English Composition as a Happening


Abstract
What happened to the bold, kicky promise of writing instruction in the 1960s? The current conservative trend in Composition is analyzed allegorically by Geoffrey Sirc in this book-length homage to Charles Deemer's 1967 article, in which the theories and practices of Happenings artists (multi-disciplinary performance pioneers) were used to invigorate college writing. Sirc takes up Deemer's inquiry, moving through the material and theoretical concerns of such pre- and post-Happenings influences as Duchamp and Pollock, situationists and punks, as well as many of the Happenings artists proper. With this book, already a cult classic, began a neo-avant-garde for Composition studies. Winner of the Ross W. Winterowd Award for most outstanding book in Composition theory.
