dc.descriptionUT Tyler's Writing Center Director examines post-modernist consulting, bucking the status quo, and how the "micromoment" affects the university at large. Writing center scholars have published several landmark books researching the unique work that is possible in writing centers, such as Nancy Grimm’s text, Good Intentions: Writing Center Work for Postmodern Times. These texts strengthen a field of study that has in the past (and still today) struggled to legitimize itself. According to Grimm, this legitimacy movement is wrapped around positivist notions of what counts as knowledge at the modernist university, mostly quantitative objective research that emphasizes generalizable conclusions. These conclusions are often large in scope, avoiding specific local references that are difficult to generalize to greater populations.en_US
