UM Press/Sweetland Publication Prize


Daniel Anderson is the inaugural winner of the UM Press/Sweetland Publication Prize in Digital Rhetoric for his long-form webtext Screen Rhetoric and the Material World. The press release for the project notes how Anderson "reconfigures the print-centric theories we use for composing—as well as reading, analyzing, and making sense of—screen-based media. . . . Anderson’s digitally born project is centered on screencasts and video clips. Highly complex in delivery, these video layers perform as well as comment upon the theories with which the project engages." Screen Rhetoric and the Material world not only explores but enacts emerging possibilities for scholarship.
