Originally published in a 1984 issue of "College English," Stephen North's article "The Idea of a Writing Center" has over the years been much cited in writing center scholarship. Even so, this scholarship as a whole did not proceed to gain much presence in "CE" and other broadly-oriented composition journals. Reconsidering North's piece, the authors argue for greater attention now to writing centers as sites for potentially valuable scholarly inquiry. (Contains 8 notes.)
