Madhuparna (Maya) Sanyal

Title:  Assistant Director of the Writing Center and Adjunct Lecturer of English

Biography:  Maya Sanyal received her Ph.D. from Drew University in 2002. Her degree is in English Literature, with a concentration in Women’s Studies. Once an international student from Kolkata, India who learned the hard way that linguistic facility and cultural knowledge are two completely different animals, Maya’s intellectual foci include early 20th century colonial women writers, first-year composition theory and practice, and writing center theory, practice, and administration. As a Writing instructor, she is particularly interested in college-level writing in the U.S. in relation to students who are non-native speakers of English, academic writing and students with cognitive learning disabilities, and academic writing for populations who are both NSS and LD students, traditional and adult/returning. She is the Assistant Director of the Drew University Writing Center, Coordinator of the Content Tutoring Program (Office of Academic Services), and Coordinator of the Summer College Program. Maya’s philosophy of teaching/learning is based on four core beliefs: 1. first, do no harm (or an appropriate academic version of the Hippocratic oath); 2. teach to empower, not to disempower (channeling Paolo Freire); 3. if you are paying attention, you realize that the older you grow, the less you know (saying from one of the Hindu vedas); and 4. when you need a teacher, one comes along (Buddhist saying). Maya’s totem is the turtle: slow, steady, and infinitely cautious is the path to wisdom. There is no race involved, no matter what the hare might believe. What it needs is a nice, warm cup of tea, a tall, cool glass of mango lassi, or, to quote Shah Rukh Khan in one of his blockbusters, a “chill pill.”
