This cross-disciplinary reader gives students the opportunity to read and write about significant issues across the arts and sciences and to explore how knowledge is constructed and communicated. Thirty-eight contemporary essays are preceded by introductory chapters on writing and reading and are followed by assignment sequences that juxtapose three or more essays with a central theme. The Second Edition of Making Sense presents works by well-known authors such as Annie Dillard, Gloria AnzaldĂșa, bell hooks, Lawrence Lessig, Ralph Ellison, and Nancy Sommers, as well as selections by lesser-known writers from a variety of fields. While the essays are arranged in alphabetical order, the text also offers alternative thematic and disciplinary tables of contents.
