    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment asks students to produce three iterations of a public biography, combine them, and respond to one another’s work as “creative consultants.” It is part of Alexandria Lockett’s Rhetoric of Advertising course, which moves beyond a traditional, analytical frame and asks students to think about “strategic communication” and how they “brand” and present themselves online. Lockett aims to help students with strategic and proactive self-presentation in “a space where race, gender, and geography mediate students’ relationship to privacy and their perception of legitimate public displays of ‘professional identity’” (Lockett, “Pedagogical”). Working toward that goal, these versioned biographies help students to recognize and shape the impact of different iterations of themselves online—an important objective in social media courses. ePortfolio social media profile assignment that builds on this assignment Course syllabus Student example: Alexandra Calloway’s about.me page
