Description

Scholar Adam J. Banks offers a mixture of African American digital rhetoric in this innovative study. Presenting the DJ as a quintessential example of the digital griot—a high-tech storyteller—this book shows how African American storytelling traditions and their digital manifestations can help scholars and teachers shape composition studies, thoroughly linking oral, print, and digital production in ways that centralize African American discursive practices as part of a multicultural set of ideas and pedagogical commitments.

A remarkable addition to the study of African American rhetorical theory and composition studies, Digital Griots: African American Rhetoric in a Multimedia Age will compel scholars and students alike to think about what they know of African American rhetoric in fresh and useful ways.

Studies in Writing & Rhetoric (SWR) series. 208 pp. 2011. College. NCTE/CCCC and Southern Illinois University Press. ISBN 978-0-8093-3020-1.
