Abstract:This study reconsiders the category of personal writing by contextualizing and linking it with the field of Performance studies in order to examine its potential critical function in the field of Composition. I examine the history of personal writing in English Studies and the possible expansion of its definition through the application of Performance studies methodology. I extend the scope of personal writing and offer valuable tools to critically analyze and theorize its application in Composition scholarship and pedagogy.
