Overview

Who's cheating whom in college writing instruction? This book argues that through binary privileging of the real author (the inspired, autonomous genius) over the transgressive writer (the collaborator or the plagiarist), composition pedagogy deprives students of important opportunities to join in scholarly discourse and assume authorial roles. From Plato's paradoxical dependence on and rejection of Homer, to Jerome McGann's dismissal of copyright as the hand of the dead, Standing in the Shadow of Giants surveys changes and conflicts in Western theories of authorship. From this survey emerges an account of how and why plagiarism became important to academic culture; how and why current pedagogical representations of plagiarism contradict contemporary theory of authorship; why the natural, necessary textual strategy of patchwriting is mis-classified as academic dishonesty; and how teachers might craft pedagogy that authorizes student writing instead of criminalizing it.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ventures an evaluative argument about plagiarism. Argues that the term "plagiarism" has come to describe disparate behaviors and that the inclusion of what the author calls patchwriting in the category of plagiarism denies students opportunities to become scholars. Looks at why patchwriting is associated with academic dishonesty, and the cultural work accomplished by the criminalization of patchwriting, contending that criminalization of patchwriting protects the power of the dominant culture by preventing students from practicing one of the important means by which scholars write. Surveys rhetorical practices on which inclusion of patchwriting could be based, and offers policy arguments for a positive pedagogy of patchwriting. The author is associated with Texas Christian University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
