In Writing Workplace Cultures: An Archaeology of Professional Writing, Jim Henry analyzes eighty-three workplace writing ethnographies composed over seven years in a variety of organizations. He views the findings as so many shards in an archaeology on professional writing at the beginning of the twenty-first century. These ethnographies were composed by either practicing or aspiring writers participating in a Master’s program in professional writing and editing. Henry solicited the writers' participation in "informed intersubjective research" focused on issues and questions of their own determination. Most writers studied their own workplace, composing "auto-ethnographies" that problematize these workplaces' local cultures even as they depict writing practices within them. Henry establishes links between current professional writing practices and composition instruction as both were shaped by national economic development and local postsecondary reorganization throughout the twentieth century. He insists that if we accept basic principles of social constructionism, the text demonstrates ways in which writers "write" workplace cultures to produce goods and services whose effects go far beyond the immediate needs of its clients.

Divided into three parts, the first of which provides a linguistic definition of professional documents, describing their different types and genres. This definition necessarily takes into account both the formal characteristics of these types of document (e.g. nature of linguistic units involved) and their functional goals (the way these linguistic units are used to fulfill the text’s communicative aim). The second part focuses on the mental mechanisms involved in written production in the workplace. One of the aims of a professional writer is to compose a text which can be understood. Text composition involves specific processes and strategies that can be enhanced. One way of doing this is to give the writer suitable instructions, while another is to provide him/her with a suitable writing environment. This last aspect leads us to devote the third and final section to the comprehension of written documents in the workplace. Awareness of the strategies implemented by different readers (with more or less domain expertise) in order to understand technical and professional documents can enhance the latter’s readability. *Contributions from linguists, psychologists and ergonomists from various countries ensure international scope and comprehensiveness *Bridges the gap between fundamental research into writing and reading and the issue of the efficiency of written communication in the workplace *Enables better content creation for professional writers

This volume explores how written communication is structured and functions within academic and workplace contexts, how and to what extent writing in the university is preparation for writing in the workplace, and how classroom and workplaces constitute arenas for learning to write. Working from a qualitative approach, the research reported in this volume concentrates on university disciplines concerned with professional preparation and on related work settings. The chapters capture various transitions from one rhetorical context to another; within the university; from one course to another; from university to workplace; and from one genre to another. In sequence, the chapters follow a movement outward from the classroom to the working world: chapter 1 offers an activity theory analysis of a university classroom, and chapter 10 uses genre theory to consider the process of learning a new genre in the workplace. In between, chapters provide glimpses into moments and locations that mark the transition from writing at school to writing at work. The volume marks an important step toward redefining how academic resources for work preparation should be redeployed and how workplace practices regarding writing might shift.
