In an era of blurred generic boundaries, multimedia storytelling, and open-source culture, creative writing scholars stand poised to consider the role that technology-and the creative writer's playful engagement with technology-has occupied in the evolution of its theory and practice. Composition, Creative Writing Studies and the Digital Humanities is the first book to bring these three fields together to open up new opportunities and directions for creative writing studies. Placing the rise of Creative Writing Studies alongside the rise of the digital humanities in Composition/Rhetoric, Adam Koehler shows that the use of new media and its attendant re-evaluation of fundamental assumptions in the field stands to guide Creative Writing Studies into a new era. Covering current developments in composition and the digital humanities, this book re-examines established assumptions about process, genre, authority/authorship and pedagogical practice in the creative writing classroom.

Marking the tenth anniversary of the New Writing Viewpoints series, this new book takes the concept of an edited collection to its extreme, pushing the possibilities of scholarship and collaboration. All authors in this book, including those who contributed to Power and Identity in the Creative Writing Classroom, which launched the series ten years ago, are proof that creative writing matters, that it can be rewarding over the long haul and that there exist many ways to do what we do as writers and as teachers. This book captures a wide swathe of ideas on pedagogy, on programs, on the profession and on careers.

Key Issues in Creative Writing explores a range of important issues that inform the practice and understanding of creative writing. The collection considers creative writing learning and teaching as well as creative writing research. Contributors target debates that arise because of the nature of creative writing. These experts – from the UK, USA and Australia – specifically examine creative writing as a subject in universities and colleges and discuss both the creative knowledge and the critical understanding informing the subject and its future. Finally, this volume suggests ways in which addressing current issues will produce significant disciplinary knowledge that will contribute to the success of creative writing in current and future academic environments.

Moving beyond ecocomposition, this book galvanizes conversations in ecology and writing not with an eye toward homogenization, but with an agenda of firmly establishing the significance of writing research that intersects with ecology. It looks to establish ecological writing studies not just as a legitimate or important form of writing research, but as paramount to the future of writing studies and writing theory. Complex ecologies, writing studies, and new-media/post-media converge to highlight network theories, systems theories, and posthumanist theories as central in the shaping of writing theory, and this study embraces work in these areas as essential to the development of ecological theories of writing. Contributors address ecological theories of writing by way of diverse and promising avenues, united by the underlying commitment to better understand how ecological methodologies might help better inform our understanding of writing and might provoke new theories of writing. Ecology, Writing Theory, and New Media fuels future theoretical conversations about ecology and writing and will be of interest to those who are interested in theories of writing and the function of writing.

Wendy Bishop and David Starkey have created a remarkable resource volume for creative writing students and other writers just getting started. In two- to ten-page discussions, these authors introduce forty-one central concepts in the fields of creative writing and writing instruction, with discussions that are accessible yet grounded in scholarship and years of experience. Keywords in Creative Writing provides a brief but comprehensive introduction to the field of creative writing through its landmark terms, exploring concerns as abstract as postmodernism and identity politics alongside very practical interests of beginning writers, like contests, agents, and royalties. This approach makes the book ideal for the college classroom as well as the writer’s bookshelf, and unique in the field, combining the pragmatic accessibility of popular writer’s handbooks, with a wider, more scholarly vision of theory and research.

(Re)Writing Craft focuses on the gap that exists in many English departments between creative writers and compositionists on one hand, and literary scholars on the other, in an effort to radically transform the way English studies are organized and practiced today. In proposing a new form of writing he calls "craft criticism," Mayers, himself a compositionist and creative writer, explores the connections between creative writing and composition studies programs, which currently exist as separate fields within the larger and more amorphous field of English studies. If creative writing and composition studies are brought together in productive dialogue, they can, in his view, succeed in inverting the common hierarchy in English departments that privileges interpretation of literature over the teaching of writing.

