Patrick Berry coauthors Transnational Literate Lives in Digital Times
The Writing Program is pleased to announce that Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric Patrick W. Berry has recently published Transnational Literate Lives in Digital Times.
The collection, coauthored with Gail E. Hawisher and Cynthia L. Selfe, is a book-length multimodal project designed to document how people outside and within the United States take up digital literacies and fold them into the fabric of their daily lives. In it, the editors coauthor chapters with transnational colleagues from around the world in order to make clearer the rich complexity of students’ lives in this age.
According to the authors, “This research contributes to our knowledge of the impact of digital media on literate practices and also provides a basis for developing approaches for studying and teaching successful practices. The goal of the book is to suggest different and increasingly accurate ways of understanding the life histories and digital literacies of those with transnational connections, attempting to take into account local perspectives and the complex processes of globalization.”
