Exploring Composition Studies: Sites, Issues, and Perspectives

Dr. Kelly Ritter (English) is co-author of the recent book, Exploring Composition Studies:  Sites, Issues, and Perspectives (Utah State University Press). Its purpose is to serve as an introduction to the teaching of writing to graduate students and new instructors. The book is a compilation of essays by English and composition scholars who explore, according to one review, “the field as an interdisciplinary discipline.”  Some of the topics include different levels and types of writing, the value of writing centers, and the value of writing-across-the-curriculum programs. Each author discusses his/her topic in relationship to other areas of composition studies and to issues and controversies that are common to them all.
