Bringing Transparency to Big Data, Composition, and Peer Review

We look into the story behind the forthcoming edited collection Composition and Big Data. The editors took a unique approach to peer review: they engaged the contributing authors in a radical approach to collaboration and cooperation that crossed boundaries, knocked down barriers, and yielded astounding results. In this episode of Room 42, learn how big data is shaping our scholarship, what we need to do now to prepare, and how a collaborative collection of authors can highlight the ethical and practical considerations of applying data analytics to the field of Composition and Rhetoric.
