The second post due on Nov 22 is about postmodernist influences on rhetoric. Review the chapter on Postmodern Approaches to Rhetoric (Ch 11). Then, make a list of all the different identities you take on during the week (i.e. significant other, parent, employee, friend, student, etc). You may brainstorm and keep a journal as you go through the week, taking note of these identities. In your post, consider these questions:
*Is your identity stable or shifting? Why?
*How does technology and your cultural environment influence the identities you assume?
*Does your experience fit with descriptions discussed in this chapter?
