  • The Lord's Radio: Gospel Music Broadcasting and the Making of Evangelical
           Culture, 1920–1960 by Mark Ward Sr. Jefferson (review)
    • Abstract: In The Lord's Radio, Mark Ward seeks to tell the story of the rise of evangelical popular culture from the context of radio. Ward makes the case that during the golden age of radio, gospel radio music helped create an evangelical interpretive community comprising an audience bound together by the shared interpretation of radio. He supports this in his historical analysis of the period between 1920 and 1960—a period of evangelical popular culture that has received little scholarly attention; however, Ward argues, it is key to understanding "the subculture that midcentury evangelicals created and that became the foundation for the evangelical 'parallel universe' of today" (13).The book is written as a historical ...

  • Lecturing the Atlantic: Speech, Print, and an Anglo-American Commons,
           1830–1870 by Tom F. Wright (review)
    • Abstract: Promoted as a means of education, entertainment, and civic participation, popular lectures were a cornerstone of public life for many communities in the nineteenth century in the United States. Throughout his extensively researched and well-written book, Tom F. Wright draws from foundational literature that has primarily explored the lyceum as a common experience constitutive of national identity and culture. Yet Lecturing the Atlantic: Speech, Print, and an Anglo-American Commons, 1830–1870 demonstrates the significance of viewing nineteenth-century lecture culture through the lens of its transatlantic themes. Centering on what he calls the "Anglo-American commons," Wright contends that lecture performances ... Read More

  • Lucretia Mott Speaks: The Essential Speeches and Sermons ed. by
           Christopher Densmore, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: Lucretia Coffın Mott (1793–1880), noted orator, is well known for her work with Elizabeth Cady Stanton in organizing the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention declaring women's equality with men. However, she was also a tireless Quaker preacher and an activist for abolition, peace, and universal education. She is important to the history of rhetoric for both her prominent career and the diverse topics and range of audiences she addressed.In Mott's case, the role of audience was crucial because records of her speeches survive only through transcriptions; following Quaker practice, she spoke spontaneously (xi). From 190 lectures in manuscript archives, newspapers, and other sources, the editors of Lucretia Mott Speaks: The ... Read More

  • Bodies in Flux: Scientific Methods for Negotiating Medical Uncertainty by
           Christa Teston (review)
    • Abstract: In Bodies in Flux: Scientifıc Methods for Negotiating Medical Uncertainty, Christa Teston presents a pivotal text about the intersections of rhetoric, cancer care, and the biomedical backstage of contemporary medicine. Teston focuses on methods of visualizing, assessing, synthesizing, and computing evidence in "laboratories and other predeliberative spaces where biomedical matter is materialized" to study "assemblages of people, bodies, practices, and objects involved in cocreating (or maintaining) a sense of order from biological chaos" (17). Teston brings our attention to the collaborations of human, nonhuman, and computational actors that influence deliberative processes in cancer care, acknowledging that the ... Read More

  • Food, Feminisms, Rhetorics ed. by Melissa A. Goldthwaite (review)
    • Abstract: Food is ripe for rhetorical investigation. From food advertising to the makeup of grocery stores to the foods we ate (and did not eat) as children, food messaging surrounds us. The foods we eat, Goldwaithe argues in Food, Feminisms, Rhetorics, are tied to our body image, "culture, religion, region, economics, and gender roles" (2). Food, often without our conscious awareness, is an essential part of our identity and relationships. In the past decade, rhetoricians have begun to take notice of this, drawing more attention to the myriad ways that food is rhetorical. Food, Feminisms, Rhetorics argues that an essential part of understanding how food functions rhetorically is understanding how it is gendered and by ... Read More

  • Craft Obsession: The Social Rhetorics of Beer by Jeff Rice (review)
    • Abstract: When a presidential tweet can promote, mis-state, amplify, or contradict an important policy position, scholars of public rhetoric may be tempted to fıt social media forms into familiar frameworks, if only to address our strange new networked world. In Craft Obsession: The Social Rhetorics of Beer, Jeff Rice invites readers to resist that temptation by giving in to other frameworks. The foremost of these is beer—the book is, above all, an exploration of Rice's complex affective relationship with craft beer. Although that may sound, as Rice acknowledges, "self-indulgent" (177), the exploration enables him to address the small stories, instant pleasures, and acts of sharing that constitute our attachments to social ...

  • Heavy: The Obesity Crisis in Cultural Context by Helene A. Shugart
           (review)
    • Abstract: The same corporate food industries that sell mega-calorie meals also sell diet cookbooks, low-calorie meal alternatives, fat-burning pills, and weight-loss programs. Television shows feature unattainable body types, and the commercials beseech spectators to consume the same foods thought to be the cause of America's obesity crisis. How are Americans to make sense of these contradictory messages' Depending on which narrative one fınds convincing, the obesity crisis is caused by caloric imbalance, environmental factors, genetic predetermination, culture, emotional distress, psychological problems, and/or moral weakness. In Heavy: The Obesity Crisis in Cultural Context, Helene Shugart disentangles the ... Read More

    • Abstract: On February 10, 2007, Barack Obama announced he was running for president in a speech in Springfield, Illinois, the state capital where Lincoln delivered his "house divided" address. One often-overlooked incident immediately preceding his announcement was the curious revelation that Obama had originally asked the Reverend Jeremiah Wright to deliver the invocation but abruptly withdrew the invitation after reports of Wright's "radicalism" had appeared. Wright, Obama's pastor and the source for the title of Obama's book, The Audacity of Hope, was miffed with his sudden dismissal. The candidate reportedly explained to ... Read More

  • The Sunshine of Human Rights: Hubert Humphrey at the 1948 Democratic
           Convention
    • Abstract: Trains mattered then, and their stations did as well, massive monuments to civic pride. The Minneapolis Great Northern Depot "was cavernous, huge arches in a high-ceilinged waiting room," and that day better than 2,000 people greeted Mayor Hubert Humphrey upon his triumphant return from the 1948 Democratic National Convention. His eloquent address called on Democrats "to get out of the shadows of states' rights and to walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights." Spellbound delegates endorsed the liberal civil rights platform plank. Future U.S. senator Paul Douglas called the speech "the greatest political oration in the history of the country, with the possible exception of William Jennings Bryan's ... Read More

  • A Vision of Violence in General Orders No. 100
    • Abstract: On July 4, 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt stood before a Pennsylvania crowd to declare an end to America's fight in the Philippines, praising the "humanity and kindness" displayed by U.S. troops.1 Despite Roosevelt's assurances of "civilized warfare," a national debate was unfolding. Americans, disturbed by accounts of extreme violence meted out to Filipinos, questioned the use of martial law against the fledgling nation.2 General Orders No. 100, the prevailing guide for military conduct also known as the "Lieber Code,"3 stood at the core of these debates.On one side, anti-imperialists such as Moorfield Storey and Julian Cod-man publicized incidents of violence, arguing that the razing of villages, the killing ...

  • "To Fly Under Borrowed Colours": Insulin Discovery Accounts, Scientific
           Credit, and the Nobel Prize
    • Abstract: She was 15 years old, and she was dying. Her physicians knew quite well what the condition was: she was diabetic. In the summer of 1922, when Elizabeth Hughes was brought to Toronto, she weighed 45 pounds, partly due to a starvation diet that was the sole means to delay, though not prevent, death. 1 Her body was awash with sugar, which could not gain access to the inside of the cells where it could be used to provide sustenance. What caused this condition' Strong circumstantial evidence accrued pointing to the pancreas as the site of the problem but with no clear proof that this organ was the source ... Read More
