The Rhetoric of Christian Sexual Morality
Joseph Monti - Author

This book is about current issues in sexual morality, the Christian church, and moral argument in late modernity.
"The author achieves a synthesis that is rare and difficult.

Gender and Culture in Acts of Composing
Mary Ann Cain - Author

"Cain has conducted an original research project, one that made me hold my breath at times as I wondered if she would be able to complete such an unusual narrative in a believable manner. She has impressively explored an underexplored area, looking at the writing workshop to discover what is hidden, covert, or not sanctioned. This book illuminates an area that most of us take for granted, assuming we all know how workshops actually function. Her ...(Read More)

The author draws a clear distinction between industria...(Read More)
 
 
Literacy as Social Exchange
Literacy as Social Exchange (October 1994)
Intersections of Class, Gender, and Culture
Maureen M. Hourigan - Author

Literacy as Social Exchange examines the intersection of culture and literacy education. In particular, it explores the roles that class, race, ethnicity, and gender play in students' learning to negotiate the conventions of academic discourse. It argues that recent literacy scholarship has tended to isolate class, gender, and culture as discrete, marginalizing factors, but such isolation may unintentionally silence voices from non-Western,...(Read More)
