New Book on Transient Literacies in Action

  • Aug 26, 2020

Cover of Transient Literacies in ActionTransient Literacies in Action: Composing with the Mobile Surround, by Stacey Pigg, draws on qualitative fieldwork across a coffeehouse and learning commons to trace how 22 writers practice transient literacies with their phones and laptops while engaging in composing activities that range from seminar papers to amateur video game production. Reading across these cases, the book offers a glimpse into how composers navigate complicated atmospheres of ambient sociability, in which they integrate multiple social channels simultaneously by monitoring, participating in, and disengaging from social contact.
