Two Recent Pubs… From Lil’ Ol’ Me

Posted: August 17th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Bookshelf, Research, Rhetoric, Self-Promotion, Teaching, Writing | No Comments »

I would like to bring my dear readers’ attentions to a couple of recent publications penned by mine own hands (or, if you prefer, “typed,” although in one case, a good bit of video editing was involved… you know what? why are you insisting on me being so literal? “Penned” is a perfectly good bit of figurative flourish). One is a smaller piece in the current edition of Kairos. “Keeping It Real: The Spaces and Places of the Digital Citizen” is a short film (with some write-up) chronicling my digital media composing course’s participation in a student philanthropy program from two years ago. The other piece, “Whose Body? Looking Critically at New Interface Designs,” is a chapter in an edited collection entitled composing (media) = composing (embodiment), and it argues that we need to develop a critical stance for analyzing the next-gen crop of user interfaces in order to avoid repeating the same old practices of marginalizing and ignoring certain types of bodies (I just re-read it, and I think I actually make sense in this one, if I do say so myself). Here’s me enjoying the collection, hot off the presses:
