Vol 1, No 1 (2013)

The symposium that launches this inaugural issue speaks to our concerns and raises new ones. The symposium call invited writers to submit short essays that addressed the current intersections between Literacy Studies and Composition and the implications of Literacy Studies research, theory, and practice for Composition Studies. Respondents were then asked to extend the conversation about issues raised or neglected in the symposium.
