My name is Kiedra Taylor, and I’m a San Diego State University student majoring in Comparative Literature and minoring in Rhetoric and Writing Studies. I began participating in social media because it was required for a part-time job many years ago. I decided it can be an effective way for me to communicate with family and friends, so I continued to be active in the social media world. People all over the world have been using social media to quickly share propaganda. Therefore, it is a form of literature worth examining.

I believe that by integrating rhetoric and literature scholars can firmly connect the act of writing and the resulting art to actual social, political, and economical issues. Since literature exists beyond the pages of books and because I spend a great deal of time analyzing arguments, I hope to learn how to write rhetorically so that I may share my criticisms in conversation with others.
