Admires the situation in schools where there is no tension between literature and composition.

  • Service-Learning, 1902

    Julia Garbus

Outlines Scudder's teaching, settlement work, and the ideologies underlying both; critiques her work with the benefit of 21st-century hindsight; and concludes by reaffirming that in the context of her times she was a remarkable figure.

  • Herm Choppers, the Adonia, and Rhetorical Action in Ancient Greece

    James Fredal

    Abstract: Presents a debate between traditionalist ideas from Xin Lin Gale and postmodern ideas from Cheryl Glenn and Susan Jarratt. Quotes Gale who says that you cannot have it both ways, foundational and antifoundational: using the historical evidence to champion Aspasia while at the same time "reclaiming" her from the biases of those very documents. Notes Jarratt's response to the contrary.
