Connections with Industry and the Liberal Arts: Attempts to Legitimize the Profession of Teaching Technical Writing. Bibliography of Articles and Papers in Technical Writing.
The 82 annotations in this bibliography describe papers and articles that relate technical writing to industry and the real world as well as to the liberal arts and the academic world. The citations are arranged into the following eight categories: (1) studies showing needs and demands in the real world; (2) studies of present practice as definitive; (3) descriptions of inhouse courses, team-taught courses, or case-method courses; (4) articles claiming that teachers of technical writing need experience in industry; (5) studies of professional writing to discover process, context, or deficiencies; (6) applications of theory to technical writing; (7) articles making connections with liberal arts or history; and (8) arguments that English teachers can make good technical writing teachers.
