Dr. Dobrin specializes in composition theory, visual rhetoric, digital rhetoric, posthumanism, and environmental rhetoric. He is the author or editor of more than a dozen books on those subjects. His keynote address will focus on "Classroom Pedagogy in a Postcomposition World." After Dr. Dobrin's address, there will be a number of break-out sessions related to postcomposition pedagogy led by BC, ESL and English and Literature faculty. Faculty and students from across the university are invited in addition to special guests (high school teachers) from the community.
