Foundations and Innovations in Technical and Professional Communication Series

Copublished with the WAC Clearinghouse

Because of its centrality to the professional identity of any communications-focused discipline, the workplace has for decades been a focus of practice and scholarship in technical and professional communication. The contributors to Rewriting Work examine workplace writing through the lenses of identity and changing communication practices, arguing that place can be viewed as a productive frame for understanding how technical and professional communication has changed over the last two decades. The result is a timely set of chapters that approach workplace writing through two key questions: How do we fit in? How do we adapt? The answers to these questions provide insights into the primary factors that have shaped the practices and identities of technical and professional communicators in the 21st century.

This book is also available as an open access ebook through the WAC Clearinghouse.
