Deconstructing (?) Felicia Day’s Multimodal Rhetorics: Composition as an Expansive Act
This course will use three foundations. Using Felicia Day’s quirky, multimodal memoir entitled You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), commentaries on deconstruction (a subversive approach to reexamining texts), and Jenny Edbauer’s academic article which introduces the concept of “rhetorical ecology” (which asks us to examine the full “scope” of rhetoric’s impacts), we will take a novel approach to producing new forms of composition. The end result will be both a reconsideration of what composition and writing is and what it can be.
Required Text for course: You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day.
