Now Available: Digital Rhetoric

by Kelly Witchen on June 8, 2015

We are happy to announce a new title from digitalculturebooks, Digital Rhetoric: Theory, Method, Practice by Douglas Eyman. This is the seventh book in our Digital Humanities Series.

The goal of Digital Rhetoric is to gather, synthesize, and critique current work that stakes a claim to “digital rhetoric” as field or methodological approach. Digital Rhetoric argues for a view of digital rhetoric as an emergent, interdisciplinary field of practice that has developed in parallel forms in a wide range of disciplines, including rhetoric and writing, composition, technical communication, digital game studies, literacy studies, media (and new media) studies, and human-computer interaction, among others. After tracing developments in these fields and providing a working definition of “digital rhetoric” and its relationship to digital literacy, new media, and digital humanities approaches, Digital Rhetoric examines theories of digital rhetoric, research methods for digital rhetoric scholarship, and a series of case studies of digital rhetoric practice.

Digital Rhetoric is freely available to read online. Print copies of the book may be purchased from the University of Michigan Press.

Douglas Eyman is Assistant Professor of English at George Mason University and Senior Editor of the open access scholarly journal Kairos: Rhetoric, Technology, Pedagogy.
