What the heck is…?
Curious about the topic of this blog? The short answer is that it focuses on a topic for a college course I teach at CU Boulder, which you can learn more about under the WRTG 3020 Info tab.
To jump right to an explanation of the topic, see: What is the “rhetoric of gender and sexuality through new media”?
Or for a shorter but somewhat more cryptic version: we investigate everything you need to know to make sense of this image and where it came from (click on the image to view the source).
New Blog Address
Much of the material you’ll find here was previously available on gendersex.net, a network of blogs I used for my courses between 2009 and 2014. What’s missing from the new site are the class blogs and student projects.
Thanks to the persistent efforts of hackers, I had to disband the class blogs and am now using a private Google Site for my current classes. But you can still find the student projects here: DigitalWriting101.net/
Most of what you’ll find here are my brief sample rhetorical analyses of messages about gender and sexuality I found through social media. Starting with Spring 2014, students and I share these observations via a closed Google+ community, so I don’t know how often I’ll add new content.
But given that my internet nickname is “perpetual revision,” you can be sure I’ll periodically return to the site to make improvements as needed!
