Reader: Essays in Reader-Oriented Theory, Criticism, and Pedagogy

_Reader_, a semi-annual publication begun in 1976, provides an
interdisciplinary forum for exploring theoretical, critical and
pedagogical practices in literature, reading research, gender
studies, rhetoric, composition studies, visual representation,
and cultural studies. Its interdisciplinary perspective provides
members of divergent and seemingly irreconcilable fields bridges
to explore the numerous junctures that bind us as teachers, critics,
and theorists. Subscribing to _Reader_ provides each of us connections
to other scholars that can enhance our own work.

Past issues have included: "The Writing/Reading Relationship:
Implications of Recent Research in Cognition for Reading and
Writing" by Richard Beach and JoAnne Liebman-Klein; "Theory and
Research in Reading: Insights from Socio-psychologists" by Robert F.
Carey; Patrocino P. Schweickart's "Add Gender and Stir" and Elisabeth
Daumer's "Gender Bias in the Concept of Audience"; "A Response Pedagogy
for Noncanonical Literature" by John Clifford; "Reading and Writing
Culture: A Group Memoir" from Joseph Trimmer; and "Reading the Right
Thing" by Joseph Harris.

Fall 1992 will be a special issue on Computers and Reading with
commentaries on how hypertext raises the need for new reading
techniques and theory, and several articles on collaborative
computer-assisted responses to literature.

Spring 1993 will feature responses to Joan Didion's _Salvador_ and
commentary on visual responses to literature.
