Peripheral Visions for Writing Centers aims to inspire a re-conception and re-envisioning of the boundaries of writing center work. Moving beyond the grand narrative of the writing center—that it is solely a comfortable, yet iconoclastic place where all students go to get one-to-one tutoring on their writing—McKinney shines light on other representations of writing center work.
Dr. Grutsch McKinney is an Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Composition at Ball State University where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses and directs the Writing Center. Her research focuses writing center studies, writing research, and composition pedagogy.
