These essays explore the intriguing cross-disciplinary results of written composition pursued with an ecological and environmental awareness. The contributors (American academics and two graduate students in English, writing, or composition) provide essays on their own experiences of teaching eco-composition to undergraduates, or their theories on the usefulness of the medium, from feminist, postmodernist, and environmentalist perspectives. Weisser teaches English at the U. of Hawaii, Hilo; Dobrin teaches English at the U. of Florida. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Examines current trends in universities toward more environmentally sound work, explores the intersections between composition research--that is, discourse studies--and ecostudies, and offers possible pedagogies for the composition classroom. Never before have the intersections between ecotheory and composition studies in theory and pedagogy been addressed in this much depth or detail. As universities become increasingly concerned with issues of the environment within academic disciplines across the spectrum, this book brings together a diverse group of prominent voices to discuss the development of ecocomposition and its possibilities, and to argue for a greening of composition studies through which to engage the world in which we live.About the Author:
