"To balance our accounts of society, we simply have to turn our exclusive attention away from humans and look also at nonhumans."
-Bruno Latour, "Where are the Missing Masses? The Sociology of a Few Mundane Artifacts."
|M.C. Escher. Mosaic II. 1957.|
Following a brief primer in rhetorical theory, we proceed through three phases that articulate related objects and direct our attention to specific problems in rhetoric. These phases are not mutually exclusive; like Escher’s “Mosiac II,” which this course takes as its logo, the objects and processes the phases address necessarily bleed into one another.
