"It's a conversation, not a lecture"
Literature tries to free itself from primary orality. Orality and Literacy defines as the “technologizing of the word” the process of developing a new relationship between language and thought.
Produce, publish and disseminate content is now easy. The real issue is actually comitting to active public engagement.
Traditionnaly, academics produced a document (a thesis, an article, a book) and then sent it to someone else to review it, edit it, publish it, distribute it. It’s an unidirectional mode of operation. Now a content is published online, easily made available, but what brings the process to fruition is engagement: the work of scholarly authorship does not end with publication, that is just the beginning. The difficult part is to engage new audience and participation. The audience is not passive anymore. Should it be rather called “impact” ?
I’m willing to concede that poor grammar and spelling are not necessarily indicative of sub par intelligence (for example, I’m not sure if sub par is that, subpar, or maybe sub-par, and I like to think I’m not a complete moron), but it is still really distracting when you get your syllabus and there are major errors. Seriously, prof, I do expect better from you, especially when, after a major mistake in your syllabus, you’re suggesting that all semi-intelligent people are going to have interesting comments and questions in every class, and anybody who doesn’t talk is an idiot.
Moral of the story: I hate when our grades have “participation” factored into them. Also, grammar is important.
