Making Space: Writing Instruction, Infrastructure, and MultiliteraciesJames P. Purdy and Dànielle Nicole DeVoss, editors
The spaces, places, and infrastructures of writing matter. As a result of the rapidly changing media with which we teach and research, the discipline of writing studies has reached a critical stage in the development of scholarly stances, research methodologies, and pedagogical praxes. Making Space situates space design and digital technologies as deliberate, infrastructural practice. Contributors attend to processes, practices, challenges, and conversations, as well as the pedagogical and programmatic implications of infrastructural needs and implementations and address how architectural and technological needs are met and rationalized within specific institutional contexts. Each explores ways in which new and existing spaces are renovated and/or designed to make best use of digital tools and physical spaces for multimodal, digitally mediated instruction and research-related work.
