The Erasure of Language
MacDonald, Susan Peck
College Composition and Communication, v58 n4 p585-625 Jun 2007
This article traces a decline in CCCC sessions on language along with a shift toward more reductive definitions. It analyzes early CCCC treatment of language issues, the Students' Right document, changes in demographics and linguistics, and shifts within English departments that have left us overdue for professional reexamination of our role as teachers of language. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table and 13 notes.)
