Abstract or Summary
  • Wendy Bishop's lively voice and scholarly contribution continue to resonate and be important in composition studies. Bishop--poet, scholar, feminist, teacher, ethnographer, and compositionist--sought to blur the lines between creative writing and composition. This thesis argues that in challenging the boundaries that exist between creative writing and composition, Bishop also challenged the field-coverage model of English studies. Bishop's extensive work in ethnography demonstrates her commitment to narrative and to the voices of marginalized populations in academia. This thesis advocates for a reconsideration of Bishop's work by illustrating connections between her work at the nexus of creative writing and composition, ethnography, and her arguments for a more inclusive English studies. It draws connections between Bishop's work and the scholarship of third wave feminist ethnographers of the same period, pointing out the ways that others have successfully used creative writing to build bridges between marginalized and dominant cultures in academia. These connections re-contextualize Wendy Bishop's contribution to composition studies and creative writing and point to ways that her work continues to be important. The conclusion looks at some of the ways that Bishop's legacy continues to be carried forward by important scholars in both composition and creative writing studies.
