Sample text

Postprocess theorists do acknowledge that we have a set of linguistic expectations—solidified through experience and being taught how to behave as writers and readers—that help us construct meaning. Teachers, of course, spend their time with students helping them develop the tools to understand and meet these expectations through practice with various writing styles, assessments of the requirements of certain social and work situations, and so forth. But “postprocess” theory also speaks to the character of the relation between writer and reader that must exist for communication to succeed in developing a relationship between them.

In Toward a Phenomenological Rhetoric, I characterize this activity as “profession,” or a “way of engaging with experience that expands rather than restricts the possibilities for expressing its meaning” (1998, 99). This activity of profession involves three deliberate perspectives: First, intense reflection, a perceptual exercise through which one attends to the world with open acceptance; second, reasoned receptivity, a cognitive assessment through which one reconciles lived experience in the objective world with rhetorical interpretation of it; and third, conceptual regeneration, a process through which one’s expressions simultaneously transform the world as seen and the “I” within it.

A prototypical example of this deep-seeded conservatism can be found in Helen Foster’s Networked Process: Dissolving Boundaries of Process and Post-Process (2007), a book that represents a conciliatory attempt to normalize postprocess within the very composition studies rubric against which it reacts. Unfortunately, this means that Foster’s book presents a disciplinarily conservative project that works to preserve the authorized narrative of the field. Foster’s project sets out to find common ground for process and postprocess composition theories, wanting to locate a point of “stasis” in order to allow both to operate harmoniously within the disciplinary boundaries of composition studies.
