Reading List

By js, 21 January, 2009, No Comment

Research Questions:

  • Do blogs written by women who self-identify as Chicana reveal about their identity construction?
  • How have digital literacy skills affected their blogging experience?
  • If so, what rhetorical strategies do these bloggers use to construct their identity?
  • What implications does this knowledge have in the writing classroom?

Reading List:
The reading list is divided into the following sections:
