British-born Benjamin Latrobe is best known to American history for his design of the United States Capitol, as well as Baltimore's cathedral. After settling first in Virginia, then relocating to Philadelphia, Latrobe spent much of his later life in Washington, D.C., where he was hired as Surveyor of the Public Buildings of the United States. Latrobe worked in Greek revival and Gothic Revival styles, and was highly interested in urban planning, particularly as it was affected by public health. Covering the years 1796 to 1820, The Journal of Latrobe is a ""collection of observations and a record of facts."" The work describes his life and projects in Virginia, Philadelphia, and finally New Orleans, where he died of the yellow fever he caught while working on a waterworks project there. These are the acute observations of an ""architect, naturalist and traveler, "" with commentary on social mores and manners, as well as the development of cities and towns, particularly Washington, D.C., in a booming post-war America.

For over a hundred years, the journal of the Irish poet Thomas Moore (1779-1852) was thought to have been destroyed. In 1967 the manuscript was found in the archives of the Longman Publishing House in London. This edition, to be published in six volumes, reveals the essential Moore and introduces the reader to the daily, personal record of Moore's life from 1818 to 1847. The journal begins as an accurate rendering of the author's daily life and ends as a tragic reflection of a failing memory and a deteriorating mind.

This book explores the gendered historical and social contexts and discursive traditions that have characterized journals and diaries in academic discourse. The tension between the term "journal," which has a variety of positive public and scholarly connotations, and the term "diary," which is currently understood as a feminized, trivial, and confessional kind of writing inappropriate for school, is a critical part of the problem. This book uses the developing and shifting notions of diary and journal to explore several critical questions about the larger relations between gender, language, canonicity, and academic discourse.

Educators across the grades and across the curriculum have long recognized the usefulness of journals to help student writers. But what about basic writers, learning-disabled students, and nontraditional and returning students? One of the values of journal writing is its accessibility, yet no one has seemed to consider how at-risk students might benefit. With this new collection, the first of its kind, Susan Gardner and Toby Fulwiler provide much-needed advice. The authors of these essays are all experienced teachers of at-risk writers, both at two- and four-year colleges. They know the at-risk students they are describing. Some readers will recognize the students as "basic" writers in basic writing courses. Others will find chapters written by writing center directors who serve a variety of students we might term as "at risk." There are also chapters from educators who work specifically with Deaf students, ADHD students, and learning-disabled students. Each one describes uses of the journal and the adjustments to the assignment that make the journal such an accessible and instructive writing genre.
