Representations of the Field in Graduate Courses: Using Parody to Question All PositionsCollege English
AbstractThe author reports on and analyzes the inclusion of parody in her sequence of assignments for a graduate composition theory seminar. She contends that having students write parodies of particular theorists and theoretical camps enables them to gain critical leverage that they might not otherwise obtain on a field (in this case, composition studies).
