The Regulatory Role of the Writing Center: Coming to Terms with a Loss of Innocence.
Grimm, Nancy
Writing Center Journal, v17 n1 p5-29 Fall 1996
Positions writing centers in the painful paradoxes of literacy work and strips away the belief in innocence to make scholar-teachers more aware of the ways that literacy practices reproduce the social order and regulate access and subjectivity. Uses two stories about writing center students to illustrate the ways writing centers are inadvertently implicated in regulatory uses of literacy. (TB)
