Item description for Composing a Community: A History of Writing Across the Curriculum by Susan H. McLeod & Margot Soven...

Writing across the curriculum is experiencing a renaissance in institutions across the country. People starting or restarting WAC programs will want to read COMPOSING A COMMUNITY: A HISTORY OF WRITING ACROSS THE CURRICULUM. COMPOSING A COMMUNITY is not only a history of early WAC programs but also of how the people de-veloping those programs were in touch with one another, exchanging ideas and information, forming first a network and then a community. COMPOSING A COMMUNITY captures the stories of pioneers like Elaine Maimon, Toby Fulwiler, and others, giving readers first-hand accounts from those who were present at the creation of this new movement. David Russell's introduction sets this emergent narrative into relief. Susan H. McLeod and Margot Iris Soven, themselves pioneers in WAC history, have assembled some of its most eloquent voices in this collection: Charles Bazerman, John C. Bean, Toby Fulwiler, Anne Herrington, Carol Holder, Peshe C. Kuriloff, Linda Peterson, David R. Russell, Christopher Thaiss, Bar-bara E. Walvoord, and Sam Watson. Their style is personal, lively, and informal as the authors succeed in putting their personal memories in the larger context of WAC studies. SUSAN H. MCLEOD is Professor of Writing and Director of the Writing Program at the University of Califor-nia, Santa Barbara. She has published widely on writing across the curriculum and composition. In 2006, she will publish WRITING PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION in Parlor Press's series, Reference Guides to Rhetoric and Composition. MARGOT IRIS SOVEN is Professor of English at La Salle University and is currently the Director of the Core Curriculum and the Writing Fellows Program. She has published widely on writing across the cur-riculum and composition. Her latest book is WHAT THE WRITING TUTOR NEEDS TO KNOW (Thomson-Wadsworth, 2005).
