Representing Race in Basic Writing Scholarship
Center, Carole
Journal of Basic Writing (CUNY), v26 n1 p20-42 2007
Using Susanmarie Harrington's investigation of the presence and absence of basic writing students in articles in the "Journal of Basic Writing" as a starting point, this article investigates the visibility or invisibility of race in student-present articles from 1995 to 2005. The investigation reveals that the discursive practice of colorblindness still governs the representation of race in basic writing scholarship, particularly where teacher race is concerned.
