Writing is central to the work of all intellectuals, yet any given scholar’s relationship to writing is a uniquely personal one. Gary A. Olson and Lynn Worsham bring together some of the world’s leading scholars from a variety of disciplines to examine how they conceive of their own relationship to writing and to the work of being a critical intellectual. Using excerpts from interviews, originally published in JAC, each scholar’s thoughts are revealed about writing habits, how writing relates to intellectual work, and the politics of intellectual work.

Included are excerpts of interviews with the following: Gloria Anzald˙a, Mary Field Belenky, Homi Bhabha, Judith Butler, Noam Chomsky, Donald Davidson, Jacques Derrida, Michael Eric Dyson, Stanley Fish, Paulo Freire, Clifford Geertz, Henry Giroux, Stuart Hall, Donna Haraway, Sandra Harding, bell hooks, Luce Irigaray, Ernesto Laclau, Jean-Franšois Lyotard, J. Hillis Miller, Chantal Mouffe, Avital Ronell, Richard Rorty, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Jane Tompkins, Stephen Toulmin, and Slavoj Z­izűek.
