Announcing new features on the Writing Studies Tree!

  • Dear all,



    The Writing Studies Tree Team is pleased to announce the next phase of our development, thanks in part to a Provost’s Digital Innovation Grant from the CUNY Graduate Center. (Read more at http://gcdi.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2012/07/23/provosts-digital-innovation-grants-7/.) In response to requests, we’ve made several improvements to the site, including two new open and collaborative tagging systems. One set of tags allows you to indicate your affiliation with professional academic organizations, including CCCC, WPA, IWCA, and more. A second set has been left wide open for your input, and interests, for tags such as “digital humanities,” “utopian studies” — or “two-year college,” “independent writing program,” and so on.



    Together, these tags allow users to connect and discover people (and institutions) not formally linked by mentoring relationships, but rather through shared interests and affiliations. The process is easy: you can add tags to new or existing pages, and once a tag has been entered anywhere, it will become a suggested tag for future use. 


    Come to writingstudiestree.org and try it out!
