  • "The Magic of Philanthropy": The Gates foundation's Reframing of Education
           Reform debate
    • Abstract: Blame, Mark Hlavacik argues, exerts a paradoxical force within educational policy discourse. As an expression of shared concern, blame can "call people together to take collective action,"1 but when it sounds "ubiquitous, perfunctory, or detached from the bounds of good taste by the gamesmanship of mass persuasion," blame "not only fails to persuade, but also undermines the democratic culture it relies upon to make change in the world."2 Although not employing epideictic lenses, critics of educational discourse affirm Hlavacik's assessment by demonstrating how reform blame, despite its stated concern with cultivating public debate, forecloses this debate by narrowly framing it in service to "the war of ideas," or ...

  • "I Come from Georgia": Andrew Cobb Erwin's Southern Resistance to the Ku
           Klux
    • Abstract: In Madison Square Garden in June 1924, a short three-minute speech changed everything. While a battle-scarred Alabamian went toe-to-toe with a long-time rival and a retired-to-Florida midwesterner droned on, an elegant tycoon-backed Californian rose above the fray. Among them all was one Georgia newcomer who articulated an innovative strategy for dealing with the invisible white supremacists when, for a moment, they happened to be the most visible. Andrew Cobb Erwin's speech to the 1924 Democratic National Convention provides a model for resistance to powerful yet regressive voices reinforcing and cloaking white supremacy.Too few examples exist in our rhetorical canon for challenging that trained incapacity known ...

  • A Way Forward: Reflections on the Presidency and Presidential Campaigns
    • Abstract: The 2016 presidential election campaign continues to be as vehemently debated and divisive as its outcome, the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The ramifications of Donald Trump's election and the hotly contested Republican and Democratic nominating campaigns continue to reverberate through the United States and, indeed, the rest of the world. Even in 2020, many of the issues debated on the campaign trail in 2015 and 2016, such as Russian interference, white nationalism, Iran, and health care, continue to dominate news cycles and the collective consciousness of America. Democratic presidential candidates for the 2020 election are expected to speak to their electability against ... Read More

  • Eloquent Students: Rhetorical Practices at the Uppsala Student Nations
           1663–2010 by Lars Burman (review)
    • Abstract: Lars Burman's Eloquent Students: Rhetorical Practices at the Uppsala Student Nations 1663–2010 adds to rhetoric's robust pedagogical lineage by analyzing the forms of rhetorical education that developed within student groups at Sweden's oldest academic institution, Uppsala University. Burman examines students' learning and practice of rhetoric within Uppsala's studentnationer (student nations)—unique campus organizations for social life and academic development whose membership was historically based on region. Drawing on rich, though fragmented, archival records from these organizations, Burman offers an engaging analysis of students' multifaceted rhetorical education that moves across more than three centuries of ...

  • Everest Effect: Nature, Culture, Ideology by Elizabeth Mazzolini (review)
    • Abstract: As dominant as Mount Everest's physical presence is on the Himalayan range, it undoubtedly looms even larger in the public imagination. Over the past several decades, Everest has achieved commercial success as the subject of countless books, documentary films, reality television series, and more. This reverence, however, also lends to another common circulation of Everest in the public sphere—its downfall and degradation at the hands of an unsustainable commercial climbing industry. The tons of garbage, litter, and dead bodies that cover the mountain are just as common as its majesty. Reverence for Everest as a site of pure, unadulterated natural force breeds cynicism about the clash between nature and capitalism—a ... Read More

  • Under Pressure: Coal Industry Rhetoric and Neoliberalism by Jen Schneider
           et al. (review)
    • Abstract: In Under Pressure: Coal Industry Rhetoric and Neoliberalism, Jen Schneider, Steve Schwarze, Peter K. Bsumek, and Jennifer Peeples examine the rhetorical strategies used by the coal industry to manage mounting pressures from environmental movements and government regulators. Their core aim is to expand "environmental communication, corporate advocacy, and the public discourse surrounding climate change" beyond analyses of climate denial to incorporate "the ideological dimensions of industry rhetoric," specifically, "neoliberalism" (6). Without dismissing "merchants of doubt," Schneider et al. contend neoliberal ideology has played an essential but overlooked role in coal industry public advocacy. Analyzing the ... Read More

As they reviewed their earlier projects, the authors examined not only Obama's speeches but also their own efforts to analyze those speeches, resulting in generative discussions about process and positionality.David Frank and Mark McPhail show how the response to their earlier article—the first scholarly analysis of Obama's speeches—illustrates the "enduring 'color line' in scholarship," positing that, in popular media, "scholarly arguments are distorted, contorted, and misread because of racial impulses and pathologies" (19). They close with ... Read More

  • Rhetoric's Pragmatism: Essays in Rhetorical Hermeneutics by Steven
           Mailloux (review)
    • Abstract: During the past 25 years, the connections between American pragmatism and rhetoric have been explored by a range of different scholars in philosophy, communication studies, and English. Steven Mailloux's work has been at the center of conversations about the intersection of rhetoric and pragmatism, and his latest collection of essays, Rhetoric's Pragmatism, makes the case for why we should continue to attend to this intersection. Mailloux has frequently written about "rhetorical hermeneutics," which he sees as a mode of using "rhetoric to practice theory by doing history" (1). His "rhetorical hermeneutics" is also an argument about how rhetorical perspectives and the pragmatist tradition work together. The title of ... Read More

