    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Casey Boyle’s undergraduate rhetoric course explores the rhetorical affordances of sound as a form of writing, focusing specifically on sound in digital environments. Boyle takes a multidisciplinary approach by drawing on readings and audio texts from sound studies, critical theory, rhetoric and composition, journalism, and pop culture. Each week, the assigned readings and listenings are layered with and informed by new technical practices for students to learn. As the semester progresses, the students cultivate a deeper understanding of sonic theories and practices and are able to apply that knowledge in the production of their own sonic projects. This balance of analysis and production allows students to develop technical skills with digital audio tools over an extended period of time, thus making a potentially unfamiliar mode of composing less overwhelming. Boyle provides an excellent road map for teachers interested in developing semester-long courses on sound as a communicative medium.
