Download e-book for iPad: Creative Writing and the New Humanities by Paul Dawson

By Paul Dawson

This e-book examines the institutional heritage and disciplinary way forward for artistic writing within the modern academy, having a look way past the perennial questions 'can writing be taught?' and 'should writing be taught?'.
Paul Dawson lines the emergence of artistic writing along the hot feedback in American universities; examines the writing workshop relating to theories of creativity and literary feedback; and analyzes the evolution of artistic writing pedagogy along and according to the increase of 'theory' in the US, England and Australia.
Dawson argues that the self-discipline of artistic writing constructed as a chain of pedagogic responses to the long-standing 'crisis' in literary experiences. His polemical account presents a clean viewpoint at the significance of inventive writing to the emergence of the 'new humanities' and makes an incredible contribution to present debates in regards to the function of the author as public intellectual.
