Pedagogically, she urges a more courageous practice, developed via metaphors of music and improvisation, and argues for "noise," excess, and performance as uniquely appropriate to the education of writers and tutors in the center.

Noise from the writing center. Utah state university press. Writing this book has often felt, to use Annie Lamott’s delicious phrase, like putting an octopus to bed. Like noise, a ailing limb is a signal, a sign frequently of distress, but also an expression of hope, of possible freedom and of rescue. I have experienced all of this while putting these ideas on paper, and it is here that I wish to acknowledge those people who have res-cued me, in all sorts of ways, during the time I’ve spent thinking, writing, and living.

In Noise from the Writing Center, Boquet develops a theory of noise and excess as an important element of difference between the pedagogy of writing centers and the academy in general. Pedagogically, she urges a more courageous practice, developed via metaphors of music and improvisation, and argues for noise, excess, and performance as uniquely appropriate to the education of writers and tutors in the center.

Though this text is ostensibly for the Writing Center crowd, I would recommend it for anyone working in higher education. i'm all for it conceptually, but the way she does it feels forced. chapter 3 – which is more of an ethnographic study – is v good though.

Noise From The Writing Center. Elisabeth Piedmont-Marton. What impresses me most about their argument is not that writing centers need to stop being so rigid and time-bound and apolitical, but that writing centers occupy a unique space in the academy-one that might encourage authentic communities of learners, writers, peer tutors, faculty and staff. The Everyday Writing Center provides a way to think about this ambition.

In Noise from the Writing Center, Boquet develops a theory of noise and excess as an important element of difference between the pedagogy of writing centers and the academy in general. Addressing administrative issues, Boquet strains against the bean-counting anxiety that seems to drive so much of writing center administration. Pedagogically, she urges a more courageous practice, developed via metaphors of music and improvisation, and argues for noise, excess, and performance as uniquely appropriate to the education of writers and tutors in the center. Personal, even irreverent in style, Boquet is also theoretically sophisticated, and she draws from an eclectic range of work in academic and popular culture -- from Foucault to Attali to Jimi Hendrix. She includes, as well, the voices of writing center tutors with whom she conducted research, and she finds some of her most inspiring moments in the words and work of those tutors.
