Dippre publishes new book

Ryan Dippre, assistant professor in the Department of English, has published a new book, “Talk, Tools, and Texts: A Logic-in-Use for Studying Lifespan Literate Action Development,” as part of the Practices and Possibilities Series at the WAC Clearinghouse/University Press of Colorado. Dippre’s book traces the literate action of eleven writers from ages twelve to eighty to establish a foundational infrastructure for understanding the ways literate action develops through the lifespan — how writers, in other words, develop from their first purposeful marks on a page to their last.
