Composition Studies


This short piece reflects on the 50th anniversary of the journal Composition Studies, discussing the need for more scholarship on Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the journal. This piece holds up an article by Aja Martinez on CRT in Composition Studies as an example of the work that the journal and field need to continue to engage with, especially in light of the events of 2020 and the Black Lives Matter movement.
