Abstract:The three sites I have chosen to focus on--composition classrooms, a corporate software publisher, and a community network--follow my own scholarly progression. All three sites illustrate that to question subjectivity involves an engagement with the multiple institutions that not only shape technology usage, but also construct the possible subject positions we can inhabit at the close of the mechanical age. I argue that we need to challenge traditional narratives of self by encouraging collaborative inquiry aided by technologies.
