2/2: Digital Rhetorical Spaces
All writing exists within a rhetorical space; however, the attributes of digital rhetorical spaces can be much harder to define than those within the material world. For this class, we will be thinking about how the digital spaces in which we write influence the purpose, process, and product of writing.
To prepare for class, please read the following, which can be found in the Files section of ELMS:
- Understanding Rhetoric Introduction, “Spaces for Writing” (pg. 1-22)
- Understanding Rhetoric Issue 7, “Navigating Among Media” (pg. 253-257)
Then, gather samples of your writing across a range of 4 different rhetorical spaces, including both digital and print spaces. Bring those writing samples to class so we can explore how the rhetorical situation influences our work!
