Thesis Materials Michael Wojcik
These are materials for my MA thesis, “Inventing Computational Rhetoric”, which was completed in July 2013 and defended at the beginning of August. The materials here don't include the thesis in its final, depositable form; that's available through ProQuest.
Please note that the thesis does not fall under my regular license. It is copyright © 2013 Michael Wojcik, and all rights are reserved, except that copies may be made for personal and educational use.
It currently includes:
- The prospectus.
- An outline, which is generated from a Freemind mind map.
- A final draft (PDF). This is not in standard thesis format (it's in a format I prefer) and does not have all the thesis front- and backmatter. The main content is essentially identical to what's in the deposited thesis.
- A bibliography in the form of a set of Zotero reports. Many of these sources are non-academic, taken from trade press and similar sources; they're useful in part to gauge how some of these ideas have become mainstream, but mainly as pointers to primary sources I'll be tracking down when they prove relevant. Note: The bibliography documents here are out of date. I'll look into updating them one of these days. My sources are mostly synchronized with the Computational Rhetoric group on Mendeley.
