    Naming What We Know examines the core principles of knowledge in the discipline of writing studies using the lens of “threshold concepts”—concepts that are critical for epistemological participation in a discipline.

  • Rewritingby Joseph Harris

    Utah State University Press 2007; US$ 19.00

    "Like all writers, intellectuals need to say something new and say it well. But unlike many other writers, what intellectuals have to say is bound up with the books we are reading . . . and the ideas of the people we are talking with." What are the moves that an academic writer makes? How does writing as an intellectual change the way we work from... more...

  • Ghosts And The Japaneseby Michiko Iwasaka; Barre Toelken

    Utah State University Press 1994; US$ 20.95

    The Japanese have ambivalent attitudes toward death, deeply rooted in pre-Buddhist traditions.

  • First Person Squaredby Kami Day; Michele Eodice

    Utah State University Press 2003; US$ 16.95

    In (First Person)2, Day and Eodice offer one of the few book-length studies of co-authoring in academic fields since Lunsford and Ede published theirs over a decade ago. The central research here involves in-depth interviews with ten successful academic collaborators from a range of disciplines and settings. The interviews explore the narratives... more...

  • Rearticulating Writing Assessment for Teaching and Learningby Brian Huot

    Utah State University Press 2003; US$ 18.95

    Brian Huot's aim for this book is both ambitious and provocative. He wants to reorient composition studies' view of writing assessment. To accomplish this, he not only has to inspire the field to perceive assessment--generally not the most appreciated area of study--as deeply significant to theory and pedagogy, he also has to counter some common... more...

  • Alaska's Daughterby Elizabeth Pinson

  • All That Divides Usby Elinor Benedict

    Utah State University Press 2003; US$ 9.95

    Although the poems in this collection are not narrative, they do present a narrative, gradually unspooling the tale of the poet's rebel aunt, who left the family "to marry a Chinaman" in the 1930s. It's an old story, full of poignancy, mystery, family pride, and doubt. When the aunt returns to die, the poet, now grown, discovers in herself the need... more...

  • Borgo Of The Holy Ghostby Stephen Mcleod

    Utah State University Press 2003; US$ 10.95

  • Building The Goodly Fellowship Of Faithby Frederick Quinn

    Utah State University Press 2004; US$ 17.95

    As this critical, independent history, which ends with the ordination of one of the first women bishops in the nation, shows, Utah Episcopalians have had, despite small numbers, a remarkably eventful and significant history, which included complex relations with Mormons and Native Americans, early experience of women and homosexuals in the ministry,... more...
