   schema:description "The changing nature of the workforce and the increasing presence of technologies in composition studies promise to affect not only the ways we work, but the very shape of the discipline. This volume takes on the challenge of thinking about the intersections of work, technology, and composition studies in ways that are unprecedented. These areas interact in numerous and significant ways, yet the focus is often on the concepts in isolation from one another. Authors in this collection explore technology and labor issues across a range of institutional locations to focus on working as scholars, administrators (of writing programs, writing across the curriculum programs, assessment programs), teachers, workers held accountable to bureaucrats, and gendered and raced workers, and the future roles compositions will adopt in the university and how technology affects those identities. The chapters address the nature of composition labor in a technological society, the new geographies of composition, variety of identity and agency that are enabled and denied, academic labor outside the classroom and academy, and how virtuality impacts labor. They provide varied perspectives on what issues are [of] import and alert researchers and teachers that a serious consideration of labor and writing technologies are needed to expand notions of what composition studies can and must be. --Publisher's description."@en ;
