'new media'? How does WAC approach disciplinarity? Why is expertness important to understand? WAC and Plant Bio What do we know about science? WAC/new media/science? Plant Bio: SCIENCE Disciplinary: Pedagogy:

http://www.ionomicshub.org/home/PiiMS Most of science never gets used. Gene sequencing,
elaborate (failed) experiments, loads of information
that doesn't get the right result. Recent movements
have begun gathering that data.

Fields are emerging that are dedicated to asking global data
dumps for specific information... Data mining

between the representation
and the thing is literal and direct, though not one to one.
Still, with the advent of the photo, the human lens was
removed allowing for pure seeing.
Medium/Media in the middle

rooted. “…knowledge is always an engaged material practice and never a disembodied set of ideas. Knowledge is embedded in projects; knowledge is always for, in many senses, some things and not others, and knowers are always formed by their projects, just as the shape of what they can know. Such shaping never occur in some unearthly realm; they are always material and meaningful interactions of located humans and nonhumans—machines, organisms, people, land, institutions, money, and many other things. Because scientific knowledge is not ‘transcendent,’ it can make claims about material being that are neither reducible to opinion nor exempt from interpretation. Those solid claims and material beings are irreducibly engaged in cultural practice and practical culture; i.e. in the traffic in meaning and bodies, or acts of love, with which all things begin. Semiosis is about the physiology of meaning-making; science studies is about the behavioral ecology and optimal foraging strategies of scientists and their subjects; and primatology seems to me to be about the historically dynamic, material-semiotic webs where important kinds of knowledge are at stake.” (emphasis original)(Haraway, pg 199-200, 2004) ECAC: Reiss, Selfe, Young (1998) Karen Lunsford (2009) Stockton (1994) To understand how other disciplines are using the surg in
computer assisted "media" to create knowledge in new ways... Genisis of Research: The academy as a whole fails to create meaningful
connections between the disciplines, that would not only
facilitate writing, but also make for more engaged, critical citizens. emergent communication technologies have the potential to be game changing when it comes to the academy, but we don't know if they are.
