Prof. Saper at Martha B. Reynolds Speakers Series, Univ. of Kentucky

Prof. Saper presented his research on the future of reading and literacy in the Martha B. Reynolds Speakers Series at the University of Kentucky. He presented "WRD UP 2.0: Teaching \R\E\A\D/I/N/G/" on November 11th as part of the series sponsored by the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & Digital Media. His presentation proposes a type of course sequence which addresses the poetics of reading as a practice. We will need to learn different types of reading practices the way we have learned types of rhetorical appeals in writing, genres in poetics, or medium-specific practices in the arts.
