Bawarshi, Anis; Pelkowski, Stephanie
Writing Center Journal, v19 n2 p41-58 Spr-Sum 1999
Argues that the writing center is an ideal place to teach and practice a critical and self-reflective form of acculturation, encouraging underprepared students (especially those marginalized by race, class, and ethnicity) to adopt critical consciousness. Discusses acculturation verses the goals of critical consciousness, the traditional writing center, acculturation and colonialism, and the postcolonial writing center. (SR)
