We Cannot Teach Composition in Isolation; Anything We Say Is Culturally Shaped: An Interview with Shirley Wilson Logan
Hijazi, Nabila
Composition Forum, v38 Spr 2018
In this interview, Shirley Wilson Logan reflects on her major roles as a scholar, teacher, and an administrator. She describes her journey as chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, only one of a few black women to do so. Logan is also credited with launching the study of African American women's rhetoric as a field, writing one of the early books on African American women rhetors. Logan discusses her motivations for writing this book, "With Pen and Voice: A Critical Anthology of Nineteenth-Century African American Women", and makes connections between her scholarly focus and her work as both a teacher and an administrator.
