Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines liberatory learning practices in the contemporary composition classroom.  

Emancipatory Movements in Composition provides an overview of the four major disciplines that have, for the last ten years, influenced and guided the direction of composition studies. Drawing on contemporary social and rhetorical theory, this is the first cultural studies text deeply informed by classical rhetoric, feminism, and postcolonial studies. Readable and engaging, it merges theory and pedagogy, providing a rubric for understanding critical pedagogy, neosophistic rhetoric, service-learning, and ethnographic research. This self-reflexive and critical book examines the ethical dimensions of partaking in liberatory learning practices in the contemporary composition classroom.

“This is a comprehensive and valuable study of the movements in critical and feminist pedagogy of the last five to ten years, a time when the work on the possibilities for teaching has exploded. This book is both lucid and polemical, useful and readerly.” — Dale M. Bauer, author of Feminist Dialogics: A Theory of Failed Community and coeditor of Feminism, Bakhtin, and the Dialogic

Andrea Greenbaum is Assistant Professor of English at Barry University. She is the author of Insurrections: Approaches to Resistance in Composition Studies, also published by SUNY Press.
