Description

This book serves as an anthology for the small, but growing body of research in archival practice in the field of rhetoric and composition. The anthology is divided into four broad categories: “general information for using archives,” which serves as an introduction to the challenges, and possibilities of entering into a digital research environment; “accessing the archives” suggests appropriate research methodologies that composition and rhetoric should employ in emergent spaces; “working with/through archival material” which has a series of essays that aim to help researchers understand, and contextualize digital research, and ideas for extending the research they conduct in archives beyond digital spaces; and “creating archives as research process” in which three essays serve as examples of how to approach the creation and management of a digital archive in rhetoric and composition.
