The Interplay between Narrative, Education, and Exposition in an Emerging Science.
Battalio, John T.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v26 n2 p177-91 1996
Shows the path to professionalization through four phases of ornithological discourse history, drawing upon articles in "The Auk," published from 1890-90. States that, originally a single discourse form, the personal narrative of natural history served ornithological science. Finds that a gap between science and public understanding was reinforced by academic programs and an emerging scientific community. (PA)
