WAC, WID, ECAC, CAC, CXC, LAC — VAC? Incorporating the Visual into Writing / Electronic / Communication / Learning Across the Curriculum

Guest editor: Joan A. Mullin, University of Texas at Austin

Disciplines across the curriculum increasingly respond to the visual culture into which our students graduate—and from which they come. This issue explores the use of visuals to teach, to construct knowledge, and to deconstruct knowledge; specific disciplinary expectations concerning visuals as end products/forms of communication; the production, changes and/or effects visual technologies (from paper to screen) have had on our field; the intersections between/among visual/written/spoken pedagogies and productions across disciplines/interdisciplines; ways in which brain activity dedicated to writing intersects/affects/changes visual production.
