Forms of (Re)sil(i)ence: Engaging Unsaid Resistances in Disciplinary Discourses.
Detweiler, Jane A.; And Others
Exploring the formal and theoretical possibilities available in and through feminist inquiries, this paper investigates the possible impact of feminist theories on three areas of academic writing--the professional, the graduate, and the undergraduate--using a polylogic, polyvocal presentation. The paper explores the theoretical and formal possibilities of feminist approaches to inquiry, with particular attention to sites where feminist influences are absent or distorted in composition studies. The polylogue presented in the paper consists of short spoken pieces which integrate anecdotes, comments and responses, bits of overheard conversation, descriptions, quotations, and interpretations. The paper hopes to create an intertextuality that harkens back to the inter-texture-ality of women's craft: a weaving or quilting that combines, elaborates, and reframes memories, thoughts, and feelings in new patterns.
