Abstract:

In Getting Restless, Nancy Welch asks compositionists to rethink what they mean by "revision," urging them to examine long-held beliefs about teacher-student relations and writing practices. Drawing primarily on feminist and psychoanalytic theories, she considers how revision can be redefined as a process of disorientation: an act of restlessness with received meanings, familiar relationships, and disciplinary or generic boundaries, a practice of intervening in the meanings and identifications of one's text and one's life.
