  • Rebooting Rhetoric and Public Address

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the summer of 2019, the editor of Rhetoric & Public Affairs (R&PA) posted a statement on the National Communication Association's (NCA's) listserv that was connected to a controversy within that association concerning its process for selecting Distinguished Scholars.1 That statement set off a firestorm of protest and eventually led to the editor's resignation. The manifold problems with the journal were revealed by but were not limited to the views expressed in that statement. The collective efforts to first save and then to reimagine the journal were and are directed at preserving the journal's position within the field but also included doing so in a way that both provides a more inclusive version of the ...

  • My Sanctified Imagination: Carter G. Woodson and a Speculative
           (Rhetorical) History of African American Public Address, 1925–1960

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1925, Herbert A. Wichelns published The Literary Criticism of Oratory.1 First appearing in an anthology dedicated to the scholarship of James Winans, the essay eventually would become recognized as the "founding document for the academic study and discipline of rhetoric."2 According to Amos Kiewe, "the essay Wichelns forwarded sought to carve a space for the criticism of oratory that did not follow the practices of literary criticism but a different kind of criticism that was appreciative of the province of oratory and rhetoric." The essay "found[ed] the discipline of rhetorical studies and identif[ied] its method—rhetorical criticism—as unique and distinct of literary criticism from which it sought a divorce."3 ... Read More

  • The Role of the Critic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In March of 2020, the editors of this special issue asked us to reflect on methods, modes of engagement, and the role of the critic. We were to consider the relationships between critics and texts, critics and contexts, critics and methods, as well as related issues. We sat down for a video call to introduce ourselves and get to know one another's work. Below is a more formal conversation that reflects some of the ideas we discussed during that first talk.It struck me that our earlier conversation revolved around two themes, responsibility and authority. What responsibilities do critics carry and how do they craft the authority to exercise those responsibilities effectively'Let me begin with the responsibility ... Read More

  • Ideology's Absent Shadow: A Conversation about Rhetoric

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Before responding to the questions we discuss below, it may be useful to place our musings in a more historically grounded context. While our intent is to move forward with the ways "ideology" as a concept might be helpful in future scholarly inquiry, its past trajectory is worth noting. The title of Dana Cloud and Joshua Gunn's essay, "W(h)ither Ideology" contains two senses. "Whither" suggests that ideology has a definitive role to play in the future, and the question is where that might take us. If you remove the (h), you get a much different sense of ideology as "withering on the vine." Either option, at that time, was part of the conversation. For their part, Cloud and Gunn argue that the term was no longer an ... Read More

  • Visual Rhetoric in Flux: A Conversation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Thanks so much in participating in this conversation. I want to start with a discussion of how we encountered visual rhetoric. I came to the study of visual rhetoric when I started grad school in 2008 at Northwestern. As a philosophy BA I was already working on and interested in issues of public art, urban politics, and race and ethnicity in the city, but I didn't really know much about the subfield of "visual rhetoric" until I took Robert Hariman's course. In this seminar we largely focused on photography and photojournalism, engaging with Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, and then later taking up scholarship like Ariella Azoulay's work and Hariman and John Lucaites's work.1 That semester I learned about your work ...

  • What Do We Mean by Academic Labor (in Rhetorical Studies)'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We are excited to contribute to the relaunching of Rhetoric & Public Affairs because academic labor usually is absent from special journal issues addressing the state of the discipline. We acknowledge the work and labor (terms we'll distinguish as we go) it took to get to the point where our inclusion is possible: organizing the push for change in editorship; reconstituting the editorship and editorial board; recruiting and developing the essays in this issue; plus, the labor of researching, writing, and revising the pieces. In short, a lot of people did a lot of work/labor to create a space to talk about academic labor in a venue where that hasn't happened.The two of us have been talking to each other for over a ...

  • A Conversation on Activism, Solidarity, and Burnout in the Academy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: So, we were beginning to talk about trying to get oriented in our conversation about activism in the academy and you were mentioning how a particular question regarding activism and survival resonated with you, could you say more about that'Yeah, I will say that for me the activism—I've always felt it and I've always done it. But it really became a very strong part of my being when I entered the academy, dealing with microaggressions, racialized sexual harassment, and fighting that. So, one of the things I always go back to is that bell hooks talks about coming to theory to understand what she was going through.1 And for me, it's like the theory and the practice in the activism right there. From fighting that, the ... Read More

  • Rhetoric and Sexual Violence: A Conversation with Annie Hill and Carol A.
           Stabile

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As scholars who have taken public stands against sexual harassment and violence in academia, especially in rhetoric and communication studies, Annie Hill and Carol A. Stabile spoke in July 2020 about this ongoing struggle, the recent cultural and political shifts in the wake of #MeToo, and the obstacles that scholar-activists face when challenging oppression.In 2017, #MeToo emerged online as a movement in response to sexual harassment and assault allegations made against famous men. Specifically, allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein moved women to disclose experiences of sexual violence, in their recent and distant pasts, which underscored the major impacts of this abuse. Why do you think the Me Too ... Read More

      Abstract: Call it fate, kismet, or kairos: in the summer of 2019, two scholars of color simultaneously were leaders in two allied professional associations: Kent A. Ono as first vice president of the National Communication Association (NCA), and Kirt H. Wilson as president of the Rhetoric Society of America (RSA). This happenstance was novel in its own right, but it soon attained added significance when a firestorm emerged after NCA's Executive Committee altered the process for selecting the association's Distinguished Scholars. The social media and email-list debate that followed scrutinized institutional practices, most directly NCA, but also RSA, the International Communication Association (ICA), and related professional ...

