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


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.


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.
