Composition in the Twenty-First Century: Crisis and Change. Eds. Dr. Lynn Z. Bloom B.A. M.A. Ph.D., Dr. Donald A. Daiker B.A. Ph.D., Dr. Edward M. White B.A. M.A. Ph.D.

This is a collection of 16 essays focused on the unstable position of composition within the academic curriculum. Some of the ideas explored are what implications will forces outside of the classroom have on the teaching of composition in the new century, how will faculty and administrators identify and address these issues and what policies and practices should be proposed to meet these challenges. Because of its widespread investigation into the future role of composition within the classroom, this will have some impact on how new media is employed and understood within this same setting.
