I am really honored to have a chapter that came out recently, edited by the amazing editorial team of Angela Haas and Michelle Eble. Contributing a chapter with Kenneth Walker on the subject of contract grading for social justice, drawing on folks like Asao Innoue, Jerry Farber, and folks in Tech Comm, I love that my work is featured along side dynamic contributors. This collection is compelling and necessary scholarship, especially given the moment when social justice and the humanities are needed.
From the website:
Drawing on social justice methodologies and cultural studies scholarship, Key Theoretical Frameworks offers new curricular and pedagogical approaches to teaching technical communication. Including original essays by emerging and established scholars, the volume educates students, teachers, and practitioners on identifying and assessing issues of social justice and globalization.
The collection provides a valuable resource for teachers new to translating social justice theories to the classroom by presenting concrete examples related to technical communication. Each contribution adopts a particular theoretical approach, explains the theory, situates it within disciplinary scholarship, contextualizes the approach from the author’s experience, and offers additional teaching applications.
The first volume of its kind, Key Theoretical Frameworks links the theoretical with the pedagogical in order to articulate, use, and assess social justice frameworks for designing and teaching courses in technical communication.
