This website is part of an ongoing project by Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellows serving on the World Englishes Committee in the Writing and Communication Program at Georgia Tech. One of the committee’s goals for this site involves curating pedagogical and theoretical perspectives relating to diverse forms of English (“Englishes”) and its communities of practice around the world. Through this website the committee seeks to make available numerous educational resources pertaining to communication, composition, World Englishes, English-language learning, global literatures, and other related topics, which might be valuable either to Georgia Tech students or the faculty members responsible for teaching, advising, and mentoring those students.
“The Ivan Allen Digital Archive is a digital humanities project that collects the digitized mayoral records of Ivan Allen Jr., the 52nd mayor of Atlanta, from 1962 to 1970. The archive collects material from one of the most historic decades in Atlanta’s history. It functions as the primary digital repository for the history of Mayor Allen’s role in the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the history of race relations in 1960s Atlanta, construction of the Atlanta Stadium, massive changes in desegregation, infrastructure, housing, and transportation overseen by Allen’s administration, and much more. Originally digitized by a team of researchers and students with the support of the Digital Integrated Liberal Arts Center (DILAC) funded by the Mellon Foundation, this Omeka-based project continues to be developed as a pedagogical resource for use in the Writing and Communication Program at Georgia Tech.”
Dr. Jeff Howard and Dr. Brandy Blake of Georgia Tech’s Naugle CommLab conceived of the Narratives of Reading, Writing, and Other Literacies (NARWOL) archive as a platform for publishing the literacy narratives of CommLab’s peer and professional consultants. The narratives contained in this archive collectively recount and reflect on experiences that have informed the development of the CommLab’s employees as multimodal communicators and the ways in which those experiences contribute to each individual’s tutoring skill set, approaches, and personas. They add a significant set of perspectives to the history and mission of the Naugle CommLab.
