Center Will Hold
In The Center Will Hold, Pemberton and Kinkead have compiled amajor volume of essays on the signal issues of scholarship that haveestablished the writing center field and that the field mustsuccessfully address in the coming decade. The new century opens withnew institutional, demographic, and financial challenges, and writingcenters, in order to hold and extend their contribution to research,teaching, and service, must continuously engage those challenges.Appropriately, the editors offer the work of Muriel Harris as a keypivot point in the emergence of writing centers as sites of pedagogy andresearch. The volume develops themes that Harris first brought to thefield, and contributors here offer explicit recognition of the role thatHarris has played in the development of writing center theory andpractice. But they also use her work as a springboard from which toprovide reflective, descriptive, and predictive looks at the field.