This wide-ranging analysis of doctoral education in English Studies challenges readers to reconsider their assumptions about how English Ph.D. programs came to be, what purposes they serve, and what they might become--what they ought to become--in the 21st century. Section I traces the first century of English doctoral education in the American university, from its German origins to the "crisis of disciplinary and professional identity" that precipitated the 1987 Conference on Graduate Study and the Future of Doctoral Studies in English. Section II examines one programmatic response to that crisis, the State University of New York at Albany's "Writing, Teaching, and Criticism," with a particular emphasis on the program's determination to reintegrate the field's increasingly disparate specializations. Section III turns back to the broader professional and disciplinary scene to consider the implications of such a "fusion-based" curriculum: to consider why this curricular model represents the best available option for both doctoral education and the entire enterprise of English Studies. Chapters in the book are: (1) "Establishing the Tradition: 1876-1950"; (2) "Lehrfreiheit, Lernfreiheit, and the Magisterial Curriculum"; (3) "Expansion, Contraction, and the (Surp)Rise of Heterogeneity (1950-1990)"; (4) "The Crisis of Identity in English Studies and the Demise of the Magisterial Curriculum"; (5) "Albany's Ph.D. in English Studies: 'Writing, Teaching, and Criticism'"; (6) "Writing to Get Situated: Learning to Stage a Reading"; (7) "Charting Courses (1): Extended Work in a Preferred Mode"; (8) "Charting Courses (2): (Re)Combinatory Writings"; (9) "Writing beyond Coursework: The Qualifying Examination and the Dissertation"; and (10) "The Fusion-Based Curriculum for an English Studies in Transition." Contains 120 references. (RS)

This is a book about the creative dynamics that arise from the interrelation of writing, teaching writing, and ways of reading - and the scholarship and administrative issues engendered by both. To regard composition studies as a creative art is to engage in a process of intellectual or aesthetic free play, and then to translate the results of this play into serious work that yet retains the freedom and playfulness of its origins. The book is fueled by a mixture of faith in the fields that compose composition studies, hope that the efforts of composition teachers can make a difference, and a sense of community in its broadest meaning.

African-American Studies is a unique field of scholarly inquiry and critical interpretation whose intellectual foundation and development have significantly influenced other disciplines in the academy. The African-American Studies Reader is the largest and most comprehensive anthology yet undertaken in the field. A variety of perspectives are used to present the development of the discipline of African-American Studies. This volume's sixty-one articles are organized into eight sections: (I) The Discipline: Definition and Perspectives; (II) African-American Women's Studies; (III) Historical Perspectives; (IV) Philosophical Perspectives; (V) Theoretical Foundation; (VI) Political Perspectives; (VII) Critical Issues and Perspectives; and (VIII) Curriculum Development and Program Models. This comprehensive anthology includes key selections from many scholars who have made substantial contributions to the development of the discipline. They argue many different perspectives and topics relevant to the study of African American Studies as an intellectual, social, and political focus in/of higher education; they provide discussions of the intellectual and academic roots of the field; they describe the conditions that made its emergence possible; they present its theoretical, research, ideological, and philosophical paradigms; and they examine the past, present and future challenges of African-American Studies. The African-American Studies Reader is an invaluable complement to basic books in the discipline and can be used as an introductory text for graduate and undergraduate courses in the field. It provides an essential guide to enable students to understand how the field evolved, therange of perspectives it encompasses, and the challenge and future directions of African-American Studies. This outstanding collection of various perspectives in African-American Studies will be of interest to individuals new to the field as well as those already involved in research, teaching, and other aspects of African-American Studies.

In this volume, Mark Waldo argues that writing across the curriculum (WAC) programs should be housed in writing centers and explains an innovative approach to enhancing their effectiveness: focus WAC on the writing agendas of the disciplines. He asserts that WAC operation should reflect an academy characterized by multiple language communities--each with contextualized values, purposes, and forms for writing, and no single community's values superior to another's. Starting off with an examination of the core issue, that WAC should be promoting learning to write in the disciplines instead of writing to learn, Waldo proposes: *housing WAC in comprehensive writing centers independent of any other department; *using dialogue and inquiry rather than prescriptive techniques in the WAC program's interaction with faculty in other disciplines; and *phasing out writing assessment that depends on one test measuring the writing abilities of students from all disciplines. In the process of making his case, Waldo discusses tutor training, faculty consultancy, and multilayered assessment programs. In addition to presenting the theoretical and practical advantages of discipline-based WAC programs, he also offers clear and compelling evidence from his own institution that supports the success of this approach to writing instruction. Demythologizing Language Difference in the Academy: Establishing Discipline-Based Writing Programs will be of interest to writing program and WAC administrators; writing center administrators; graduate students studying composition; and educators and graduate students involved in WAC initiatives, research, and study.
