Volume 36 of Composition Forum now available!

Posted by – August 10, 2017

Volume 36 of Composition Forum, a Special Issue on Public Writing in Composition, is now available at: http://compositionforum.com/issue/36/

This special issue, guest edited by Christopher Minnix, begins with interviews with Susan Wells and Paula Mathieu that explore the development of public writing scholarship and respond to the question “what do we want from public writing now?”

This special issue also includes five articles that expand and build upon the insights of public writing scholarship in order to respond to exigencies, affordances, and constraints of teaching public writing in our current moment. Two program profiles of the University of North Dakota and The University of Michigan Dearborn provide insightful explorations of public writing pedagogy within the classroom and beyond classroom and national borders. In addition, this special issue contains a thought-provoking forum on the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives as a space of public discourse, as well as an insightful review of Shari Stenberg’s Repurposing Composition: Feminist Interventions for a Neoliberal Age.

We hope you will read this volume of Composition Forum, and we welcome your suggestions and comments.
