Intro to Writing Arts: Technologies & the Future of Writing (module)
Produced by Devon James
The official Rowan catalog entry for this course can be found here.
In this module, we'll investigate technologies and the future of writing by critically engaging in contemporary writing practices in digital environments (e.g. blogging, microblogging, creating a digital writing portfolio, and conducting online research) while grappling with relevant research in the field of rhetoric and writing studies. Specifically, we'll ask: How do contemporary writing technologies and practices cause us to reconsider our definition of writing as well as constructs like audience, identity, originality, authority, ownership, materiality, and collaboration?
