What Our Speech Disrupts: Feminism and Creative Writing Studies.
This book explores the intersections of creative writing, composition, feminism, and critical theory in ways that speak powerfully to each discipline. It offers provocative considerations of writing and teaching, side by side with practical features including sample assignments and ready to use classroom strategies, as well as a glossary of terms adapted from theory. The book conceives a writing education where the first task is to create a context in which all students feel privileged to claim their own voices, and it formulates a series of suggestions toward a new model of writing education. (Contains 74 references.) (EF)
