First there were three... now there are five and who knows what will happen next week!
We started this endeavor as a group of scholars concerned with new issues and directions for literacy scholarship and academia at large. We are united in our efforts to seek non-traditional outlets to share our academic thoughts with the world as part of a renewed vision for academic advocacy. That broughts us together to create our un-webinar.
We are very excited about 2017 and the chances to reflect further on these issues via our chat, presentations, and publications. We are Obnoxious Academics, and we are coming together. This is our consortium, here is where we will make our stand.
We are ready for more academic shenanigans in the new year... are you?
Happy New Year from the Obnoxious Academics Consortium!
what (and who) is the #OAC?
The OAC (Obnoxious Academics Consortium) is the brainchild of literacy scholars Drs. Peggy Semingson (UT-Arlington), W. Ian O'Byrne (College of Charleston), and Raúl A. Mora (UPB-Medellín). Initially chartered as #3OA, it has grown as we have found that we are not the only Obnoxious Academics and there are more who have joined us. At present, Drs. Leigh Hall (UNC-Chapel Hill) William Kist (Kent State University), and Shelbie Witte (Oklahoma State University) have joined the consortium, and we may expect more numbers coming soon!
