RHET 334/3250 - Digital Rhetoric (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
RHET 1020  or its equivalent

Description
This is a course in the rhetorical analysis of the increasingly important genres that comprise the practices of E-Writing, including: blogging, wiki-development, networked writing, hypertext, and social networking. The course offers students an opportunity to work within various online contexts, with attention to their evolving conventions, textual features, the relationship between discourse and social practice, and the importance of medium in terms of opportunities and constraints offered. Students analyze and write about the social and cultural implications of developments in electronic literacy. Assignments involve the critique and construction of texts using new media tools and the exploration of how communication practices, notions of audience, elements of argument, narrative and meaning-making are enriched and complicated by the new possibilities of a global, digital environment.
