Elbow and Bartholomae and Emerson (note to self: get a copy of this)

This looks interesting, especially the Emersonian angle.

Wiley, Mark. “Writing in the American Grain: Peter Elbow’s and David Bartholomae’s Emersonian Pedagogies of Empowerment.” Writing Instructor, v9 n1-2 p57-66 Fall-Win 1990.

ABSTRACT: Argues that, although Peter Elbow’s and David Bartholomae’s pedagogies attempt in different ways to authorize students to write, both rely on the experience and resistance to language as the primary means of empowerment. Suggests that Elbow and Bartholomae must continually defer authority, keeping it suspended between experience and its expression. (RS)
