The University of Pittsburgh Press is pleased to announce new editors for the Composition, Literacy, and Culture series: Aja Martinez and Stacey Waite.
The press owes a debt of gratitude to the outgoing series editors. David Bartholomae and Jean Ferguson Carr established the CLC series in 1989. Under their leadership, the series helped to define a field. They offered these parting words:
“We proposed this series to the Press in 1989, over 30 years ago, and we are proud of the substantial list of books in our catalog and of what those books have meant to our field and to the profession. This decision to retire came as part of our general retirement from teaching and from the university. We are very grateful to Joshua Shanholtzer and all of the professional staff at Pitt Press, to all those readers and reviewers who gave their time, care, and attention to the manuscripts we were selecting for publication, and to the generations of readers who have read and reviewed and promoted our books. We look forward to continuing to follow the success of the series.”
The new editors look forward to continuing their legacy of publishing the best scholarship in literacy and composition.
