WEARING THE RAINBOW TRIANGLE: THE EFFECT OF OUT LESBIAN TEACHERS AND LESBIAN TEACHER SUBJECTIVITIES ON STUDENT CHOICE OF TOPICS, STUDENT WRITING, AND STUDENT SUBJECT POSITIONS IN THE FIRST-YEAR COMPOSITION CLASSROOM

by Mahaffey, Cynthia Jo

Abstract (Summary)
This dissertation examines out lesbian teachers in the college composition classroom from a viewpoint of feminist teacher research and “queer geography”. Employing composition history, the ideological erasure of lesbian teacher subjectivities in the composition classroom is outlined. Case studies of lesbian teachers and students in lesbian teachers’ composition classrooms indicate in a preliminary way that students’ choice of writing topics, student writing and student subject positions are affected by the presence of out lesbian composition teachers.
