The Writing Center as "Purified Space": Competing Discourses and the Dangers of Definition.
Petit, Angela
Writing Center Journal, v17 n2 p111-22 Spr 1997
Addresses the definition prevalent in writing center scholarship that divides centers into rigid ideological categories with specific, often metaphorical names and distinct activities, theoretical foundations, and sense of place within academic institutions. Argues that situating writing centers within these separable categories brings the danger that centers will be perceived as "purified space" where only one discourse is spoken. (PA)
