Crossing Borderlands: Composition and Postcolonial Studies
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungOn the surface, postcolonial studies and composition studies appear to have little in common. However, they share a strikingly similar goal: to provide power to the words and actions of those who have been marginalized or oppressed. Postcolonial studies accomplishes this goal by opening a space for the voices of "others" in traditional views of history and literature. Composition studies strives to empower students by providing equal access to higher education and validation for their writing. For two fields that have so much in common, very little dialogue exists between them. "Crossing Borderlands" attempts to establish such an exchange in the hopes of creating a productive "borderland" where they can work together to realize common goals.
