Rhetoric in Competition: The Formation of Organizational Discourse in Conference on College Composition and Communication Abstracts.
Faber, Brenton
Written Communication, v13 n3 p355-84 Jul 1996
Explores features of conference proposals submitted to the Conference on College Composition in 1989, 1990, and 1992--345 abstracts in total. Results showed that successful abstracts were more likely to follow generic qualities associated with "unsolicited proposals"; foundational discourse remained constant throughout the abstracts but nonfoundationalist discourse increased; and abstracts were increasingly broad in topics covered and theories drawn on.
