Tactics and the Quotidian: Resistance and Professional Discourse.
Herndl, Carl G.
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v16 n3 p455-70 1996
Focuses on the concept of resistance to prescribed forms of writing as it has been theorized in scholarship on rhetoric. Argues that writers outside the academy engage in resistance in a wide variety of ways. Draws on a case study of a civilian biologist who does his job well but finds outlets for his resistance to institutional expectations. (TB)
