How do we define literacy–our own and others’–in a world that is infused with multimodal (defined as multiple modalities including the visual, aural, and interactive) rhetoric? This is a survey course and a workshop; we will explore a very broad range of issues related to the rhetoric of productions in all kinds of media, blog about these, hold weekly discussions in which students will take turns leading on various assigned texts, and then draw from readings and discussion to produce a final project.. We will explore online networked reading and writing practices, and examine the social, cultural, educational, and ethical dimensions of digital and hybrid texts. We will also examine identity and representation, including class, race, and gender, in media spaces.
