"Tales of Neglect and Sadism": Disciplinarity and the Figuring of the Graduate Student in Composition.
Taylor, Marcy; Holberg, Jennifer L.
College Composition and Communication, v50 n4 p607-25 Jun 1999
Examines how the way in which compositionists have figured their past affects what they have become, are becoming, and will become, as a discipline. Considers how graduate students' narratives (publications in this journal in particular) are surprisingly unchanging over time and unaffected by "reforms" in the profession. Hopes to (dis)locate the easy narrative of professionalization from the very beginning: in graduate school. (SC)
