Gender and "Writing Formations" in First-Year Narratives.
Sirc, Geoffrey
Freshman English News, v18 n1 p4-11 Fall 1989
Examines gender differences in topic choice by analyzing freshman writers' narratives of an incident they witnessed. Finds that pronounced, gender-based patterns influence text production, with women demonstrating caring and nurturing values in everyday life and men engaging in romantic fantasies of self-aggrandizement or apocalyptic fascination with automobile accidents.
