    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    We invite you all to attend the next meeting of the Graduate Center Composition and Rhetoric Community, this Monday (Nov 26th) in room 5409 from 6:30 – 8:30pm.

    English PhD student Dominique Zino, will lead us in a discussion of visual rhetoric in classroom teaching (description and suggested readings below).

    If you would like to attend the meeting, we ask that you drop us a quick message so we know how much food to provide. We look forward to seeing you here!

    Session Description:
    Monday’s session on visual rhetorics will aim to do three things: to model how to help students to formulate theoretical questions about visual culture and visual media using two course readings (Malcolm and Gladwell); to present an easily adaptable activity, the “gallery walk,” that presents images as primary texts; and, finally, to consider the ways “critiquing and producing writing in digital environments offers a return to rhetorical principles” and an approach to writing “as design” (Hocks 632). All session participants will also be invited to a Google doc that includes links and references relevant to teaching aspects of visual rhetoric; this will be a collaborative resource to which everyone should feel free to add!

    Suggested readings:
    “Depth of Field: Thomas Struth’s Ways of Seeing”
    “The Picture Problem: Mammography, Air Power, and the Limits of Looking
    “Understanding Visual Rhetoric in Digital Writing Environments” (CCC 54, No. 4, June 2003)) (attached)
