Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

Organizing texts and lecture notes in preparation for twelve weeks of intensives at Berkeley this summer. "What Is Compelling?" (on argument, persuasion, and obligation) and Green Rhetoric (on environmentalist discourses, identity formations, and theories) are both courses I have taught many times before, and yet all teaching feels different to me post health-crisis and post Trump, my confidence is different, my focus is different, my sense of what teaching theory is good for is different. Still feels rather fraught I must say.
