DRC Chat: What Should Digital Rhetoric Be Interested In?


#DRCchat returned Tuesday, asking all our #digirhet folks to consider what digital rhetoric as a field should be interested in.

Broadly, we are interested in four main areas: People, Literacy, Tools, and Concepts.

  • People: digital citizenship, community, advocacy, empowerment, inequality, race, class
  • Literacy: collaboration, connection, crowdsourcing, deliberation, history, narrative
  • Tools: digital platforms, technologies, frameworks for meaning-making
  • Concepts: accessibility, surveillance, privacy, ideology, politics

Hopefully these DRC chats will be useful in shaping digital rhetoric as a discipline. Thank you for participating! And also–check Twitter next Tuesday, when we’ll be discussing our current research projects.
