Patricia Bizzell has argued that teachers of composition, if they are going to prepare students for success in other classrooms and other contexts, cannot afford to ignore alternative forms of discourse that are appearing now in the academy. This edited collection of original essays both discusses and at times exemplifies extraordinary examples of just such alternativesdiscourses that embody new and different forms of intellectual work Together, their writings pose and answer some intriguing questions about the: use of nonstandard discourse to illustrate unconventional forms of intellectual work role of nonstandard discourse in scholarship from disciplines across the curriculum theoretical complexities of discourses defined as alternative, hybrid, mixed, or constructed relationships among communities, discourses, and linguistic standards new conditions in composition classrooms made up of more students of English as a foreign language and students using non-standard dialects teacher-student relationships within the context of alternative forms of intellectual work. Using unconventional structures and formats while acknowledging new modes and methods, this provocative volume argues eloquently for inclusion of a broader range of expression in academic writing.
