Kathleen Blake Yancey has directed the nationally recognized Roy and Marnie Pearce Center for Professional Communication at Clemson University since 2000. In January 2004, the university opened the Class of 1941 Studio for Student Communication, a 4000 square foot, multimedia learning space for students. Her article in the Fall 2004 WPA (“New Studio Composition”) details the collaborative design of the Studio, as well as elements of designing a digitally aware curriculum.
Her recent article in the June 2004 issue of CCC, “Postmodernism,
Palimpsest, and Portfolios,” further explores the currently evolving
landscape of the diverse though still rhetorical act of portfolio
composition and assessment.
