The editors of WRITING IN KNOWLEDGE SOCIETIES provide a thoughtful, carefully constructed collection that addresses the vital roles rhetoric and writing play as kwledge-making practices in diverse kwledge-intensive settings. The essays in this book examine the multiple, subtle, yet consequential ways in which writing is epistemic, articulating the central role of writing in creating, shaping, sharing, and contesting kwledge in a range of human activities in workplaces, civic settings, and higher education. WRITING IN KNOWLEDGE SOCIETIES helps us conceptualize the ways in which rhetoric and writing work to organize, (re-)produce, undermine, dominate, marginalize, or contest kwledge-making practices in diverse settings, showing the many ways in which rhetoric and writing operate in kwledge-intensive organizations and societies.