  • Museum Rhetoric: Building Civic Identity in National Spaces by M.
           Elizabeth Weiser (review)
    • Abstract: M. Elizabeth Weiser's Museum Rhetoric: Building Civic Identity in National Spaces examines the ways in which national museums function to construct civic identity through a set of display strategies centered on the promotion of a society's shared values. In multicultural, pluralistic societies in which diverse and often contradictory memories "compete" for inclusion in the public sphere, the production of historical narratives centered on the assumption of a shared identity is necessarily complicated and fraught. Nevertheless, Weiser comprehensively and methodically demonstrates the ways in which these museums use a variety of rhetorical strategies that deploy history as a means of articulating the commonalities ...

  • Women Bishops and Rhetorics of Shalom: A Whole Peace by Leland G. Spencer
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book both contributes to scholarship on women rhetors working within the religious realm and analyzes women bishops' rhetoric of shalom. Spencer explicates how/why shalom is a capacious concept and "Judaism's highest aspiration for the world" (17). To make this case, Spencer identifies shalom's theological and rhetorical nature in chapter 1 and then unpacks "[its] potential … as a tool for feminist activism" (18). Weaving these two foci, Spencer sheds light on rhetorical concepts and exigences pertinent to peace, including dehumanization and exclusion, ethos and legitimate authority, identification and constitutive rhetoric, and prophetic irony and civility.Chapter 1 introduces shalom's multifaceted-ness and ...

  • Voices of the UK Left: Rhetoric, Ideology and the Performance of Politics
           ed. by Judi Atkins and John Gaffney (review)
    • Abstract: Social democracy is in crisis across Western Europe," begins the final chapter of Voices of the UK Left: Rhetoric, Ideology and the Performance of Politics (231). This sense of crisis is captured in many of the essays in this book edited by Judi Atkins and John Gaffney. The common thread woven throughout is that when faced with political, environmental, or economic problems, the left responds with a rhetorical performance that impacts political ideology by utilizing appeals to ethos, pathos, and logos. The editors of this volume have clear goals: to demonstrate how political figures use rhetoric to connect with audiences and create leadership personas; to reinterpret Aristotle's modes of persuasion and expand the ...

  • The Mark of Criminality: Rhetoric, Race, and Gangsta Rap in the
           War-on-Crime Era by Bryan J. McCann (review)
    • Abstract: Recently, I had the opportunity to teach chapters from Bryan McCann's book, The Mark of Criminality: Rhetoric, Race, and Gangsta Rap in the War-on-Crime Era. Although most of my students were not yet born when gangsta rap erupted on the West Coast, McCann's account resonated with their growing awareness of race, privilege, and white supremacy circulating in U.S. public culture. Reflecting on his own appreciation of rap music's capacity to critique the pervasive "mark of criminality" attached to black men in the United States, McCann demonstrates how the "mark of criminality" functions to overdetermine black bodies as deviant and dangerous and, in turn, justify state-sanctioned violence against people of color. In ... Read More

  • Donald J. Trump and the Rhetoric of White Ambivalence
    • Abstract: Addressing a predominantly white crowd in Dimondale, Michigan, presidential candidate Donald J. Trump offered his electoral pitch to wary African American voters. Delivered with an incredulous tone, Trump declared,Look at how much African American communities have suffered under democratic control. To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new, like Trump' What do you have to lose' … You're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, fifty-eight percent of your youth are unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose' And at the end of four years I promise you that I will get over 95 percent of the African American vote, I promise you.1Suffice it say that such ... Read More

  • From Enclave to Counterpublic: Doubled Rhetorical Space and the Civil
           Rights Mass Meeting
    • Abstract: The [mass] meeting moves with an inevitability …—a sense of inner form to it, high moments, low ones, expressions of joy, of sorrow, of mirth, of courage and determination, and expressions again and again of that larger view of life which, spontaneously, out of the hearts of the people, out of their culture, their religion, gave them the grace to have genuine compassion, forbearance, love for their enemies, condemning the sin, not the sinners.Civil rights mass meetings were the weekly, sometimes nightly, gatherings held during the movement to draw people in, keep people together, and testify to anyone watching that African Americans were working toward sociopolitical change. Referred to as the "energy machine" of ... Read More

  • Theistnormativity and the Negation of American Atheists in Presidential
           Inaugural Addresses
    • Abstract: President Barack Obama declared in his first inaugural address: "We know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers."1 For some Americans, this statement was an accurate and welcomed reflection of the diverse views on religion in the United States, but others found aspects of the statement concerning or inaccurate, such as the recognition of atheist Americans.2 As one Fox News host questioned, "Was it all-inclusive to acknowledge non-believers or just offensive'"3 Why, in 2009, could the simple acknowledgment of the existence of atheist Americans be perceived as offensive'Historically, U.S. presidents have framed the ...
