Although scholars in composition and literature are often housed in the same department and literal spaces, our interactions across these scholarly lines can vary in significant ways, ranging from open and dynamic to divisive and conflicting. This roundtable seeks to bring attention and insight to the many ways in which composition and literature faculty interact in scholarly and collegial ways. In doing so, we hope to offer attendees different strategies for approaching the dynamics within their departments and the discipline at large.
