Big Time Sensuality: Affective Literacies and Texts That Matter.
Composition Forum, v13 n1-2 p23-37 2002
Notes that pleasure rarely receives much attention in literacy pedagogy. Argues that while composition should engage in the work of making writing pleasurable, it is equally important to recognize the pleasures that already exist for students and all textual users. Examines a critical reading of textual meaning and sensation. Explores an alternative conception of meaning as non-signifying experience, and why writing pedagogy must embrace such an alternative.
