Finitude's Clamor: Or, Notes toward a Communitarian Literacy.
Davis, D. Diane
College Composition and Communication, v53 n1 p119-45 Sep 2001
Notes that to the extent that rhetoric and writing studies bases its theories and pedagogies on the self-present composing subject, it is anti-communitarian. Calls for the elaboration of a "communitarian" literacy that understands reading and writing as functions of this "originary sociality," as expositions not of who one is (identity) but of the fact that "we" are (community).
