DISSERTATION: Developing a Digital Paideia: Composing Identities and Engaging Rhetorically
in the Digital Age
COMMITTEE: Cynthia L. Selfe (Chair), Scott Lloyd DeWitt, Brooke Rollins, and H. Lewis
This project examines performative identity rhetorics and composing practices within online spaces,
exploring the multidimensional rhetorics that digital citizens engage everyday. Analyzing online
compositions and rhetorical behaviors across social media spaces, this project develops a digital paideia
to demonstrate how such sites could be engaged in composition classrooms. I situate the rhetorical
behaviors and compositions common to online spaces as forms of digital civic engagement, tying
contemporary rhetorical activities to the western rhetorical tradition’s civic-minded, classical roots.
