Abstract:

"We have inherited the notion of play as the opposite of work. This has led us to experience work as alienated labor and to think of adult play as irrelevant and inconsequential. This way of thinking has informed writing instruction and is even expressed in the way English departments are structured. Albert Rouzie's At Play in the Fields of Writing offers English studies a new way of looking at the role of play in student composing and the place of playfulness in college writing classrooms. Rouzie moves us beyond the work/play divide by offering the concept of serio-ludic rhetoric, discourse that straddles the fence between serious and playful activity and functions as a force for critique and change in social educational settings.

Serio-ludic rhetoric defines play with language and images as a synthesis of work and play that is rhetorically productive, can help overcome student alienation, and can help heal the split between rhetoric and poetic in English studies. The book explores this concept through analysis of student and instructor electronic projects and synchronous discussion conferences, demonstrating that serio-ludic discourse is often creative, productive, and rhetorically invigorating. At Play in the Fields of Writing offers a vision of the writing classroom that can help instructors find ways of making a place for productive play in their courses and professional lives."--Jacket.
