about this item
This handbook brings together scholars from around the globe who here contribute to our
understanding of how digital rhetoric is changing the landscape of writing. Increasingly, all of us
must navigate networks of information, compose not just with computers but an array of
mobile devices, increase our technological literacy, and understand the changing dynamics of
authoring, writing, reading, and publishing in a world of rich and complex texts. Given such
changes, and given the diverse ways in which younger generations of college students are writing,
communicating, and designing texts in multimediated, electronic environments, we need to
consider how the very act of writing itself is undergoing potentially fundamental changes. These
changes are being addressed increasingly by the emerging field of digital rhetoric, a field that
attempts to understand the rhetorical possibilities and affordances of writing, broadly defined,
in a wide array of digital environments.
Of interest to both researchers and students, this volume provides insights about the fields of rhetoric, writing, composition, digital media, literature, and multimodal studies.
