Book Information


Title: Technology and English Studies
Subtitle: Innovative Professional Paths
Edited By: James A. Inman
Beth L. Hewett

In scholarship about technology and English studies, there are a number of
first-person narratives that suggest what may be termed "traditional"
professional paths. That is, they chronicle the positive influence of a
particular technology, class, professor, or publication, and suggest that
it inspired a distinct and rewarding professional path. What is missing is
the rest of the story--alternate ways that individuals have come to do work
in technology and English studies and analysis of what this means for paths
others might pursue. "Technology and English Studies: Innovative
Professional Paths" meets this need.

As a forerunner in addressing professionalization across the domains that
comprise technology and English studies, this book will prove foundational
for many readers with non-traditional or otherwise alternate backgrounds
who are working out what professional paths might be available to them.

It is an important professional development resource for professors,
instructors, and graduate students across the field of English studies,
including rhetoric and composition, computers and writing,
computer-assisted language learning, literary and linguistic computing,
literary studies, English education, technical communication, linguistics,
writing centers, second-language education/ESL, and creative writing.
