What Do Writing Majors Need to Know?: Contextualizing a Discipline’s Conversations for Undergraduates


This review examines Susan Miller’s Norton Book of Composition Studies in the context of the undergraduate writing major. Miller’s anthology provides a thorough snapshot of the field of composition, representing the impressive scope of composition studies with 101 unabridged works of composition history, research, theory, and practice. Although this anthology was compiled to support instruction in both undergraduate and graduate classes, the reviewers suggest that undergraduates and some graduate students may require more contextual information about the collected works to better understand the major themes, issues, struggles, and successes of the field.
