Alternative Discourses between Home and the Academy: How Composition Studies "Mixes" Them Up.
Keller, Christopher J.
Composition Forum, v13 n1-2 p39-52 2002
Explores dilemmas that arise as compositionists continue to develop theories and practices of mixed and alternative discourses. Focuses on how composition studies have attached spatial designations to discourses. Notes that the label "home" implies that such discourses have been protected from the onslaughts of a dynamic and changing world's forces and fields of power rather than having taken place in the construction of them.
