Ball, Cheryl E. (2005, June 17). Hackers, schmoozers, & wonder: Rhetoric, technology, & aesthetics in new media spaces. Computers & Writing, Palo Alto, CA.
In this session, I presented on a “rhetoric of wow,” drawing on Geoffrey Sirc’s (2001) notion of a Happenings pedagogy and Philip Fisher’s (2003) poetics of wonder and thought. I apply that rhetoric to a student-produced video poem, to offer the audience a method of analysis/assessment of digital media texts.
