Clashes in the Contact Zone: Student, Faculty, and Administrative Resistance to Intersectional Pedagogies in the Writing Classroom

Gina Marie Lawrence, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This dissertation is a study of rhetoric and composition instructors around the country who use intersectional pedagogy as a way to introduce students to issues of class, race, sexuality, and gender in order to work toward a more just society. Instructors using this approach often encounter resistance from students and administrators, and this project will help instructors respond to this resistance in thoughtful, rather than reactionary, ways.
