Studies in Writing & Rhetoric (SWR) Series

The CCCC Studies in Writing and Rhetoric Series (SWR), established in 1984, supports research that explores how writing and rhetoric are currently and have been historically taught, practiced, and circulated within communities, whether in colleges, workplaces, or neighborhoods, local, national, digital, or international contexts. The series also focuses on supporting a broad range of projects that accurately represent the multifarious identities of teachers, administrators, and researchers involved in writing and rhetoric, addressing the cultural, social, political, and material realities that define their work. SWR aspires to be global both in scope and reach, and is dedicated to the use of digital technologies that ensure its publications are accessible and available to a national and international audience.
