Some interesting ideas from Holly at the Community College English bloghttp://cce.typepad.com/# Most writing, save those scribbled grocery lists and journal entries, is meant to be communication and thus a public performance of sorts, but does that mean the writer must choose subject matter of civic importance?# Suppose the writer’s interests are more inner-directed, her curiosity piqued more by psychological or philosophical questions rather than political or sociological issues. To what extent is this emphasis on “large-scale” events (the way so much history focuses on battle campaigns rather than the details of everyday life) a “masculine” sort of bias?
