15 POSTER PRESENTATIONSTwelve Marion L. Brittain Fellows showcased Georgia Tech’s innovative and interdisciplinary writing and communication pedagogy in a poster session.  As scholars and teachers, Brittain Fellows are engaged in intersections between technology and the humanities. Their work was a natural fit for this year’s conference, “Cultures, Contexts, Images, Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds.” In fact, the conference title could serve as a subheading for nearly every first-year communication and technical communication class offered by the Writing and Communication Program at Tech. While scientists regularly display work in poster sessions, scholars in the humanities have not traditionally represented their work visually. The tide seems to be changing, as conferences in the humanities increasingly offer poster sessions. These sessions offer scholars the opportunity to adapt their work for a new audience and purpose. Though condensing one’s work to one display page presents challenges and frustrations, the benefits are multifold and can help scholars see their work in a new light. Scholars must explain their work concisely, incorporate design elements that appeal to a wide audience, and present their most compelling work that will get viewers asking questions. The fifteen posters that composed the Brittain Fellows’ poster session focused on interdisciplinarity within the program. The poster session (coordinated by Jennifer Holley Lux, Joy Bracewell, and Julie Munro) highlighted the intersections among the history and purpose of the Brittain Fellowship, scholarship and pedagogy, multimodal teaching projects, and Brittain Fellows as agents of change in higher education. A white-and-gold programmatic poster design identified each poster as part of Georgia Tech’s Writing and Communication Program. The session took place during SAMLA’s presidential welcome reception. At this high-visibility event, the Brittain Fellows’ 15 posters were a dramatic presence among the 24 posters selected for this special SAMLA event. Participants served as ambassadors of the Writing and Communication Program, highlighting the program’s leading-edge teaching research, and service to hundreds of guests at the SAMLA Presidential Reception.
