Synopsis

Cornell University has a long tradition of excellence in writing and is home to one of the oldest academic writing programs. At the core of Cornell's approach is the idea that writing well is a concern that is not limited to one department or field, but is best approached in a multidisciplinary way. Thus, writing is taught in areas as varied as neurobiology, political science, and Near Eastern studies, among others. In the chapters of "Local Knowledges, Local Practices", the faculty of this innovative program candidly share their visions, pedagogical techniques, and sometimes surprising insights. The voices collected in this volume encourage faculty and administrators from all disciplines and all institutions to reclaim responsibility for teaching the field-specific writing they want their students to learn and affirm the importance of good writing as integral to learning in all fields and at all levels of the curriculum.
