This is the site of Timothy Laquintano. I am an Assistant Professor of English at Lafayette College, and I am the Assistant Director of the College Writing Program. I teach classes on writing, rhetoric, writing technologies, and writing in digital environments. I research issues of digital writing, mass authorship and ebooks. I am primarily interested in how changes to publishing technologies affect the literate activity of authors. I recently completed a research project that examined how writers experience the process of independent authorship and self-publishing. My book, Mass Authorship and the Rise of Self-Publishing, was published by University of Iowa Press in 2016. It was the recipient of the 2016 Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award.
On this site you will find my CV and a blog that is largely dormant. You can find me on Twitter and Facebook, although I do not keep social media on my phone and so I am not incredibly active.
