DH Methods Presentation

I made a handout for my presentation in RMH’s methods course. I tried to structure the presentation as a conversation in which I (attempted) to answer questions and show examples. I created text files from our exam reading list to mine/visualize, but we ran out of time. We were going to explore/compare Bitzer’s “The Rhetorical Situation” with Vatz’s “Myth of the Rhetorical Situation” in voyant tools. I also had an idea to look at “rhetoric” in each book of Aristotle’s “On Rhetoric” in voyant tools to look for how the term was situated. I could still pursue these projects myself, but what arose was an interest in comparing rhet/comp exam reading lists from as many institutions I can find. I don’t know what I’ll do with the data yet, but I am curious to look at the lists across institutions.
