For over two decades, scholars in rhetoric and composition studies have been invested in helping to shape and adapt writing studies as institutions of higher learning negotiate conceptualizations of subjects and knowledge production in digital culture. The canon of invention, in particular, has propelled forth theories and practices that resist hermeneutic modes of knowledge production and instead advocate invention as performance. Inspired by the aforementioned scholarship, Victor Vitanza's call for knowledge production that relies on the language games of paralogy, Gregory Ulmer's heuretics, and Sarah Arroyo and Geoffrey Carter's participatory pedagogy, this thesis puts forth a method of invention entitled "producing as a listener." This methodology harnesses the potential of video editing software and video sharing ecologies as choric sites of invention, relies on the reconceptualization of subjects as whatever singularities, and invites electrate and proairetic lines of reasoning wherein video composers invent and write as listeners.
