Jason Palmeri’s Remixing Composition: A History of Multimodal Writing Pedagogy challenges the longheld notion that the study and practice of composition has historically focused on words alone. Palmeri revisits many of the classic texts of composition theory from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, closely examining how past compositionists responded to “new media.” He reveals th

Jason Palmeri's book helps both the compositionist and the rhetorical theorist see the history of the writing classroom from a perspective outside our traditional histories. In the voice of an experienced and caring writing instructor, Palmeri shows how many compositionists have always seen writing as multimodal, and new technologies are not necessarily a new trend in the teaching of composition. In the process, he considers several major thinkers in the field, as well as some more obscure textb ...more
This is a crisply written, intriguing exploration of composition's little-known history of multimodal exploration in the pre-digital era (60s, 70s, early 80s), good, bad, and ugly. A good reminder of how our institutional memories become clouded over by official histories, and full of practical (and ethical) pedagogical advice for how we might implement assignments involving aural and visual production in the writing classroom.

Palmeri's book is effective at achieving two goals: he offers a useful view of the history of new media conversations in composition studies (introducing us readers to lesser known conversations and texts in the process) while also indicating how these ideas can impact digital composing practices in the classroom. Indeed, I was glad I read this book just before I began teaching a digital composing course at my university—he offers inventional activities and ideas that are easy to put into practi ...more

This books tells a different story of the history of composition by showing how the argument about integrating multimodal composition into the classroom has been around since the beginning of composition as a discipline.

A terrific revision of the history of composition that shows how our field has always already been mulitmodal. Or to put this another way, writing teachers have been consistently concerned with the look and sound of texts, and with how words interact with images, video, and audio.

Loved this book! Really great historical perspective to re-view, re-see, re-envision the future of multimodal composing pedagogy.
I really liked the thesis that we (composition theorists) have been thinking along the lines of visual and digital rhetoric even before it looked the way it does today. Interesting applications and thorough thinking.
Adam Sprague
Useful for the history, a bit thin on pedagogical theory.
