Edited by Jonathan (University of California Irvine, USA) Alexander, Jacqueline (Michigan State University, USA) Rhodes
Part of the Routledge Handbooks in Communication Studies series
This handbook brings together scholars from around the globe who here contribute to ourunderstanding of how digital rhetoric is changing the landscape of writing.
Increasingly, all of usmust navigate networks of information, compose not just with computers but an array ofmobile devices, increase our technological literacy, and understand the changing dynamics ofauthoring, writing, reading, and publishing in a world of rich and complex texts.
Given suchchanges, and given the diverse ways in which younger generations of college students are writing,communicating, and designing texts in multimediated, electronic environments, we need toconsider how the very act of writing itself is undergoing potentially fundamental changes.
Thesechanges are being addressed increasingly by the emerging field of digital rhetoric, a field thatattempts 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.
