Seventh Edition of ‘City Tech Writer’ Now Online
The 7th edition of City Tech Writer, featuring outstanding student writing from across the disciplines,is now online at http://www.citytech.cuny.edu/files/academics/ctw7.pdf.
Under the direction of Department of English Professor Jane Mushabac, who serves as editor-in-chief, City Tech Writer was first published in 2006. Development of the journal’s latest edition is the work of English Professor and Guest Editor George Guida. Art direction was under the supervision of Professor Lloyd Carr of the College’s Graphic Arts Program, and Department of Advertising Design & Graphic Arts student Jonathan Myvett’s design was chosen for the cover.
At a well-attended reception on May 3, Professors Mushabac and Guida commended more than two dozen student authors whose works appear in the 2012 edition. A diversity of topics range from those dealing with “What Else Is Evolving from Evolution?” and “Morality Today in America: Problems and Solutions” to “The Impact of Online Restaurant Review Sites” and “How Live Sound Systems Work.” Other topics “deal with ideas and issues of great moment, including religion, neo-liberal politics, the legacy of slavery, hydraulic fracturing, cultural hybridity, marriage equality, higher education, genetic engineering, youth violence and the psychological effects of economic hardship,” writes Professor Guida in the Preface to this year’s publication.
Professor Guida acknowledged many members of faculty and staff whose efforts contributed to the production of the publication. “Of course,” he concluded, “it is Professor Jane Mushabac who deserves the lion's share of praise among those non-students responsible for this journal. City Tech Writer is her vision and her gift to us. I thank her for allowing me and everyone else involved to play our parts.”
