My work centers on digital rhetoric, or the ways in which the digital endows filmic media with book-like qualities; their past ephemerality having been arrested, they can be subject to sustained analysis even as they can function as units for producing texts. This fuller palate of semiotic resources has implications for scholarship, research and pedagogy.

I’m Eric Detweiler, Assistant Professor of Rhetoric & Composition in Middle Tennessee State University’s Department of English. I recently earned a PhD in English with a specialization in rhetoric and writing from The University of Texas at Austin. My primary research project focuses on the intersections of rhetoric and writing pedagogy, classical and contemporary rhetorical theory, and rhetorical ethics. In addition, I teach and study digital rhetoric and multimodal composition, especially as they relate to sound studies and sonic rhetorics.
