This edited collection of original essays both discusses and at times exemplifies extraordinary examples of just such alternatives-discourses that embody new and different forms of intellectual workTogether, their writings pose and answer some intriguing questions about the: use of nonstandard discourse to illustrate unconventional forms of intellectual workrole of nonstandard discourse in scholarship from disciplines across the curriculum theoretical complexities of discourses defined as alternative, hybrid, mixed, or constructed relationships among communities, discourses, and linguistic standardsnew conditions in composition classrooms made up of more students of English as a foreign language and students using non-standard dialectsteacher-student relationships within the context of alternative forms of intellectual work.Using unconventional structures and formats while acknowledging new modes and methods, this provocative volume argues eloquently for inclusion of a broader range of expression in academic writing.
