The words and music of Frank Zappa by Kelly Fisher Lowe( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Words and Music of Frank Zappa moves beyond the details of Zappa's biography toward a focused treatment of the rock and pop songs of this great American composer. Today, Zappa's music can be appreciated as a whole, emerging as a coherent, thoughtful, and innovative - if somewhat daunting - body of work. Author Kelly Lowe has left no aspect of that work unexamined, from Zappa's role as a satirist of the highest order, to his place in the genre of "progressive rock," and his importance as one of the foremost critics of American culture and society. The book includes an official discography and a bibliographic essay that discusses the current state of Zappa scholarship."--Jacket

The Cybernetic Writing Program by Kelly Fisher Lowe( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper looks at the role of a Writing Program Administrator, and applies the idea of a cybernetic system to the administration of the program. In this cybernetic model, the Writing Program Administrator (wpa) works as both a problem solver and problem causer, with the responsibility of keeping the program in proper balance. A cybernetic writing program emphasizes the interaction of organisms with an environment; contains an element of purpose or objective; has several control principles which are specifically addressed to the purpose/objective; features multiple lines of feedback, which are related specifically to the interactions; and finally, has a mechanism whereby the feedback gets specifically used to modify any initial acts. The paper describes in detail how the attempt was made to create an environment featuring two important cybernetic concepts: an extensive strategic planning stage, and the allowance for multiple pathways for feedback. It further describes how several cybernetic management functions have been implemented, including "feedback loops," the "limiting of uncertainty," a quick "response to feedback," and the idea of "management by exception." Contains nine references. (Sr)
Like a Hurricane The Writing Program at the Center of the Storm over the University by Kelly Fisher Lowe( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currently, many college and university English departments are reviewing the purpose of their departments. Are they still departments of literature? A writing program is best served by staying in an English department, with the caveat that the department move towards a cultural studies curriculum--the writing program within an English cultural studies program can take a central place in the university curriculum. Cultural studies is the glue that can hold the study of literature and the study of writing together. One of the main theoretical underpinnings of cultural studies is the breakdown of the binary between the production and consumption of texts. A writing program fostering political agency through the use of discourse analysis and critique would be right at home in an English department whose mission was to study language's uses in the service of power. Trimbur believes that cultural studies has sought to shift the focus from the history of the text to the history of readers. The writing program should stand in the center of English/cultural studies curriculum because the emphasis upon critique of discourse is foregrounded. It should stand at the center of the university because, notes Edward White, it has a double role as a socializing discipline (enforcing and confirming student membership in an educated community) and as an individualizing discipline (demanding critical thinking and an active relation of the self to material under study)."
