In this interview, Eric Detweiler talks with Brooke about the possibilities for digital rhetoric scholarship, his role as Director of Electronic Services for the Rhetoric Society of America, and the ways in which he's putting Bruno Latour's work in conversation with rhetoric.

If you missed this series' first installment--an interview with the University of Kentucky's Roxanne Mountford featuring a cameo appearance by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Bill Keith--it's accessible here. If you're interested in more on intersections between Latour and rhetoric, you can take Brooke's recommendation and check out this book by Clay Spinuzzi.
