Kevin's Assignment #2

Hi Everyone,

You will find my submission for Assignment #2 here. I have titled it "The Evolution of Rhetorical Persuasion: A Text & Technology Design History."

In this project, I have incorporated Drucker & McVarish and Ong's historical perspectives to trace the modes and influence of both visual and textual rhetorical devices (and combinations thereof) on the world stage. This serves as the foundation for a lit review and preliminary discussion of how digital technology offers new potential for the study of rhetorical persuasion as it relates to a digitally literate world. Recent events in the Middle East demonstrate the incredible potential inherent in digital technology and digital rhetoric to facilitate social change and shape the course world events. This will provide fertile ground for further research and analysis.
