Forum Theme 1
I’ve spent the past two decades of my professional life immersed in technology, not because I first chose to do so, but rather because doing so was my responsibility. No good scholar and teacher in professional communication—and indeed, no good scholar in rhetoric who also lives in the 21st century—should participate in the luxury of dismissing technology as a central aspect of her work.
Over time this tech-centric approach has informed my professional identity and a larger understanding of my discipline’s mission; meanwhile, as a member of a discipline that (at UNI) is classified as one of the English field’s subdisciplines, I find myself implicated in the current anxiety over the state of the humanities.
