Folklore Infantil


Sutton-Smith, B., J. Mechling, et al. . [e-Book] Children’s Folklore: A Source Book. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 1999

Texto completo


A collection of original essays by scholars from a variety of fields—including American studies, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sociology, and education—Children’s Folklore: A Source Book moves beyond traditional social-science views of child development. It reveals the complexity and artistry of interactions among children, challenging stereotypes of simple childhood innocence and conventional explanations of development that privilege sober and sensible adult outcomes. Instead, the play and lore of children is shown to be often disruptive, wayward, and irrational. The contributors variably con-sider and demonstrate «contextual» and «textual» ways of studying the folklore of children. Avoiding a narrow definition of the subject, they examine a variety of resources and approaches for studying, researching, and teaching it. These range from surveys of the history and literature of children’s folklore to methods of field research, studies of genres of lore, and attempts to capture children’s play and games.

La investigación sobre la escritura: un paradigma contextualista para la retórica y la composición




Johanek, C.. [e-Book] Composing Research: A Contextualist Paradigm for Rhetoric and Composition. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 2000

Texto completo


In Composing Research, Cindy Johanek offers a new perspective on the ideological conflict between qualitative and quantitative research approaches, and the theories of knowledge that inform them. With a paradigm that is sensitive to the context of one’s research questions, she argues, scholars can develop less dichotomous forms that invoke the strengths of both research traditions. Context-oriented approaches can lift the narrative from beneath the numbers in an experimental study, for example, or bring the useful clarity of numbers to an ethnographic study.

Estudios de Composición como Arte Creativo: Enseñanza, Escritura, Investigación y Administración



Bloom, L. (1998). [e-Book]  Composition Studies as a Creative Art: Teaching, Writing, Scholarship, Administration. Utah: Utah State University, University Libraries, 1998

Texto completo


This work focuses on the creative dynamics that arise from the interrelation of writing, teaching writing, and ways of reading—and the scholarship and administrative issues engendered by it. To regard composition studies as a creative art is to engage in a process of intellectual or aesthetic free play, and then to translate the results of this play into serious work that yet retains the freedom and playfulness of its origins. The book is fueled by a mixture of faith in the fields that compose composition studies, hope that efforts of composition teachers can make a difference, and a sense of community in its broadest meaning.

Composición y escritura en la lengua inglesa



Sirc, G. (2002). [e-Book]  English Composition as a Happening. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 2002

Texto completo


From the Introduction: «Contemporary Composition is still inflected by the epistemic turn taken in the 1980s, convincing me that we need to remember what we’ve forgotten—namely, how impassioned resolves and thrilling discoveries were abandoned and why. I’d like to retrace the road not taken in Composition Studies, to salvage what can still be recovered… I want to inspect the wreckage, in order to show what was the promise of the Happenings for Composition, as well as the huge gray longueur of its pale replacement, Eighties Composition. In so doing, I hope to begin a reconfiguration of our field’s pre- and after history.» What happened to the bold, kicky promise of writing instruction in the 1960s? The current conservative trend in composition is analyzed allegorically by Geoffrey Sirc in this book-length homage to Charles Deemer’s 1967 article, in which the theories and practices of Happenings artists (multi-disciplinary performance pioneers) were used to invigorate college writing. Sirc takes up Deemer’s inquiry, moving through the material and theoretical concerns of such pre- and post-Happenings influences as Duchamp and Pollock, situationists and punks, as well as many of the Happenings artists proper.

Las claves de la escritura creativa


Bishop, W. and D. Starkey. [e-Book]  Keywords in Creative Writing. Utah Utah State University, University Libraries, 2006

Texto completo


Wendy Bishop and David Starkey have created a remarkable resource volume for creative writing students and other writers just getting started. In two- to ten-page discussions, these authors introduce forty-one central concepts in the fields of creative writing and writing instruction, with discussions that are accessible yet grounded in scholarship and years of experience. Keywords in Creative Writing provides a brief but comprehensive introduction to the field of creative writing through its landmark terms, exploring concerns as abstract as postmodernism and identity politics alongside very practical interests of beginning writers, like contests, agents, and royalties. This approach makes the book ideal for the college classroom, and unique in the field, combining the pragmatic accessibility of popular writer’s handbooks, with a wider, more scholarly vision of theory and research.

Estudio Estilístico en Composición y Retórica.


Butler, P. [e-Book]  Out of Style: Reanimating Stylistic Study in Composition and Rhetoric. Utah : University Libraries, 2008

Texto completo


Butler applauds the emerging interest in the study of style among compositionists, arguing that the loss of stylistics from composition in recent decades left it alive only in the popular imagination as a set of grammar conventions. Butler’s goal in Out of Style is to articulate style as a vital and productive source of invention, and to redefine its importance for current research, theory, and pedagogy. In so doing, he offers an important revisionist history of the field by reading it specifically through the canon of style. In addition, Butler argues that it is through style that scholars in the field can find a needed entry into public discussions about writing. Scholars in composition know that the ideas about writing most common in the discourse of public intellectuals are egregiously backward. Without a vital approach to stylistics, Butler argues, writing studies will never dislodge the controlling fantasies of self-authorized pundits in the nation’s intellectual press. Composition must answer with a public discourse that is responsive to readers’ ongoing interest in style but is also grounded in composition
