Composing Feminisms: How Feminists Have Shaped Composition Theories and Practices
Author ORCID Identifier
This book offers an updated, precise and comprehensive definition of feminist pedagogy culled from over three decades of scholarship. The author's historical research spans across the curricula but also takes care to focus on the field of composition and how feminist theories of pedagogy have changed the field of writing instruction. It argues that feminist pedagogy has been the spring board for contemporary theories and practices of composition. In addition to the research on how feminist pedagogy has evolved and shapes composition, the author also conducts three ethnographic studies of prominent feminist scholars/teachers. These studies document how feminists have changed the field of composition and how individual academic feminists in composition and rhetoric negotiate and enact their feminisms.
