Collaborating with Power: Contradictions of Working as a WPA.
Smoke, Trudy
WPA: Writing Program Administration, v21 n2-3 p92-100 Spr 1998
Reflects on the nature of power and the value of collaboration in Writing Program Administration work. Argues that the WPA position is a contradictory one which contains within it the paradox of powerless power (having responsibility and little authority, having insider knowledge and being institutionally ignorant, and needing to cooperate and wanting to resist) and is in constant redefinition.
