Grassroots Literacy and the Written Record - A Textual History of Asbestos Activism in South Africa (Hardcover): John Trimbur Grassroots Literacy and the Written Record - A Textual History of Asbestos Activism in South Africa (Hardcover)

This book examines how asbestos activists living in remote rural villages in South Africa activated metropolitan resources of representation at the grassroots level in a quest for justice and restitution for the catastrophic effects on their lives caused by the asbestos industry. It follows the Asbestos Interest Group (AIG) over a fifteen-year period through its involvement in grassroots research, in legal cases and in the compensation systems for asbestos-related disease. It examines how the AIG became grassroots technicians of translocal paperwork, moving texts back and forth between periphery and center, pushing documents through the textual mazeways of the courts, medical institutions, the compensation system and various government agencies. The book addresses rhetorical mobility and the extent to which, given the AIG's position on the periphery, it has been able to enter the voices and interests of villagers into formerly inaccessible forums of deliberation and decision-making.

Solidarity or Service - Composition and the Problem of Expertise (Paperback): John Trimbur Solidarity or Service - Composition and the Problem of Expertise (Paperback)
John Trimbur
R926 Discovery Miles 9 260 Out of stock

"These essays seek to understand how institutions set boundaries between professionals and ordinary people, how ideologies organize expert and lay knowledge into cognitive and cultural hierarchies, and what the implications might be for teachers, theorists, and program administrators who believe that writing instruction should promote rhetorical agency and popular participation in public life" -John Trimbur

"Solidarity or Service: Composition and the Problem of Expertise" examines the origins, contradictions, consequences, and prospects of what it means to professionalize Composition Studies. What are the gains and losses of specialization? What values does it inculcate in faculty and graduate students? How can we best teach and effect real change among our students, our institutions, and our communities? For John Trimbur, such questions vex our understanding of "the specialist," of what it means to promote genuine rhetorical agency and meaningful and constructive participation in academic and public life. Considering this subject from a variety of scholarly perspectives, Trimbur illuminates how professional authority shapes the identities of experts, how the actual and symbolic economies of expertise play out in communities and classrooms, and how public rhetorics might renegotiate the relations between experts and lay people in the name of solidarity. Among its varied subjects, Solidarity or Service considers: - the founding of CCCC to the taxonomy wars of the 1980s - the influence of post modernism on the politics of composition - the current turn to transform composition into writing studies as an academic discipline.

Ultimately this thoughtful and provocative book asks us to extend the social mission of composition through solidarity rather than service-and to redefine and rearticulate expertise in order to realign it with popular aspiration.
