Over the last decade, colleges and universities have begun to pay significant attention to "multimodal rhetoric" --rhetoric that uses not just words, but a wide range of compositional elements, including still images, moving images, charts, graphs, illustrations, animations, layout schemes, colors, music, ambient noises, and other media components. This book explores how multimodal rhetoric may prompt foundational changes in writing centers, which have proven themselves, over the last several decades, to be a highly effective means of providing peer-based support for writers. Bringing together the insights and experiences of ten researcher-practitioners working in a diverse range of institutional contexts, the chapters collected here explore the transformations potentially involved in this shift to multimodality, including changes in the way centers configure space, the way they allocate resources, the way they train peer consultants, and the way they interact with other units on campus and with communities beyond campus. Theoretical exploration is balanced with discussions of pragmatic concerns that emerge from contributors' lived experiences. To confront the intellectual and practical challenges of integrating multimodal rhetoric into writing center work, contributors draw not only on writing center theory and the broader field of composition and rhetoric, but also on an eclectic mix of theoretical frameworks taken from other fields, including actor network theory, design, and property law. --Book Jacket.

Peripheral Visions for Writing Centers aims to inspire a re-conception and re-envisioning of the boundaries of writing center work. Moving beyond the grand narrative of the writing center—that it is a solely comfortable, yet iconoclastic place where all students go to get one-on-one tutoring on their writing—Grutsch McKinney shines light on other representations of writing center work. Grutsch McKinney argues that this grand narrative neglects the extent to which writing center work is theoretically and pedagogically complex, with ever-changing work and conditions, and results in a straitjacket for writing center scholars, practitioners, students, and outsiders alike. Peripheral Visions for Writing Centers makes the case for a broader narrative of writing center work that recognizes and theorizes the various spaces of writing center labor, allows for professionalization of administrators, and sees tutoring as just one way to perform writing center work. Grutsch McKinney explores possibilities that lie outside the grand narrative, allowing scholars and practitioners to open the field to a fuller, richer, and more realistic representation of their material labor and intellectual work.

The disciplinary triad of open-access, multimodality, and writing center studies presents a timely, critical lens for discussing academic publishing in a moment of crucibilic change, where rapid technological advancements force scholars and institutions to question what is produced and “counts” as academic writing. Using historiographic, quantitative, and qualitative analysis, Open-Access, Multimodality, and Writing Center Studies sees writing center scholarship as a microcosm of many of the larger issues at play in the contemporary academic publishing landscape. This case study approach reveals the complex, imbricated ways that questions about publishing manifest both within the content of journals, and as related to academics’ perceptions as signifiers of disciplinary visibility, identity, and transformation. More than just reaffirming the conventional wisdom about these changes in publishing—that these shifts are happening and we do not always know how to pinpoint them—Open-Access, Multimodality, and Writing Center Studies suggests that scholars in all fields, compositionists, and writing center practitioners be conscious of the ways they are complicit in maintaining barriers to accessibility and innovation.

Writing Studio Pedagogy (WSP) breaks from the tradition of teaching and responding to writing in traditional ways and moves the teaching and learning experience off the page and into engaging spaces in multiple ways, which can enhance the composing process. Through this collection, scholars interested in rethinking approaches to teaching, writing pedagogy, and innovative learning will find new ways to challenge their own understandings of space, place, and collaboration. WSP involves an attention to space and place in the development of rhetorical acts by focusing on the ways in which they enhance pedagogy. This book takes a unique opportunity to return to pedagogy as the foremost priority in any learning space. Educators might preference WSP for its emphasis on student-centeredness by creating productive interactions, intersections, and departures that arrive from prioritizing learning. WSP acknowledges the centralized role of students and teachers as co-facilitators in learning and writing. These threads are intentionally broad-based, as the chapters contained in this book speak to the complexity of WSP across institutions.

Putting a multiliteracies framework at the center of the world language curriculum, this volume brings together college-level curricular innovations and classroom projects that address differences in meaning and worldviews expressed in learners’ primary and target languages. Offering a rich understanding of languages, genres, and modalities as socioculturally situated semiotic systems, it advocates an effective pedagogy for developing learners’ abilities to operate between languages. Chapters showcase curricula that draw on a multiliteracies framework and present various classroom projects that develop aspects of multiliteracies for language learners. A discussion of the theoretical background and historical development of the pedagogy of multiliteracies and its relevance to the field of world language education positions this book within the broader literature on foreign language education. As developments in globalization, accountability, and austerity challenge contemporary academia and the current structure of world language programs, this book shows how the implementation of a multiliteracies-based approach brings coherence to language programs, and how the framework can help to accomplish the goals of higher education in general and of language education in particular.

This dissertation examines the use of visual imagery, objects, alphabetic texts, and rhetorical and physical space within Kent State University's May 4 Visitors Center (M4VC) and asserts the value of multimodal composition in mediating for audiences uncertain histories such as the events on May 4, 1970. The M4VC exists to inform and contextualize the May 4, 1970 shootings, when Ohio National Guardsmen fired bullets into a crowd of student protesters and bystanders, killing four and wounding nine. On the grounds outside of the M4VC, the space where the 1970 shootings occurred and accompanying multimodal ensembles offer an immersive, historical experience for visitors. I analyzed the multimodalities presented to audiences in both the interior museum site and the outdoor grounds where the shootings took place. Additionally, I examined an archived implementation document that denotes anticipated interactions between visitor and institution. Ultimately, my research emphasizes the following: 1) Alphabetic text serves as the underlying mediator that contextualizes all other modes in multimodal ensembles; 2) Audiences make meaning from multimodal ensembles as they enact literacy practices prompted by the institution and foregrounded in alphabetic texts throughout the museum; 3) Alphabetic texts mediate for audiences the articulations of the museum composers; 4) Multimodality can serve as an effective means to negotiate the tension that comes with memorializing uncertain histories; and, 5) The curation of the May 4 rhetorical space offers an effective means to mediate tensions that arise from composing uncertain histories.

