Digital Remakes: Lauren Redniss' Radioactive

As part of the course "Digital Rhetorics," students read Lauren Redniss' Radioactive: a Tale of Love and Fallout. Radioactive----a multimodal account of the life and work of the Curies--pushes the boundaries of the printed page, forcing readers to consider different ways of presenting stories, arguments, and information. Redniss has shown us how to combine word, image, and primary documents and to reimagine what a book can be, and the remakes take that lesson into digital rhetoric and writing. For this project, students used the affordances of digital technology to remake portions of Redniss' narrative. Below you will find links to several of the projects, posted with student permission.
