Students in the MA in Professional Communication program at Clemson have created a video that is a must see:
In the video, you'll see a number of familiar faces talk about public perceptions of rhetoric, as well as offer their take on what it means to those of us in R/C. The interviews were conducted at the Burke conference here at Clemson in May.
Dr. Charles Lowe's new book, Kairotica: A Dating Book for Rhetoricians has finally hit the shelves. While the idea of using rhetoric to score is nothing new, Dr. Lowe's patented approach, which combines the teachings of rhetoricians such as "Gorgeous" Gorgias with new breakthroughs in pheromones and reflexology, is guaranteed to work or your money back.
In a purely self-indulgent move I have started a podcast and blog called Not Your Mama's Gamer which focuses on video games from a feminist perspective. I co-host the podcast with two smart and funny women (Alex Layne and Sarah White) and we've been having a ball. We have done 3 episodes and quite a few blog posts already and our fourth podcast is coming up this week. Feel free to check us out and let us know what you think.
At long last, here is the third episode of Digital Rhetoricians. This time we're focused on Johndan Johnson-Eilola's "The Database and the Essay," a great essay in the Writing New Media edited collection. We also offer a news segment at the beginning. You can download the podcast here or on iTunes.
I thought you might get a kick out of a podcasting project I'm doing with my English 652 (digital rhetoric & pedagogy class). It was their first time doing something like this, but I think it turned out pretty good. I've submitted it to iTunes, but who knows how long their review process will take. In the meantime, you can enjoy it here or at iTunes.
