voice and also reading them through the lens of ‘text’ or not-voice”
(“Reconsiderations: Voice in Writing Again: Embracing Contraries,”
College English, November 2007). Elbow contends that in taking this
approach not only in discussions of voice but in our scholarship more
generally, we will “be wiser in our scholarly thinking and writing” and
will be “released from dead-end critical arguments that are framed by the

Dr Tim McKenzie

Critical Thoughts: Recovering Higher Education

What is the vocation of the university in the twenty-first century? In an
era of departmental closures, performance based research funding and
strategic management, the primary purpose of universities and the core

Learning seems a distant memory rather than a future target.
