Diversification of Apparatus as Reorientation

PhD Student updates Blog with intriguing inclusion of Kenneth Burke

On February 1st, a personal blog entitled, "Projects+Research" was updated with a new post, referencing heavy Burkean thought. The video referenced is composed by Matthew J Osborn, a PhD student in Rhetoric at Clemson University, which was also shown at the Conference of the Kenneth Burke Society in St. Louis, 2014. Posting on his blog, he explains his thesis as attempting to "stretch Burke himself into endorsing 'electracy.'" His short concluding argument is that Burke's writing is an "inherent feature of electracy."
