Abstract

The goal of Digital Rhetoric: Theory, Method, Practice is to gather, synthesize, and critique current work that stakes a claim to “digital rhetoric” as field or methodological approach. Digital Rhetoric: Theory, Method, Practice 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. In addition to a synthesis and critique of current work on “digital rhetoric,” this project calls for the development of new theoretical frameworks and new “born-digital” research methods.

Abstract

Roberto Pettorino was born in Naples on April 24, 1946. After graduating in Physics at the University of Naples Federico II in 1970, he later pursued research at Stanford's SLAC and Geneva's CERN. He was Full Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Faculty of Physical, Mathematical and Natural Sciences at Federico II University, Dean of the Faculty from 2007 to 2012, President of the University Assessment Team since October 2012. Since the first Open Archive was created by Paul Ginsparg in 1991 at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL preprint archive, USA) for the elementary particle physics community, Roberto Pettorino was engaged in promoting Open Access. Since 2002, he had been delegated by the Rector of Naples Federico II for the libraries information services and member of the Scientific Technical Council of the Information Services Center; then he chaired the Permanent Commission for Libraries and Digital Resources. In 2002-2003 he promoted the development of the Digital Library of the University of Naples Federico II.Here are some contributions, collected to celebrate Roberto Pettorino's memory on April 8, 2013 when the Library Center was officially named after him.

Abstract

Libraries are not passive to the rapid and profound digital change. They have recognized and accepted the task and opportunity to actively participate in shaping a sustainable information infrastructure for a modern knowledge society. They use the opportunities of new information technologies to build digital libraries and to expand its service range by offering innovative services. Acknowledged experts from libraries and science in this book give an in-depth insight into current developments in this very important sector for libraries. The topics of the contributions in this volume range of approaches and strategies to improve the information structure of academic libraries on concrete examples of the establishment and development of digital libraries in practice to prospects for future development opportunities and areas of action.

Abstract

The New Work of Composing is a book-length collection whose purpose is to examine the complex and semiotically rich challenges and opportunities posed by new modes of composing, new forms of rhetoric, new concepts of texts and textuality, and new ways of making meaning. In particular, this book explores how digital media are shaping our understanding of scholarly projects within composition studies, including the need toreconsider print-centric conceptions of composing;theorize and illustrate new digital genres and interrogate definitions of authorial identity;consider how digital media change our understanding of (virtual and scholarly) space and place and allow new possibilities for embodiment;explore political implications of using new media in scholarship.Twelve chapters that respond to these objectives were solicited from participants of the 2008 Thomas R. Watson Conference on Rhetoric and Composition and were reviewed by the book’s editors. The book includes a foreword by N. Katherine Hayles and responses to the themes above written by Marilyn Cooper, Paul Prior, Diana George, and Andrea Lunsford. Authors include established scholars in digital writing studies and digital humanities, as well as new voices.

Abstract

Digital communications technology has immeasurably enhanced our capacity to store, retrieve, and exchange information. But who controls our access to information, and who decides what others have a right to know about us? In Controlling Knowledge, author Lorna Stefanick offers a thought-provoking and user-friendly overview of the regulatory regime that currently governs freedom of information and the protection of privacy. Aiming to clarify rather than mystify, Stefanick outlines the history and application of FOIP legislation, with special focus on how these laws affect the individual. To illustrate the impact of FOIP, she examines the notion of informed consent, looks at concerns about surveillance in the digital age, and explores the sometimes insidious influence of Facebook. Specialists in public policy and public administration, information technology, communications, law, criminal justice, sociology, and health care will find much here that bears directly on their work, while students and general readers will welcome the book's down-to-earth language and accessible style. Intended to serve as a "citizen's guide," Controlling Knowledge is a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand how freedom of information and privacy protection are legally defined and how this legislation is shaping our individual rights as citizens of the information age.

Abstract

The world of communication media has undergone massive changes since the mid-1980s. Along with the extraordinary progress in technological capability, it has experienced stunning decreases in costs; a revolutionary opening up of markets (a phenomenon exemplified by but not limited to the rise of the Internet); the advent of new business models; and a striking acceleration in the rate of change. These technological, regulatory, and economic changes have attracted the attention of a large number of researchers, from industry and academe, and given rise to a substantial body of research and data. Significantly less attention has been paid to the people who use new media—whose own rate of adoption and assimilation often lags notably behind the technologies themselves. When Media Are New addresses this research and publishing gap by investigating the human factors involved in technological change and their implications for current and future media. It will find a broad audience ranging from media and communication scholars to historians and organizational theorists to industry professionals.

Abstract

Writing has changed due to the affordances of digital technologies, and writing assessment has changed as well. As writing programs integrate more digital writing work, students, teachers, and administrators face the rewards and challenges of assessing and evaluating multimodal and networked writing projects. Whether classroom-based or program-level; whether in first-year writing, technical communication, or writing-across-the-curriculum; whether formative or summative; and whether for purposes of placement, grading, self-study, or external reporting, digital writing complicates the processes and practices of assessment.The chapters in Digital Writing Assessment & Evaluation place emphasis on assessment of digital writing—the methodological, technological, and ethical approaches for and issues involved with assessing multimodal, networked texts (and the student learning they represent). Authors address questions such as:How do different approaches to assessing traditional writing (8 1/2 x 11 word-centric texts) port—or not—to the assessment of digital writing? What challenges and opportunities for assessment do multimodal, networked texts present to teachers, program administrators, state-wide organizations, etc.?What material and technological resources are needed when assessing digital writing and/or how might existing resources need to be modified?How are processes and products of selection, collection, and reflection different (or not) with the multimodal affordances of digital technologies?How do guidelines and outcomes of groups such as CCCC, NCTE, WPA, AAC&U, impact approaches to assessment? How might these guidelines and outcomes need to be revised to better address digital writing assessment?How might the multimodal, networked affordances of digital writing affect issues of equity and access? How might groups often disenfranchised by more traditional assessment be impacted by digital writing assessment?How might eportfolios be designed for showcasing the collaborative composing processes of multimodal and/or networked writing?By what criteria should program administrators and instructors assess and select course-management and/or eportfolio systems?The fourteen chapters are organized into four sections, addressing equity and assessment, classroom evaluation and assessment, multimodal evaluation and assessment, and program revisioning and program assessment. Andrea Lunsford provides the foreword to the book; Edward White is the author of the afterword.

Abstract

With our unique focus on writing, our innovative web-born format and our open review process, we seek to move beyond the traditionalist ways humanities scholars – and historians in particular – have tended to think about and to use digital technologies. In a recent lecture delivered in advance of his forthcoming book, The Ivory Tower and the Open Web, Dan Cohen (2011) observes that most scholars have preferred “to impose traditional ivory tower genres on the web” rather than accept its most successful models, such as blogs and social media. What would happen, Cohen asks, if we reversed this flow and “embraced the genres of the open web?” How might the web challenge prevailing norms of scholarly work, particularly in how we generate and communicate knowledge with one another? This, in short, is what we seek to explore in our Writing History volume.
