Welcome to Lore, an e-journal for adjuncts and graduate students who teach writing at colleges and universities. This journal is designed to provide a forum for sharing knowledge, building communities, and voicing concerns about what happens in the classroom. Lore is a site for exploring and discussing experimental pedagogies and for engaging in lively, personal reflections about professional matters that inspire and irritate. It is also a place in which instructors may air grievances about how the academy relies upon yet undervalues their expertise. Lore is edited by assistant professors, adjuncts, and graduate students who have been teaching composition for a number of years and who care about composition as both a philosophical discipline and a lived experience. We invite and welcome your participation in on-going dialogues.
