"What's in a Name?": Institutional Critique, Writing Program Archives, and the Problem of Administrator Identity
Lamos, Steve
College English, v71 n4 p389-414 Mar 2009
When scholars write about their research in writing programs' archives, they often face the ethical question of whether to name the administrators who were involved in documents. The author identifies and provides examples of three basic orientations to this issue, which he calls overt-historical, covert-qualitative, and hybrid-institutional. Referring to his own research experience, he ultimately endorses the third approach. (Contains 1 figure and 27 notes.)
