New Media Technologies in Rhetorical Communication: Podcast #1

In this podcast, I discuss the role of new media technologies in rhetorical communication in the context of the Slack et. al. article. I examine each of the three theories of rhetorical communication: the transmission view, the translation view and the articulation view. In each of these theories, the role of the channel of communication changes. I discuss the roles of the technological channels of communication in each view and how they contribute to the greater rhetorical act. By analyzing this article, I believe one comes to have a greater understanding of the role new media technologies play in co-creating rhetoric. The music at the beginning of this podcast is “Goodbye War, Hello Peace” by Teru.

    Katie, great job with your podcast! I loved the way you started it off with a little music and faded it out at the end. Your voice was very steady and calm. I think it was helpful that you wrote it out prior to recording yourself. There were no obvious background noises or interruptions.
    I found your podcast to be very helpful in explaining some of the concepts that we have just begun to talk about in class. The way that you included all the examples of messages and modes was particularly helpful to me. The example you gave of a newspaper article not being a good medium for an 8-year-old makes perfect sense and really speaks to the many different directions that we can go in with new media technologies. We have the power, through technology, to create different ways for people to learn. Writing and reading through newspapers, books, encyclopedias, and textbooks can be much more powerful now due to the Internet. From the article that you used, it is clear that the channel of communication really does affect the way that the message is received, and it will be interesting to see where this goes as new message channels are being developed every day.
