Ametros: A Technogenetic Simulation Game for Professional Communication Coursework

Robert Clapperton

August 15, 2014 - 1:30 pm in HH 334

Thursday, July 31, 2014 — 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM EDT

Sophisticated, complex, and numerous, rhetorical figures from antimetabole to zeugma have been rich resources for communication, literature and argumentation for over two millennia. The Department of English Language and Literature presents a workshop on the intersection of computers and rhetorical figures. Digital technologies can both chart the subtleties of rhetorical figures and, in turn, deploy them to chart out  the textual universe. Genre detection, sentiment detection, authorship attribution, argument analysis—wherever there are words, there are figures. Wherever there are figures, there are patterns. Wherever there are patterns, there are purposes to detect, diagnose, and critique.

You can also catch the event via webcast.

For more information, contact Randy Harris or Marie-Agnes Pilon.

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 (all day) to Thursday, July 31, 2014 (all day)
