annual Convention of the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC). Kutney presented his paper "Rhetoric, Transfer, and the Students We Actually Teach," which argues that instructors apply an unstated hierarchy when they evaluate student writing. Before they consider the rhetoric of a paper, instructors assess its syntax, adherence to assignment guidelines, and content. Kutney’s work is based on instructor interviews and an analysis of over 400 student texts.
