NWP Radio—From Dusty Boxes to Display Cases, an Update on the NWP Archives Project

April 20, 2017

In partnership with The Bancroft Library at the University of California Berkeley, three years ago we launched the NWP Archives Project to ensure preservation and accessibility of NWP organizational records, publications, and resources, including more than 100 oral history interviews from founding Writing Project site directors, scholars, teacher-leaders, and funders. The NWP Archives provides a rich resource for all who are interested in the history of literacy and, in particular, composition and rhetoric, and the role of teacher leadership and professionalization in the United States, as well as the spread of the NWP model to a range of international locations.

On this day we will celebrate the grand opening of the NWP Archives at the Bancroft Library. Join us to hear about the archives' grand opening and to celebrate the project and the history of NWP.
