About this Book
This book was written as a class project in IP&T 510: Introduction to Academic Writing at Brigham Young University. The course was taught by Dr. Royce Kimmons in Spring 2021. Dr. Kimmons provided trends data to students who then self-organized into teams and wrote synthetic histories for each subdiscipline. Submissions were then reviewed by external reviewers and thoroughly edited by Julie Irvine and Dr. Kimmons. The resulting book was then published in Fall 2021 under an open license.
