Centre welcomes FCCS faculty member
Jordan Stouck, composition instructor for the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, has been appointed the new director of the Centre for Scholarly Communication (CSC).
Stouck has a PhD in English from Queen’s University and specializes in composition, rhetoric and Canadian literature. She has been teaching about writing for 12 years and came to UBC from the University of Lethbridge in 2009. Her recent publications include the Canadian version of the textbook, Writing Today, and an edition of Sinclair Ross’s letters, Collecting Stamps Would Have Been More Fun.
With Stouck as director, the CSC will offer services for the new academic year starting on August 19. It will support graduate students, upper-level undergraduates and faculty members in communicating their research and scholarly work.
It will offer one-on-one consultations, workshops on a wide range of topics as well as writing groups and communities of practice. Workshops that focus on editing, grant and proposal writing, and literature reviews will start later in August.
Stouck is looking forward to leading the Centre into the future and building on what previous director Carolyn Labun has established. Labun is returning to the School of Engineering after a secondment to pilot the CSC through its successful first two years.
