Welcome to Critical Communication Re-Imagined
We believe that the past can help us to understand and even to civilize the digital wilderness of the present. Each contributor to this project will pursue his/her personal project, and each will tie that presentation to a larger argument that I, as the instructor and project producer, will lay out.
In effect, we are blending both old and new sorts of communication: the individually authored idea; and the collaboratively organized concept. Our format may or may not be successful, but we are confident that we will set forth -- individually and collectively -- arguments and issues that matter to us personally and as a society.
In the end, we will tidy up our sandbox and put things into a finished form for more formal sharing. But we are also demonstrating a new value for communication that is relevant today: interim knowledge. We are okay with publishing our process, thinking aloud, as it were, on the way to pinning down a more clearly organized final project.
Thanks for joining us. We welcome your input and responses!
