Disciplinarity, Divorce, and the Displacement of Labor Issues: Rereading Histories of Composition and Literature
Ianetta, Melissa
College Composition and Communication, v62 n1 p53-72 Sep 2010
This essay argues that a trend in histories of literary and writing studies is to bifurcate the origins of the fields and so engage in those modernist narrative fallacies described by Jean-Francois Lyotard. Such works limit our understanding of past practices and the longstanding connections between disciplinarity and labor. (Contains 2 notes.)
