New series – Ashgate Studies in Technical Communication, Rhetoric, and Culture

Ashgate Studies in Technical Communication, Rhetoric, and Culture is a new series, aimed at promoting innovative, interdisciplinary research in the theory and practice of technical communication, broadly conceived as including business, scientific, and health communication.

Technical communication has an extensive impact on our world and our lives, yet the venues for long-format research in the field are few. This series serves as an outlet for scholars engaged with the theoretical, practical, rhetorical, and cultural implications of this burgeoning field.

The series is edited by Professor Miles A. Kimball, from Texas Tech University.

We welcome proposals for book-length studies and edited collections involving qualitative and quantitative research and theoretical inquiry into technical communication and associated fields and topics, including:

  • user-centered design
  • information design
  • intercultural communication
  • risk communication
  • new media
  • social media
  • visual communication and rhetoric
  • disability/accessibility issues
  • communication ethics
  • health communication
  • applied rhetoric
  • the history and current practice of technical, business, and scientific communication

For more information on how to submit a proposal to this series please contact Ann Donahue, Publisher for Literary Studies.
