Three Questions with Fred Johnson


Submitted by John W. Pell on April 3, 2015 - 4:58pm


Fred Johnson's essay "Perspicuous Objects" appeared in the Fall issue of Kairos (http://kairos.technorhetoric.net/19.1/topoi/johnson/index.html). The essay, or rather, the "piece" was an engaging argument about the use of comics in the instruction of both writing and critical theory. Beyond being an engaging argument, "Perspicuous Objects" also seamlessly melds new media with academic argumentation, providing readers with a glimpse of what is possible when scholarship is composed and crafted with digital mediums for consumption in digital environments.
