Sent: Wednesday, September 18, 2013 11:31 AM Thanks Steve for alerting us to this effort. One reason why there have not been more comments from R/C (Rhetoric and Composition) people on the developing new MLA list may be that posting a comment entails being a "logged-in member of MLA Commons." Many former R/C members of MLA have left the organization because of dissatisfaction with its applicability to their work. Also notice the membership of the MLA Working Group that is revising this list. Yet if one wants to get a sense of R/C's magnitude, one can check the percentage of "Writing," "Composition" and "Rhetoric and Composition" positions available in this year's MLA Job List online map: <http.rhetmap.org>. "Rhetoric, Composition, and Writing" should not be under "Language Studies" but rather should be a seventh broad thematic category, including the "Teaching of Writing."
