1. Riggs, Nicholas. "Performing Reflexivity: A paper about writing a paper about writing a paper..." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Ninth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, May 15, 2013 <Not Available>. 2018-11-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p645301_index.html>

Abstract: Every paper has a story that goes untold. It’s the story of how the paper was written—the text behind the text. Writing, as a form of inquiry, is as much an invocative process as it is evocative in its production. This paper is a thought experiment that shows the process behind the process of producing a paper for a seminar class. Taking a good deal of creative license, I show what graduate students might go through as they generate new ideas and grapple with the conventions of writing, managing personal relationships, procrastination, negotiating professional expectations, and lacking sleep as they try to do good work. By performing reflexivity autoethnographically, I speak through the silences of the graduate student experience, illustrating the writing process in passages that show academic socialization, a place where work and play collide in the pressure cooker of disciplined creativity.

Abstract: Paper is changing the climate. Paper’s impact is one of our planet’s most significant environmental challenges. The industry uses vast amounts of fossil fuels and chemicals, prevents forests from sequestering carbon naturally, and has yet to divert most paper from landfills, where it is the number one component and releases more methane than any other type of waste. Because it is inevitable that paper will be a part of our lives for the foreseeable future, it is imperative that we undertake immediate action and critical leadership.

From text books to tissues, paper usage is a way of life on campus. With over 20 million students in the U.S. today, each using at least 700 pounds of paper a year, campuses have not only an opportunity to make a difference, but also a responsibility. The vast majority of universities today take that responsibility seriously with 47% of campuses surveyed having set goals to increase their environmental purchasing policies. And with $300 billion in purchasing power, campuses can play a critical role in advancing environmental paper products. Currently, higher education institutions landfill as much as 50% of their paper waste. This is a poor use of resources that went into making that product, and it’s imperative that campuses put proper recycling systems in place.

Paper Steps on Campus advances student-led stewardship toward sustainable paper practices on campuses. Paper-use efficiency, environmental paper purchasing, and improving recycling programs all present great opportunities for significant climate and environmental benefits.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The increasing availability of paper and blank paper books contributed significantly to the rise in manuscript production and circulation in early modern England. Port books, stationers’ bills, letters, and royal and personal account books and inventories provide insight into the quantity, quality, and consumption of imported writing paper. This talk considers the paper-buying habits of various individuals and institutions, and attempts to categorize different kinds of writing paper and paper books and their relative costs.
