Hypertextual border crossing: students and teachers, texts and contexts

Computers and Composition Volume 16, Number 3, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


Collaborative hypertext writing in the college classroom can underwrite a pedagogy rooted in the cultural hybridity bell hooks has argued is central to progressive educational methodology. This article offers a narrative of the collaborative creation of a HyperCard hypertext called the E.A.R., and describes how the ideas developed in that project were adapted into a first-year composition course. In exploring the creation of a collaborative hypertext, we hope to gain insight into both the larger aims of the border crossings central to hooks’ ongoing project and the more local goals of hypertext pedagogy.
