UNDERSTANDING RHETORIC LOSH PDF

Get This Book A landmark volume that explores the interconnected nature of technologies and rhetorical practice Rhetorical Machines addresses new approaches to studying computational processes within the growing field of digital rhetoric. While computational code is often seen as value-neutral and mechanical, this volume explores the underlying, and often unexamined, modes of persuasion this code engages. In so doing, it argues that computation is in fact rife with the values of those who create it and thus has powerful ethical and moral implications. This multidisciplinary volume features contributions from scholar-practitioners across the fields of rhetoric, computer science, and writing studies. Three of the sections are prefaced by brief conversations with chatbots autonomous computational agents addressing some of the primary questions raised in each section. At the heart of these essays is a call for emerging and established scholars in a vast array of fields to reach interdisciplinary understandings of human-machine interactions.

Shelves: composition-theory , possible-teaching-texts Excited to try teaching this book. Sometimes a little silly, but based in rigorous scholarship.

Will update the review if I end up teaching from the book! Feb 09, Melissa rated it really liked it A lot of the information presented in this book is engaging, thus hopefully helpful for students, especially since the multimodality nature of having a textbook in a comic form could reach different learners and learning styles.

Some of the smartest panels use the images to break down ideas shown in text or, even better, present useful metaphors to further clarify points. In particular, I loved the chapter on Strategic A lot of the information presented in this book is engaging, thus hopefully helpful for students, especially since the multimodality nature of having a textbook in a comic form could reach different learners and learning styles.

For these reasons, I am excited to try the book in a class or at least start with an excerpt and get a feel for its student response. As a writing instructor and comp nerd, I enjoyed a lot of the humor in the book.

And like in a lot of comics, some of the best humor is in the details and the background--e. However, whenever a full panel was used to tell a joke about the authors like Alexander being hungry , it seems to detract from the work itself, and I assume could distract readers or even confuse them if they are new to visual literacy.

These sections often felt uneven. Their issues on "Strategic Reading," arguments, and portions of the research and revision are fantastic. However, at times, the book feels a bit too wrapped up in its own novelty of being a graphic guide rather than a traditional textbook. Some of this is very There is a lot to like here, as Losh and Alexander have done a great job condensing many facets of rhetoric into digestible issues.

Some of this is very tongue in cheek and rather amusing, but other portions feel a bit off--if not outright patronizing to students. Also, while the art is solid and does make for an interesting setup for such a thing, it would require a bit of unpacking in the classroom.

Not that this is terrible, but I wonder how accessible some of the material is for those not already "in the know. GREAT for my AP Language teaching pals - so worth reading just for the single-page treasures that reframe how to think about many of the concepts you may have struggled with explaining to your students.
