English Professor June Johnson Bube published the third edition of her global studies argument reader, "Global Issues, Local Arguments." This edition, published by Pearson, introduces a new chapter, “Global Netizens: Social Media’s Role in Social and Political Change.” The book explores such controversies as the international graffiti scene, the global response to pandemics and antimicrobial resistance, and the economic and environmental impacts of water shortage and pollution.
“Layered, multifaceted controversial issues bridging local and global communities are ideal for teaching critical thinking and academic/civic writing,” Johnson Bube said.
In addition to the principles of argument, the book emphasizes reflective writing, visual rhetoric, and rhetorical analysis.
Johnson Bube, who writes under the name June Johnson, received her PhD from the University of Washington and joined the English faculty in 1996. Her scholarship focuses on nineteenth-century American literature and rhetoric and composition.
