Item description for Historical Studies Of Writing Program Administration: Individuals, Communities, And The Formation Of A Discipline (Lauer Series in Rhetoric and Composition) by Barbara L'Eplattenier & Lisa Mastrangelo...

Historical Studies of Writing Program Administration: Individuals, Communities, and the Formation of a Discipline collects essays that shine new light on the early history of writing program administration. Broad in scope, the book illuminates the development of the profession in the narratives of the individuals who helped form the discipline prior to the emergence of the Council of Writing Program Administrators in 1976, including those narratives of Gertrude Buck and Laura J. Wylie, Edwin Hopkins, Regina Crandall, Rose Colby, George Jardine, Clara Stevens, Stith Thompson, and George Wykoff. Drawing from deep archival work, these narratives offer rare glimpses into writing program administration and the development of composition as a college requirement.

In addition to eleven chapters from contributors, Historical Studies of Writing Program Administration includes a preface by Edward M. White, a concluding essay by Jeanne Gunner, interviews with Erika Lindemann and Kenneth Bruffee, and a detailed introduction by the editors, Barbara L'Eplattenier and Lisa Mastrangelo.

Reviews - What do customers think about Historical Studies Of Writing Program Administration: Individuals, Communities, And The Formation Of A Discipline (Lauer Series in Rhetoric and Composition)?

A Groundbreaking Study  Feb 27, 2005
Among this book's many strengths is its focus on schools other than Harvard and the University of Michigan. The essays describe writing program administrations at the University of Kansas, Bryn Mawr, Xavier University, Purdue, Illinois State Normal University, the University of Glasgow, Indiana University, and Vassar College. The breadth of coverage of L'Eplattenier and Mastrangelo's book is important.

The essays discuss subjects from the late eighteenth century to the present, including an insightful essay by Amy Heckathorn about how writing program administrators began to form a group identity for themselves in the 1940s.

Because of their historical and personal focus, the essays are fascinating. Several read like political thrillers. At the conclusion of D'Ann George's essay on the conflict between Regina Crandall and Howard Savage in the Essay department at Bryn Mawr College, I let out a cheer when Crandall won approval for a sabbatical in the 1923-24 school year but Savage was declined, which resulted in his resigning to take another job. There is justice in the academy!

This is a great book and a 'must-read' for anyone studying the history of writing program administration in America in the past 200 years.
