Katrina Bell, Southern Illinois University (PhD student) and Colorado College (Assoc. Director of the Writing Center)
Congratulations to Katrina Bell, who has been awarded the first IWCA Dissertation Grant for her project “Tutor, Teacher, Scholar, Administrator: Perceptions of Current and Alumni Graduate Consultants.” As Katrina describes it, this “three-part project contributes to the emerging sub-field of writing center studies that focuses on graduate writing consultants. [The] study provides a snapshot of the current state of professional development for writing center consultants at the graduate level and the future of writing center administration.” The grant committee unanimously agreed that Katrina’s application stood out among a strong field—we are heartened and thrilled with the future of writing center studies given this crop of applications—and we look forward to learning of the results of her research.
