Patricia SullivanPurdue Universityupdated 7.24.12This page bookmarks sites used in "History of Rhetoric: Modern Period" (English624). We are fortunate that historians have worked to use the Internet to addresslate 20th century problems of access to historical materials needed to do historyof rhetoric. This page aims to circulate their work more widely. After providingconnections to the live work of the course (collaborative bibs in Zotero, mydevelopmental links in delicious, and databases available to Purdue studentsthrough the University Libraries), the page focuses on bookmarking open accessaids to scholarship that can be found online. It lists: sites that aid history of rhetoric in the UK; sites focusing on history in the US; sites that distributedigitized public domain books; sites that have particular works by named authors;pointers to articles helpful in building a bibliography.This resourse list started as a conventional course bibliography, alert to themultidisciplinary dimensions of Modern Rhetoric. You can see at the end of thisfile that we first gathered secondary materials and placed them in the Rhet/CompResource Room. Then, as the web took hold, we added reference websites andthen digitized full texts. Each year the study of modern rhetoricexpands/extends its digital reach via digital archives, online exhibits, repositoriesof open access texts, online journals, collaborative research software, and so on.Thus, these resources are only part of the digital resources for the course. Theyfocus on pointing to digital assets that are being freely shared. Below. . .
