Notes from the Walter J. Ong Archive

John Paul Walter

Walter J. Ong, SJ, Center for Languge, Media, and Culture
Saint Louis University

  My research and teaching interests include the history and theory of composition studies and rhetoric; orality-literacy studies and the media ecology of oral, manuscript, print, and digital culture; medieval literature and language; and rhetorical, social, and cognitive approaches to memory. What unifies these diverse subjects is my overarching interest in an historicist and comparative analysis of traditions.

  I serve on CCCC Committee on Computers in Composition and Communication, the editorial board of Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology. Additionally, I was a processing archivist of the Walter J. Ong Collection at Saint Louis University.

  Machina Memorialis, is my academic and commonplace blog, and Notes from the Walter J. Ong Archive was a commonplace blog for my work with the Walter J. Ong Collection.
