Composition, Literacy, and Culture

Composition, Literacy, and Culture

The Composition, Literacy, and Culture series was established in 1989. It publishes in composition and rhetoric, literacy, and culture; in the history of writing, reading, and instructional practice; the construction of literacy and letters; and the relations between language and gender, ethnicity, race, or class. The goal of the series is to bring together scholarship that crosses traditional boundaries. The editors welcome investigations that step outside the usual forms and outlines of academic inquiry.
