What Is New About the "New Abolitionists": Continuities and Discontinuities in the Great Debate.
Goggin, Maureen Daly; Miller, Susan Kay
Composition Studies, v28 n2 p85-112 Fall 2000
Examines positions held by those challenging the status quo in composition and dispels apparent misconceptions about their goals and motivations. Outlines the discontinuities between earlier "abolitionist" calls for reconceiving the discipline and recent "new abolitionist" arguments to illustrate that in these newer calls lies the potential for taking new directions and for carving multiple systemic paths for writing instruction.
