Students in first-year composition courses across the country discuss and write about touchy subjects like race, class, gender and religion. This book focuses on the latter, offering a pragmatic way of working with religious belief as a subject of study in the secular setting of the university classroom. Based on the work of American pragmatists like Charles Peirce, William James and John Dewey, this approach considers what religious belief does in the world--the tangible consequences of believing or not believing--and steers away from questions concerning God's existence or benevolence. Religion is viewed as a social and political force affecting human interaction. Drawing on years of experience teaching composition in Chile and the United States, the author explores real-world events such as Chile's 1973 coup d'etat, the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and the daily interplay of religious beliefs among family members. Reading and writing assignments--geared for believers and nonbelievers alike--are provided, including student essays that make various arguments about religion.

Authors Shannon Hengen and Ashley Thomson have assembled a reference guide that covers all of the works written by the acclaimed Canadian author Margaret Atwood since 1988, including her novels Cat's Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, and the 2000 Booker Prize winner, The Blind Assassin. Rather than just including Atwood's books, this guide includes all of Atwood's works, including articles, short stories, letters, and individual poetry. Adaptations of Atwood's works are also included, as are some of her more public quotations. Secondary entries (i.e. interviews, scholarly resources, and reviews) are first sorted by type, and then arranged alphabetically by author, to allow greater ease of navigation. The individual chapters are organized chronologically, with each subdivided into seven categories: Atwood's Works, Adaptations, Quotations, Interviews, Scholarly Resources, Reviews of Atwood's Works, and Reviews of Adaptations of Atwood's Works. The book also includes a chapter entitled 'Atwood on the Web,' as well as extensive author and subject indexes. This new bibliography significantly enhances access to Atwood material, a feature that will be welcomed by university, public, and school librarians. Margaret Atwood: A Reference Guide 1988-2005 will appeal not only to Atwood scholars, but to students and fans of one of Canada's greatest writers.
