Major Minors: Neglected and New Issues in Literary Studies

The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University

LSU Student Union

February 16th & 17th, 2012

Keynote Address by Meredith McGill, Rutgers University

A major form, a major author, or a major style of analysis often dominates and overshadows the lesser known and more obscure. Meanwhile, archival efforts and the expanding resources of the internet have made available works and authors otherwise inaccessible, opening study to vast materials heretofore unknown or ignored.

The teaching of writing is characterized by a wide array of practices, often cycling through popular phases or trends. When evaluating the potential effectiveness of instructional methods, many educators rely on descriptive and anecdotal publications, as the literature is replete with them. Although these publications have merit in their ability to disseminate ideas, how can faculty transcend the descriptive and the anecdotal when determining the most effective means of teaching writing?
