Abstract

We set out to explore the level to which faculty consider and explicitly discuss writing as an apprenticeship into an ideology. Due to our interactions with both students and faculty, the Writing Center is ideally situated to bring awareness of writing ideologies to the entire university campus. Additionally, the Writing Center can and should also engage in dialogue with students about the roles of identity and ideology in writing thereby enabling them to :

• approach the writing process with awareness and intention,

• be more conscious of the ideologies of their context, and

• accept or challenge those ideologies rather than being unconsciously influenced by them.
