I am co-editor on an edited collection about social media entitled Social Writing/Social Media: Pedagogy, Presentation, and Publics with WAC Clearinghouse’s Perspectives on Writing book series. Open Access and free to download.
Social Writing/Social Media: Publics, Presentations, and Pedagogies examines the impact of social media on three writing-related themes: publics and audiences, presentation of self and groups, and pedagogy at various levels of higher education. The contributors to this collection urge readers to pay attention to an undertheorized aspect of writing online—the acts of composing that occur specifically in social-media spaces. Organized in three sections—social media and public audiences; social media and presentation; and social media and pedagogy—it builds on previous explorations of the role of multimodality in composition studies by extending ongoing conversations that have asked readers to expand notions of literacy in the twenty-first century. By addressing the wide range of composing activities that take place in social media and the rich variety of genres, audiences, stylistic choices, and pedagogical possibilities, this collection offers an important contribution to our understanding of pedagogy and practice in social media spaces.
My co-edited special issue “Because Facebook: Digital rhetoric/social media” (2015) was published in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy and was well recieved.
