Ball, Cheryl E. (2009, October 13). The aesthetics of editing digital media scholarship: A look at Kairos. Online Research Mediation & the Arts Seminar. Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Oslo, Norway.
I will present a short history and overview of Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, which has been publishing digital media texts since 1996. I will discuss how Kairos editors, board members, and authors negotiate the journal’s ever-changing boundaries between ‘typical’ print and ‘typical’ digital scholarship (in digital writing studies) as exemplified in the complicated relationship between aesthetics and rhetorics in a recent set of creative submissions, with an in-depth look at one submission in particular.
