Beyond Postprocess offers a vigorous, provocative
discussion of postprocess theory in its contemporary profile.
Fueled by something like a fundamental refusal to see writing as
self-evident, reducible, and easily explicable, the contributors
rethink postprocess, suggesting that there is no easily defined
moment or method that could be called postprocess. Instead, each
contribution to this collection provides a unique and important
example of what work beyond postprocess could be.
Since postprocess theory in writing studies first challenged
traditional conceptions of writing and the subject who writes,
developments there have continued to push theorists of writing in a
number of promising theoretical directions. Spaces for writing have
arisen that radically alter ideological notions of space, rational
thinking, intellectual property and politics, and epistemologies;
and new media, digital, and visual rhetorics have increasingly
complicated the scene, as well.
Contributors to Beyond Postprocess reconsider writing and
writing studies through posthumanism, ecology, new media,
materiality, multimodal and digital writing, institutional
critique, and postpedagogy. Through the lively and provocative
character of these essays, Beyond Postprocess aims to provide a
critical site for nothing less than the broad reevaluation of what
it means to study writing today. Its polyvocal considerations and
conclusions invest the volume with a unique potential to describe
not what that field of study should be, but what it has the
capacity to create. The central purpose of Beyond
Postprocess is to unleash this creative potential.