NEW MEDIA THEORY Series Editor, Byron Hawk From the beginning, rhetoric has been a productive and practical art aimed at preparing citizens to participate in communal life. Possibilities for this participation are continually evolving in light of cultural and technological changes. THE AVAILABLE MEANS OF PERSUASION: MAPPING A THEORY AND PEDAGOGY OF MULTIMODAL PUBLIC RHETORIC explores the ways that public rhetoric has changed due to emerging technologies that enable us to produce, reproduce, and distribute compositions that integrate visual, aural, and alphabetic elements. David M. Sheridan, Jim Ridolfo, and Anthony J. Michel argue that to exploit such options fully, rhetorical theory and pedagogy need to be reconfigured. Rhetorical concepts such as invention, context, and ethics need to be transformed, which has important implications for the writing classroom, among other sites of rhetorical education. Sheridan, Ridolfo, and Michel suggest an expanded understanding of the ancient rhetorical concept of kairos (the opportune moment) as a unifying heuristic that can help theorists, teachers, and practitioners understand, teach, and produce multimodal public rhetoric more effectively. In this expanded sense, kairos includes considerations of genre and dissemination through material-cultural contexts. Ultimately, they argue that culture itself is at stake in our understanding of multimodal public rhetoric. Important cultural categories such as race, class, gender, sexuality, and place, are produced and reproduced not just through the dynamics of language but through the full range of multimodal practices. DAVID M. SHERIDAN is an assistant professor in Michigan State University's Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, where he teaches courses on writing, creativity, technology, and media. He also directs the RCAH Language and Media Center. His previous publications include articles in JAC, Enculturation, and Computers and Composition. He co-edited, with James Inman, Multiliteracy Centers: Writing Center Work, New Media, and Multimodal Rhetoric (Hampton, 2010). Under the sponsorship of MSU's Writing in Digital Environments (WIDE) Research Center, Sheridan is working with others to develop a game called INK-a multiplayer virtual world designed to function as a rich environment for public rhetorical practices. In 2012 Sheridan was the recipient of MSU's Teacher-Scholar Award. JIM RIDOLFO is Assistant Professor of Composition and Rhetoric at the University of Cincinnati. He received his PhD in 2009 from the Michigan State University Rhetoric and Writing program, where he worked for six years at the Writing in Digital Environments Research Center. His work has appeared in Ariadne, Journal of Community Informatics, JAC, Enculturation, Journal of Community Literacy Studies, Pedagogy, Kairos, and Rhetoric Review. He is currently a 2012 Fulbright Middle East and North Africa Regional Research Scholar and is working on his second book. He lives with his partner Janice Fernheimer and their two pet bearded dragons, Electra and Salsa. ANTHONY J. MICHEL is currently Chair of the English Department at Avila University in Kansas City, where he teaches courses in American literature and composition and rhetoric. His research interests are in alternative rhetorics, social activism, new media, and writing theory. He has written on a variety of subjects, including Julie Dash's film Daughters of the Dust, hip hop culture in the writing classroom, and the role of new media in social movements. His articles and chapters have appeared in JAC, Enculturation, and in several edited collections.

Internationalizing Business Education is a carefully edited selection of twenty-three essays written by leading educators of international business. this exhaustive treatment of the various dimensions of business school internationalization is divided into seven parts: Rationale and Conceptual Foundation; Historical Perspectives; Faculty Development; Curriculum; Institutional Strategies; Center/Institute Models, and Linkages. This work evolved from the Roundtable on Internationalizing the Business Schools and Faculty held in June 1991 at Michigan State University. The conference brought together business faculty and administrators from North America, Europe, and Australia who shared their perspectives and experiences, and brainstormed about approaches to internationalizing business education. These experts present their views in this volume. In the 1990s, businesses continue to face the challenge of staying competitive in an increasingly global market. Business schools need to internationalize their programs to remain competitive. Until now, information about alternative strategies was not widely available. This book provides business educators, public policymakers, scholars of educational practices, and business executives with the tools they need to compete globally.

What is multicultural education? Why is it important in education today? The authors of Multicultural Teaching define multicultural education broadly to include all types of diversity as they generate an inclusive curriculum that meets the individual needs of each student. Bringing theory and practice together in a student-centered curriculum, they encourage reflection and discussion through working with Reflective Teaching Portfolios and Cooperative Learning Groups at the end of each chapter. The text is based on a strong model focusing on Esteem, Empathy, and Equity. Future teachers are guided to consider the implications of such topics as language diversity, the academic achievement gap, and racism as they plan lesson designed to develop a community of learners in their classroom. Features new to the seventh edition include: New chapter on the academic achievement gap. Detailed chronology of events leading to the position of multicultural education today At the end of each chapter, the section "Growing a Professional Library" includes carefully selected resources that students will find helpful as future teachers.

This book examines museum education from the perspective of 33 authors from the field, resulting in a collective vision elevating the function of education within museums. A variety of perspectives offered throughout the collection of essays push further thinking and encourage robust debate. Both museum practitioners and university-level students will find the contents of this book useful as it delves into theory, but it also informs on exemplary models of practice. Museum education has developed much over the past 20 years, yet there remains an opportunity to advance its position within art museums with effective practice and the creation of successful programs.
