Work in Progress

Palmeri is currently working on collaborative, born-digital book project entitled 100 Years of New Media Pedagogy. In this book, Palmeri and his collaborator (Ben McCorkle) employ data visualization, distant reading, and multimodal documentary methodologies in order to resee the history of "new media" in the discipline of English studies. 

Palmeri has also been exploring archives of multimodal composition pedagogy beyond English studies, including a work in progress exploring the implications of the feminist art pedagogy of Judy Chicago for multimodal composition practice.
