Writing Centres, Writing Seminars, Writing Culture: Writing Instruction in Anglo-Canadian Universities brings together insights into the history of how writing has been taught in Canadian universities alongside profiles of how specific university academic units teach writing today. Engineering courses, writing centers, and writing programs are all represented, each one providing different models of how writing can be taught within their specific academic context. The editorsÕ introduction, an essay surveying current practices throughout Canadian universities, and the Afterword by Russ Hunt suggest ways of making sense of the tangled garden that is the teaching of writing in Canadian universities.
