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.
