Composition studies as a creative art teaching, writing, scholarship, administration by Lynn Z Bloom ( )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bloom gathers twenty of her most recent essays (some previously unpublished) on critical issues in teaching writing. She addresses matters of philosophy and pedagogy, class and marginality and gender, and textual terror transformed to textual power. Yet the body of her work and this representative collection of it remains centered, coherent, and personal. This work focuses on the creative dynamics that arise from the interrelation of writing, teaching writing, and ways of reading-and the scholarship and administrative issues engendered by it. To regard composition studies as a creative art is t
Composition in the twenty-first century crisis and change ( )
7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this book, stemming from a national conference of the same name, focus on the single subject required of nearly all college students - composition. Despite its pervasiveness and its significance, composition has on unstable status within the curriculum. Writing programs and writing faculty are besieged by academic, political, and financial concerns that have not been well understood or addressed. At many institutions, composition functions paradoxically as both the gateway to academic success and as the gatekeeper, reducing access to academic work and opportunity for those with limited facility in English. Although writing programs are expected to provide services that range from instruction in correct grammar to assisting - or resisting - political correctness, expanding programs and shrinking faculty get caught in the crossfire. The bottom line becomes the firing line as forces outside the classroom determine funding and seek to define what composition should do. In search of that definition, the contributors ask and answer a series of specific and salient questions: What implications - intellectual, political, and institutional - will forces outside the classroom have on the quality and delivery of composition in the twenty-first century? How will faculty and administrators identify and address these issues? What policies and practices ought we propose for the century to come? This book features sixteen position papers by distinguished scholars and researchers in composition and rhetoric; most of the papers are followed by invited responses by other notable compositionists. In all, twenty-five contributors approach composition from a wide variety of contemporary perspectives: rhetorical, historical, social, cultural, political, intellectual, economic, structural, administrative, and developmental. They propose solutions applicable to pedagogy, research, graduate training of composition teachers, academic administration, and public and social policy. In a very real sense, then, this is the only book to offer a map to the future of composition

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Writers Without Borders: Writing and Teaching Writing in Troubled Times, Lynn Z. Bloom presents groundbreaking research on the nature of essays and on the political, philosophical, ethical, and pragmatic considerations that influence how we read, write, and teach them in times troubled by terrorism, transgressive students, and uses and abuses of the Internet. Writers Without Borders reinforces Bloom's reputation for presenting innovative and sophisticated research with a writer's art and a teacher's heart. Each of the eleven essays addresses in its own way the essay itself as one way to live and learn with others."--Page 4 of cover
