Professor Torres and Peter Coco on Web Writing in Anthropology
Posted on September 18, 2013
Professor M. Gabriela Torres and Peter Coco have submitted a paper entitled "Curation in Writing: Using a "Building" and "Breaking" Pedagogy to Teach Culture in the Digital Age" for open peer review in a digital book-in-progress, Web Writing: Why and How for Liberal Arts Teaching and Learning, under contract with Michigan Publishing. The volume is edited by Jack Dougherty, Jason B. Jones, Dina Anselmi, Christopher Hager and Tennyson O'Donnell and it explores why online writing matters for liberal arts education and illustrates how faculty and students are currently engaged in this work across multiple campuses.
Beginning September 16th, 2013, over twenty essays will be publicly available in Trinity College's Web Writing for online commentary by four expert reviewers (commissioned by the publisher) and audiences at-large. By encouraging feedback on individual submissions and the volume as a whole, the editors aim to make the peer review process more transparent and to provide authors with developmental feedback from readers before revising selected drafts for the final manuscript. The finished book will be published in two formats: print-on-demand (for a fee) and open-access digital (for free).
