Discursive Conflict in Communities and Classrooms.
Roberts-Miller, Trish
College Composition and Communication, v54 n4 p536-57 Jun 2003
Addresses a situation in which a foreign student wrote an extremely homophobic message to a class mailing list--advocating the death penalty for homosexuals, something which is "a practice common in his homeland." Engages in a less triumphal reading of the episode with the homophobic student, then explicates the controversies over communitarian political theory, and ends with a discussion of the notion of communities of discourse.
