What We Do

Sweetland’s Digital Rhetoric Collaborative (DRC)  aims to serve the digital rhetoric/computers and writing community by

  1. publishing a book series with the University of Michigan Press;
  2. hosting a curated blog where participants can discuss issues and innovations and participate in blog carnivals;
  3. sharing resources for instructors interested in teaching digital media and rhetoric;
  4. sharing ideas, events, and information on its Collaborative page;
  5. providing reviews of the annual meetings of Computers and Writing (and other related events) in order to make proceedings accessible to a wider audience;
  6. hosting a wiki where the histories and futures of digital rhetoric can be discovered and discussed.

Who Does It
Supported by the Gayle Morris Sweetland Center for Writing, the University of Michigan Press, and Michigan Publishing of the University of Michigan Library, the DRC is guided by the members of its Board, by its directors Naomi Silver, Anne Ruggles Gere, and Simone Sessolo (University of Michigan), by its yearly cohort of DRC Graduate Fellows, and most importantly, by members of the DRC community who wish to contribute, publish, and participate.
