Notes

Paul Butler recently argued in "Style and the Public Intellectual: Rethinking Composition in the Public Sphere" that composition studies suffers from a distinct lack of public intellectuals who can speak knowledgeably and effectively to public audiences about what we do. Although not his primary argument, for Butler, the turn to publics is essential because, otherwise, composition studies will continue to be defined by other people with public profiles but no tie to composition studies' intellectual heritage (55-58). Butler's conception of public intellectuals nods to a complicated relationship between academics, compositionists to see publics aligned in opposition to the goals and expectations of intellectual workers. Compositionists often recognize the value of public engagement, but also often find the movement from the academic sphere into the public one to be problematic.
