Wilson, N. (2014). Making Space for Diversity. College Composition and Communication, 66(1), 31-33. (PDF)

In this short essay, Wilson details the changes that she made to her college's writing center website and the challenges she received from colleagues because of this. While she does not offer up many solutions to the faculty conflicts she presents, this article is useful for suggesting different ways to make a literature department's "virtual space" more diverse and inclusive.


Hoecherl-Alden, G., & Griffin, S. (2014). Media Literacy at All Levels: Making the Humanities More Inclusive. NECTFL Review, 74, 15-33. (PDF)

The primary focus of this essay is to examine the ways in which language (and literature) courses can better integrate digital humanities to be more conducive to study by digital natives. While this article does not focus on a specific type of diversity, it works towards a teaching style and classroom environment that is better suited overall to be sensitive towards the students' own level of literacy towards the world.
