Series Editor: Michael A. Pemberton, Georgia Southern UniversityThe Across the Disciplines Books series publishes scholarly texts that explore language and discourse practices within and across disciplinary boundaries using diverse methodologies and theoretical approaches. While some volumes in the series are linked to themed issues of the online, open access, peer reviewed journal Across the Disciplines (ATD), ATD Books shares the broader mission of the WAC Clearinghouse, publishing works relevant to writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and interdisciplinary communication.
Works with a particular emphasis on WAC/WID, disciplinary language practices, praxis, and the scholarship of teaching and learning are especially welcome. For more information about submitting to this and other book series hosted by the WAC Clearinghouse, please see the Invitation to Contribute page.
The Across the Disciplines Books Series is a collaborative publication venture between the WAC Clearinghouse and University Press of Colorado. It is designed to make new books available freely on the web and in low-cost print editions.
