The Technical Communicator as Advocate: Integrating a Social Justice Approach in Technical Communication
Jones, Natasha N.
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v46 n3 p342-361 Jul 2016
This article argues for the need for a social justice approach to technical communication research and pedagogy. Given previous calls by scholars in technical and professional communication (TPC) for an attention to diversity, inclusion, and equality, the author examines the place and purpose of social justice in TPC and provides useful approaches for promoting a more genuine and critical interrogation of how work in TPC impacts the human experience.
