for #BUDSC17, Bucknell University's fourth annual Digital Scholarship
Conference  http://budsc17.scholar.bucknell.edu/ , October 6-8. This year's
conference, "Looking Forward, Looking Back: The Evolution of Digital

rhetorical performance. “Owning My Masters: The Rhetorics Of Rhymes &
Revolutions” is a 34-song rap album that also served as his doctoral
dissertation.

Stephen Cartwright is an associate professor in the School of Art and
Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 1999 he has
been tracking his personal geographic location every hour and using the
data in physical and digital artworks. His work

and art.

Kalev Leetaru is a Senior Fellow at the George Washington University Center
for Cyber & Homeland Security. He has extensive experience in the area of
big data, social analytics, and culturomics. He leads the GDelt
<https://www.gdeltproject.org/> project, one of the largest databases of
