In Possession of Community: Toward a More Sustainable Local
Carter, Shannon; Conrad, James H.
College Composition and Communication, v64 n1 p82-106 Sep 2012
This article summarizes various applications of oral history interviews at local sites to represent the writing of underrepresented groups. The coauthors (a rhetorician and an archivist) discuss the important disciplinary implications for tending to the local, especially at sites where formal archives are hard to come by, offering three principles for sustaining the local by combining research design with archival development. (Contains 10 notes.)
