Contents Introduction: embodying the social in writing education -- Professionals and bureaucrats -- Writing the program: the genre function of the writing textbook -- How "social" is social class identification? -- Students working -- Writing dangerously.

Since the 1980s and the "social turn" in composition studies and other.
