  • Enacting Faith: Evangelical Discourse and the Discipline of Composition Studies

    Lizabeth A. Rand

    Abstract: This essay contends that religious belief often matters to our students and that spiritual identity may be the primary kind of selfhood that more than a few of them draw upon in making meaning of their lives and the world around them. Particular attention is given to evangelical expression in the classroom and the complex ways that faith is enacted in discourse.

  • Becoming Visible: Lessons in Disability

    Brenda Jo Brueggemann, Linda Feldmeier White, Patricia A. Dunn, Barbara A. Heifferon, and Johnson Cheu

    Abstract: The five authors call for increased awareness of disability in composition studies and argue that such an awareness can productively disrupt notions of “writing” and “composing” at the same time it challenges “normal”/“not normal” binaries in the field. In six sections: Brueggemann introduces and examines the paradox of disability's “in-visibility”; White considers the social construction of learning disabilities; Dunn analyzes the rhetoric of backlash against learning disabilities; Heifferon illustrates how a disability text challenged her students; Cheu describes how a disability-centered writing class made disability visible; all five conclude with challenges and directions for composition studies in intersecting with disability studies.

  • Silence: Reflection, Literacy, Learning, and Teaching

    Pat Belanoff

    Abstract: The Word. In the beginning was the word, in principio erat verbum, in the words of the Vulgate version of the gospel according to John. In medieval manuscripts of this gospel, verbum and the words surrounding it are usually prominent in some way (large, ornately decorated); the text enacts itself and the words became an icon for their own meaning. The prophet John continued by equating his God with the Word and attributing the making of all things to this God/Word.

  • Centering in on Professional Choices

    Muriel Harris

    Abstract: I examine my involvement with writing centers as an example of how we can look at the choices we’ve made within our areas of expertise to see why they attract us. In my case, the flexible, collaborative, individualized, non-evaluative, experimental, non-hierarchical, student-centered nature of writing centers is an excellent fit. An earlier version of this article was delivered as the Exemplar’s Address at the Fifty-first Annual CCCC in April 2000.
