Page history last edited by Alex 13 years, 8 months ago



PWR 209: Writing in the Digital Age is a course offered in the Professional Writing program at SUNY College at Cortland. The course explores developments in networked communication in terms of compositional practices, rhetoric, aesthetics, ethics and politics. Given the quickly changing nature of this field, the course readings, networking applications and assignments change with each semester.
