Professor Thom Swiss contributes to The Routledge Handbook of Participatory Cultures

SwissT-pref10.jpgCurriculum and Instruction Professor, Thom Swiss recently contributed a chapter for The Routledge Handbook of Participatory Cultures to be published in May 2012. The Handbook investigates new entries for participation in new media, addressing concepts such as fan-generated fiction and entertainment, citizen journalism and transmedia storytelling. Swiss' chapter, "Collaborative Time-based Textuality," explores
the character of online text and how one can moderate and influence readers' experiences with text through the use of time.

Additionally, two new poems by Swiss,"In Situ" and "Lament," appear in the current issue of the journal, Literary Imagination from Oxford University Press, and a new media piece, "Shy Boy," with text by Swiss will be the subject of analysis at a panel discussion at the 2012 Modern Language Association Convention in January.
