In The Center Will Hold, Pemberton and Kinkead have
compiled a major volume of essays on the signal issues of
scholarship that have established the writing center field and that
the field must successfully address in the coming decade. The new
century opens with new institutional, demographic, and financial
challenges, and writing centers, 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
key pivot point in the emergence of writing centers as sites of
pedagogy and research. The volume develops themes that Harris first
brought to the field, and contributors here offer explicit
recognition of the role that Harris has played in the development
of writing center theory and practice. But they also use her work
as a springboard from which to provide reflective, descriptive, and
predictive looks at the field.
