English Professor Carolyn Segal’s Writings to Appear in Multiple Anthologies
English Professor Carolyn Segal’s classic essay on students and their colorful excuses for missed homework assignments, “The Dog Ate My Disk and other Tales of Academic Woe,” which was originally published in the Chronicle of Higher Education is 2000, has recently been reprinted in a pair of Bedford/Saint Martin’s Press composition anthologies. These include the recently released fifth edition of Real Writing with Readings: Paragraphs and Essays for College, Work and Everyday Life, where it will appear for the first time, and a repeat printing in the third edition of Making Sense: A Real-World Rhetorical Reader, which will be available in February. It has also been selected for publication for the first time in the second edition of Focus on Writing: Paragraphs and Essays, which is slated for release later this year.
In addition, an essay published in the Chronicle of Higher Education in 2006 titled “Copy This,” which addresses student plagiarism, has been selected for publication in the first edition of Practical Argument, which is also slated for release later this year.
