ATTW Series in Technical and Professional Communication: Technical Communication After the Social Justice Turn

 

This is the first scholarly monograph marking the social justice turn in technical and professional communication (TPC). Social justice often draws attention to structural oppression, but to enact social justice as technical communicators, first we must be able to trace daily practice to the oppressive structures it professionalizes, codifies, and normalizes.

Beschrijving ATTW Series in Technical and Professional Communication: Technical Communication After the Social Justice Turn

This is the first scholarly monograph marking the social justice turn in technical and professional communication (TPC). Social justice often draws attention to structural oppression, but to enact social justice as technical communicators, first we must be able to trace daily practice to the oppressive structures it professionalizes, codifies, and normalizes. Technical Communication After the Social Justice Turn moves readers from conceptual explorations of oppression and justice to a theoretical framework that allows for the concepts to be applied and implemented in a variety of practical contexts. It historicizes the recent social justice turn in TPC scholarship, models a social justice approach to building theories and heuristics, presents scenarios that illustrate how to develop sustainable practices of activism and social justice, and proposes action items for the field. Its commitment to coalition-building, inclusivity, and socially just practices of citation and activism will support scholars, teachers, and practitioners not only in understanding how the work of technical communication is often complicit in oppression but also in recognizing, revealing, rejecting, and replacing oppressive practices.
