Iconic Discourse: The Troubling Legacy of Mina Shaughnessy.
Gunner, Jeanne
Journal of Basic Writing, v17 n2 p25-42 Fall 1998
Examines two debates within the basic writing community (the reaction against Min Zhan Lu's early theoretical work and the recent acrimonious debate regarding Ira Shor's defense of mainstreaming) showing how they reflect conflicting models of the basic writing field, with "critical" discourse challenging the conventions and authority of the "iconic" discourse (the legacy of Mina Shaughnessy).
