Writing Changes: Alphabetic Text and Multimodal Composition

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, on instructors' attitudes toward social media, and on 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.

Reviews

"This kind of collection on multimodal composition is long overdue."—Duane Roen, Arizona State University



"I am excited by the contribution this volume makes to what we know, think, and teach about multimodality and to the relation between alphabetic text and multimodal forms of communication."—Neal Lerner, Northeastern University
