We’re using this space as the platform for our collective web writing topographies. The class as a whole is developing a collective map of web writing—its styles, argumentative and communicative patterns, and concrete practices across different platforms, areas of interests, and types of  communities and subject matter. We’re calling this “map” a collective topography after the notion of topoi or “topics” in classical rhetorical theory. The goal here is to identify topoi in practice such that they can function as generative means for rhetorical invention.
