CWPA Plenary: “Sustainable Infrastructures & the Future of Writing Studies”

citation

Ball, Cheryl E. (2015, July 18). Sustainable infrastructures & the future of writing studies. Plenary paper delivered at the Council of Writing Program Administrators Conference, Boise, ID.

abstract

In order to sustain our digital publishing efforts in writing studies, we need to attend to three forms of infrastructure: scholarly, social, and technical. This talk brings this framework together through a microhistory from our field that details a failed publishing movement. The focus on technical infrastructures as the oft-missing element in writing studies’ consideration of digital publishing is not just a scholarly and disciplinary problem; it is also a teaching concern.

abstract
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy has been publishing digital media scholarship since 1996, and each new medium and digital technology offers authors changing ways that they can make meaning through visual, aural, linguistic, and other modes of communication. As editor of Kairos, it is my responsibility to understand the often cutting-edge and genre-bending moves authors make in their submissions to this rhetoric and composition journal. I will present a few examples of submissions (historical and recent) that required the staff and editorial board members to re-negotiate the ever-changing boundaries between ‘typical’ digital scholarship and “new media scholarship,” exemplified by the relationship between the visual and the linguistic (i.e., written).
