    2: Digital rhetoric and identity

    Isn’t it weird YouTube shared an ad for body wash with you after you just talked to your friend about it this morning? Why does Facebook know you are out of coffee creamer? Does Google really think you are going to take that trip to Ireland you were researching last week during some down time at work?

    Join Matt Schering and Charles Woods as we discuss the power of algorithms in forming online identity and how we can present these ideas to students focusing on their identity as writers in the world. Featuring discussions of works by Jessica Reyman, Aaron Hess, and Amber Davisson, make sure to follow, share, like, and listen to The Big Rhetorical Podcast.
