Jeff Grabill is a Professor of Rhetoric and Professional Writing and Co-Director of the Writing in Digital Environments (WIDE) Research Center at Michigan State University. He is interested in the knowledge work of citizens, users, workers, and students within organizational contexts. Grabill has published two books on community literacy and agency and articles in journals like College Composition and Communication, Technical Communication Quarterly, Computers and Composition, and English Education.
Jeff Grabill’s work on digital communication concerns standards in fundamental ways. Standards literally impact how digital communication gets made, from issues of intellectual property to the boundaries of hardware and software. My research also concerns community engagement with respect to science and risk communication and interested in how standards are made and communicated to others.
