Composition History and the "Harbrace College Handbook."
Hawhee, Debra
College Composition and Communication, v50 n3 p504-23 Feb 1999
Presents a critical history of a particular composition handbook: the "Harbrace College Handbook." Argues that such handbooks serve two important institutional purposes: articulating what is deemed important subject matter for composition classrooms (handbooks write the discipline); and shaping teacher and student subjectivities (disciplining the writer).
