From the Back Cover:

Scholarship on the personal essay has focused on Western European and U. S. varieties of the form. In Traversing the Democratic Borders of the Essay, Cristina Kirklighter extends these boundaries by reading the Latin-American and Latino/a essayists Paulo Freire, Victor Villanueva, and Ruth Behar, alongside such canonical figures as Montaigne, Bacon, Emerson, and Thoreau. In this fascinating journey into the commonalities and differences among these essayists, Kirklighter focuses on various elements of the personal essay-self-reflexivity, accessibility, spontaneity, and a rhetoric of sincerity-in order to argue for a more democratic form of writing in academia, one that would democratize the academy and promote nation-building. By using these elements in their teachings and writings, Kirklighter argues, educators can play a significant role in helping others who experience academic alienation achieve a better sense of belonging as they slowly dismantle the walls of the ivory tower.

About the Author:

Cristina Kirklighter is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Tampa. She is the coeditor (with Cloe Vincent and Joseph M. Moxley) of Voices and Visions: Refiguring Ethnography in Composition.
