COMM 6336 - Seminar in Rhetorical Theory

Description
This seminar seeks to discuss how the digital media environment might reshape fundamental humanistic concerns, such as questions about agency, ethics, civil society, and publics. We will read scholarships that debate the cultural politics of digital media, including how the digital environment operates in exerting power, establishing identities, forming alliances, and demanding labor. We will also consider methodological questions and discuss what exactly we study when we study digital culture—ranging from human users, platforms, and architecture to texts and context. Students will be asked to produce short responses and a research paper at the end of the semester.
