Overview

In WRITERS WITHOUT BORDERS: WRITING AND TEACHING WRITING IN TROUBLED TIMES, Lynn Z. Bloom presents groundbreaking research on the nature of essays and on the political, philosophical, ethical, and pragmatic considerations that influence how we read, write, and teach them in times troubled by terrorism, transgressive students, and uses and abuses of the Internet. WRITERS WITHOUT BORDERS reinforces Bloom's reputation for presenting innovative and sophisticated research with a writer's art and a teacher's heart. Each of the eleven essays addresses in its own way the essay itself as one way to live and learn with others.

She has authored or edited numerous books, including COMPOSITION STUDIES AS A CREATIVE ART (1998), THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES (2008), THE ARLINGTON READER (2008), THE ESSAY CONNECTION (9th ed. 2008), and two volumes of COMPOSITION STUDIES IN THE 21ST CENTURY (1996). Her many essays have appeared in COLLEGE ENGLISH, WRITING ON THE EDGE, PEDAGOGY, and elsewhere.
