0 Reviews
In this book, Bruce Horner provides a cultural materialist critique of discourse on work in composition. Each chapter traces the ways in which one of the defining terms of composition--work, students, politics, academic, traditional, and writing--operates as a site for competing constructions of composition's identity.
