Writing in History: Narrating the Subject of Time.
Stockton, Sharon
Written Communication, v12 n1 p47-73 Jan 1995
Finds that the explicit definition of writing in history is "argumentation" but that the implicit expectation is for narrative. Argues that this apparent contradiction highlights the central function of academic historical discourse: the establishment of an autonomous subject of meaning that speaks from outside history about a distant and objectified past.
