DIGITAL INTERVIEWS WITH LEADING SCHOLARS IN THE RHETORIC OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND MEDICINE

The Association for the Rhetoric of Science and Technology (ARST) celebrated 20 years in 2012.

The ARST Oral History Project was conceived to document the institutional history of the organization and to begin to trace the larger intellectual history of the rhetoric of science, technology, and medicine. Thus far, seven interviews with leading North American scholars of the rhetoric of science, technology, and medicine have been posted to the ARST Youtube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/user/ARSTonline?feature=watch. The interviews were conducted in conjunction with the ARST Twentieth Anniversary Celebration held in November, 2012, in Orlando, Florida.

The ARST Oral History Project interviews are now available as a podcast at http://arstonline.podomatic.com/. Consider using these in your rhetoric of science, technology, and medicine classes, especially when paired with the ARST twentieth anniversary POROI special issue: http://ir.uiowa.edu/poroi/. More interviews will be posted in the coming weeks. Links to the already posted videos appear below.
