Building a Community, Having a Home: A History of the Conference on College Composition and Communication Asian/Asian American Caucus documents how Asian/Asian American teacher-scholars have emerged within and contributed to a number of areas in rhetoric and composition, as well as the National Council of Teachers of English and the Conference on College Composition and Communication in diverse and substantial ways from the 1960s to contemporary times. Contributors reflect on the spaces where the writing of history and the potential for community coalesce, ultimately demonstrating how a history that acknowledges the alliances, unexpected connections and coalitions, gaps, setbacks, and silences is necessary for sustaining a scholarly community that is persistently open to re/vision. Building a Community, Having a Home works toward these goals by including archival research and interviews with founding members alongside a bibliography of works in Asian/Asian American rhetoric and composition, and scholarly essays illustrating the contributions Asian/Asian American scholars have made to the history of rhetoric, world Englishes, writing program administration, and more. At the same time, the collection interweaves cross-generational perspectives and emerging work as a way of illustrating how institutional action, as well as the scholarly work of Asian/Asian American teacher-scholars has been circulated and carried forward over time.
