In his influential book Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate, Ernest Boyer (1990) proposed that the definition of scholarship be broadened beyond the predominant emphasis on the scholarship of discovery to encompass the scholarships of integration, application and teaching. Boyer′s formulations have sparked considerable scholarly attention, including appraisals of Boyer′s arguments by contemporary scholars and efforts to clarify the meaning of the domains of scholarship described by Boyer. This volume reviews the major scholarly works on these topics.
