RIGHT TO INFORMATION IN WRITING PEDAGOGY: INDIVIDUAL VS. COMMUNAL-RELATIONAL AGENCY METAPHORS IN THE TELEOLOGY OF COMMUNICATION

M. O'Mara Shimek

Boston University (UNITED STATES)
This research argues that Right to Information (RTI) provides useful anthropological-philosophical insights into the advantages of communal-relational agency metaphors for the teaching of the writing process as opposed to individual-agency conceptualizations used for exploring writing in students. From an RTI perspective, where information and communication are understood as human rights, communal-relational agency metaphors give meaning to the relationship between the communicator, the communicative act, and the larger human community because it presents a teleology that places communication at the service of the person and the community and thus more directly supports the common good.
