May 1970

by Matthew Boedy

The events of May 1970 changed higher education in many ways. This book argues those events also played a significant, yet largely forgotten role in the rise of composition studies as an academic discipline. The central tension of our field - the relationship between student agency and teacher authority in writing pedagogy - comes to the forefront in May 1970 and its aftermath. This tension remains and so this book hopes to apply the lessons of May 1970 to today.
