Abstract

This study provides an overview of the archival turn in Composition Studies and demonstrates how the values articulated and explored by Composition scholars can be applied to the creation of an archive in a college English department. The surge of interest in archival research in the field of Composition Studies recognizes the archive not only as a source but as a subject from which one cal fill the gaps of history with new perspectives and discoveries, and exploring these gaps benefits both theorists and practitioners.
