How the Internet Saved My Daughter and How Social Media Saved My Family
Santos, Marc C.
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, v15 n2 Spr 2011
This installation is a personal and cathartic engagement with my initial inability to cope with my daughter's cancer. It details events that began in August of 2008 and concluded, in a sense, in February of 2009. I offer it with hopes of helping digitally-oriented rhetoric and composition scholars "determin[e] a should for a we" (Patricia Sullivan & James E. Porter, 1997, p.103). How should we approach pedagogy in the early 21st century? My tentative answer is to approach it less with aims of "constructing knowledge" and more with hopes of "negotiating encounters." (Contains 6 notes.)
