Issue 2.1: Special Issue – Cultural Rhetorics, Writing Centers, and Relationality: Constellating Stories

Spring 2018

In this special issue of The Peer Review, we look at the ways cultural rhetorics can inform writing center practices and research. We have chosen to focus on two specific methods of a cultural rhetorics approach: story and relationships. The following articles draw from and demonstrate these methods in practice with a focus on how culture and knowledge becomes co-constituted within writing center spaces. We have chosen to arrange this issue in three sections, each with a specific focus. The first section demonstrates the ways in which story and relationships become intertwined within a cultural rhetorics methodological frame work. The second section focuses on the impact stories have in understanding research data and the cultures of specific contexts. The third section focuses on relationships and the value building reciprocating relationships has within writing center spaces. Combined, these sections demonstrate the types of contributions cultural rhetorics can bring to writing center theory and practice.

Fall 2017

Issue 1.1

Spring 2017

In our first peer-reviewed issue of TPR, we have articles that cover wide range of topics and methods including an empirical study about the diversity among writing center directors, an theory and practice piece that analyzes how writing center handbooks shape staff culture, a theoretical piece that engages difference by offering strategies for working with multilingual writers drawn from feminist rhetoric and applied linguistics, an cross-disciplinary, case study about the writing center as multi literacy center, and an empirical/ autobiographical piece written by recent middle school graduates about the value of their writing center work. We also have a book review of The Working Lives of New Writing Center Directors.

Fall 2015

In this issue, TPR’s first editorial team operationalizes our vision and mission. Instead of offering a bulleted list of submission guidelines, we elected to demonstrate our advice to potential contributors within our own scholarships. We discuss collaborative scholarship, approaches to writing center research (both RAD and qualitative methods), moving from presentation to publication, designing multimodal texts, and understanding reviewer feedback.
