The 1963 Composition Revolution Will Not Be Televised, Computed, or Demonstrated by Any Other Means of Technology
Rice, Jeff
Composition Studies, v33 n1 p55-73 Spr 2005
This article challenges the rebirth narrative traditionally attributed to Composition Studies and the date 1963. By revisiting specific media-oriented moments excluded from that narrative, the article discovers important moments ignored by Composition Studies regarding technological innovation and rhetorical production. The article argues that the failure to recognize these missing moments has generated broad consequences for how Composition Studies defines writing and technology today. To work with technology and writing involves breaking out of the traditional 1963 narrative and working from the moments not yet studied.
