Opening Spaces: Writing Technologies and Critical Research Practices
Ablex Publishing Corporation, 1997 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 215 pages
Opening Spaces: Writing Technologies and Critical Research Practices argues for a "postcritical research methodology" (a theoretical frame merging two often opposed inquiry paradigms) and applies this frame to the study of computers and writing: the book opens a space where theoretical scholarship and empirical research can interact. Sullivan and Porter view research as a set of critical and reflective practices that should be sensitive to the rhetorical situated-ness of participants and technologies and that should operate as a form of political and ethical action. The authors revisit the issue of the ethics and politics of research, but do so from the frame of postmodern rhetorical theory and feminist methodology.
