Freedom of Speech: Mightier Than the Sword

A provocative, well timed evaluate of the country of unfastened speech in America

With his top vendor The operating bad, Pulitzer Prize winner and previous long island occasions veteran David ok. Shipler cemented his position between our so much trenchant social commentators. Now he turns his incisive reporting to a serious American excellent: freedom of speech. Anchored in own stories—sometimes surprising, occasionally absurd, occasionally dishearteningly familiar—Shipler’s investigations of the cultural limits on either expression and the willingness to hear construct to reveal troubling instabilities within the very foundations of our democracy.

Sample text

Connecting rhetorical theories of hypertext with visual rhetoric, Gary Heba (1997) suggests the development of a multimedia-­based “HyperRhetoric”—­“a form of communication that continually invents and reinvents itself through an ongoing negotiation among users, developers, electronic content, and its presentation in a multimedia environment” (22). Heba notes that “from a semiotic perspective, words, images, sounds, textures, smells, tastes, and data markup Defining and Locating Digital Rhetoric • 27 code in the case of SGML and HTML, are all capable of producing meaningful information.

I find the second critique somewhat more problematic. Losh argues that “despite appeals to those with interdisciplinary credentials, [work in digital rhetoric] often excludes highly relevant literature from technologists who may have a more intimate understanding of the systemic constraints that govern the representation, processing, or retrieval of information that may be central to communicative exchanges effected through digital media,” and she also claims that “a basic understanding of both signal theory and network theory is valuable to any contemporary rhetorician” (89).

98) As the definition of text continues to expand to include digital objects that meet the general criteria and associated properties listed above but that also engage a broader range of media, modes, and applications, the analytic capacity of digital rhetoric becomes more likely to provide methods for studying texts that “are not merely out there, as objects, but also in motion, gathering other texts around them, responding to their environments in ways both simple and complex, making connections that their authors or readers are participants in” (Johnson-­Eilola 2010, 37).
