For the second episode of Slow Agency Season 2, we chatted with Dr. Rose Richards, Head of the Writing Lab for Stellenbosch University about the writing center landscape in South Africa. In 2011, she co-edited the book Changing Spaces: Writing Centers and Access to Higher Education and co-authored the introduction titled “Writing Centers as Alternate Pedagogical Spaces”. She’s also contributed to our blog in 2015. We hope you’ll enjoy hearing from our international colleagues. Stay tuned for more next month!
