Description

[Book Description]

Writing Changes moves beyond restrictive thinking about composition to examine writing as a material and social practice rich with contradictions. It analyzes the assumed dichotomy between writing and multimodal composition (which incorporates sounds, images, and gestures) as well as the truism that all texts are multimodal. Organized in four sections, the essays explore

  • alphabetic text and multimodal composition in writing studies

  • specific pedagogies that place writing in productive conversation with multimodal forms

  • current representations of writing and multimodality in textbooks, of instructors’ attitudes toward social media, and of writing programs

  • ideas about writing studies as a discipline in the light of new communication practices

Bookending the essays are an introduction that frames the collection and establishes key terms and concepts and an epilogue that both sums up and complicates the ideas in the essays.
