Gail Hawisher and Cynthia Selfe created a volume that set the
agenda in the field of computers and composition scholarship for a
decade. The technology changes that scholars of composition studies
faced as the new century opened couldn't have been more deserving
of passionate study. While we have always used technologies (e.g.,
the pencil) to communicate with each other, the electronic
technologies we now use have changed the world in ways that we have
yet to identify or appreciate fully. Likewise, the study of
language and literate exchange, even our understanding of terms
like literacy, text, and visual, has changed beyond recognition,
challenging even our capacity to articulate them.
As Hawisher, Selfe, and their contributors engage these challenges
and explore their importance, they "find themselves engaged in the
messy, contradictory, and fascinating work of understanding how to
live in a new world and a new century." The result is a broad,
deep, and rewarding anthology of work still among the standard
works of computers and composition study.