  • Why "Anticolonial" International Rhetorical Studies'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the last few years, communication and rhetorical studies journals have dedicated a significant number of pages to addressing structural racism in the discipline. In one forum in the flagship Quarterly Journal of Speech, Darrel Wanzer-Serrano surveys the ways "rhetorical studies lacks a reflexiveness about the manners in which its theories and institutional practices reinforce white normativity."1 He demonstrates how the epistemic foundation of the field is structured by presumptions of what theory is "appropriate, relevant, creative, and welcomed," presumptions that erase theories and practices of "scholars of color from our and other fields (and especially from the Global South)" and produce an "apartheid of ...

      Abstract: Listen, listen oh sniper, this is my neck and this is my head.In the early months of 2011, the Syrian revolution erupted like a fever in the country, to the shock of many who had taken the absence of political resistance as unthinking assent toward the persecution of the Assad regime. Many doubted the Arab spring would reach Syria, a single-party police state where civil society was severely curtailed and the military was deeply infused with the regime.1 Eventually, the aggrieved segments of Syrian society took to the streets in protest. As put by musical icon Samih Choukair, "the youth o'mother heard that freedom was at the gate, so they went out to chant for it."2 Though initially only demanding political ... Read More

  • Situated Listening: Toward a More Just Rhetorical Criticism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There are people "out there" who have voices. They speak in languages and practices that we don't ordinarily try to hear. The problem is our ability to hear different speech. The issue is that they're already speaking…The problem is really with our listening practices.The two officers who shot and killed Magdiel Sanchez "did not hear witnesses yelling that he was deaf."2 The 35-year-old Oklahoma City resident was well known in his neighborhood until his life was taken by police who were searching for his father. Like half the people killed by police in the United States, Sanchez was disabled, in that he was deaf and had a learning disability.3 To communicate, his neighbors recounted, Sanchez often carried a ...

           the Future of Public Memory Scholarship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As Kirt Wilson recently noted, contemporary memory and commemorative scholarship can sometimes be too narrowly focused on the centrality of material visual display to a historical narrative's persuasive power or institutional ideological structures, a tendency that ultimately valorizes and reinforces dominant narratives.1 In the face of that practice, I ask: How can we understand the extent to which institutionalized histories reinforce and stabilize hegemonic ideals of systems and structures while (dis)placing others' There are several potential answers to this question; the one I want to focus on here has to do with methodological choices. More specifically, I argue for an expansion of the focus of memory and ... Read More

  • Digitality, Diversity, and The Future of Rhetoric and Public Address

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The "long spring" of 2020 brought a global pandemic, transnational economic implosion, and political polarization in intensifying hues of absurdity. To the backdrop of doomsday news, state and city lockdowns underlined the divided labor force of a digital world: while professional "knowledge workers" video-conferenced from home, "essential workers" in sanitation, food supply, and infrastructure faced impossible choices between health and livelihoods. In these circumstances, a history of systemic and physical violence perpetrated against Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and poor communities was laid bare. Evidence mounted that these communities were disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 virus, dying at far higher ... Read More

  • Metaphors To Live and Die By

      Abstract: A man who has a language consequently possesses the world expressed and implied by that language.1Every field of inquiry, regardless of its ideological positioning, holds a set of questions which, more often than not, inform the deep structure of disciplinary thought, demarcating the thinkable from the unthinkable, the thought from the unthought.From the vantage point of the colonized, a position from which I write, and choose to privilege, the term "research" is inextricably linked to European imperialism and colonialism. The word itself, "research," is probably one of the dirtiest words in the indigenous world's vocabulary.3Scholars advocating for a transformative and decolonized racial rhetorical criticism have ...

  • In Search of Good Humans, Speaking Well: Communication's Ableism Problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Rhetoricians want to win. The academic study of rhetoric in U.S. communication departments includes enough scholars who were once collegiate debaters to make this observation uncontroversial; the college debaters who once traveled to argue against each other in empty university classrooms on weekends now argue with each other in journals, conferences, and association list-servs. There is thus a particular genealogical mindset in rhetoric that wants to win arguments, points, tournaments, followers, likes, and so on. Similarly, outside of the debate tradition per se, communication scholars who study the way rhetoric works in culture from a variety of conceptual lenses might also say that rhetoric itself wants to win. ...

           Identity in Ali Wong's Standup Comedy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: She is loud, crass, and unapologetic; a middle finger to just about every stereotype of Asian American women. For decades, such a statement would have described Margaret Cho, a long-standing icon of Asian American comedy and standup comedy writ large. Today, it describes Ali Wong. Once having such minimal draw that she had to sell tickets to her comedy shows on Groupon at heavily discounted rates, Wong was catapulted into fame after the 2016 release of her first Netflix standup special, Baby Cobra.1 Her career as the "queen of comedy" progressed rapidly from there: within the next three years, she would go on to release a second special, Hard Knock Wife (2018); cowrite and costar in the romantic comedy titled ...

      Abstract: The offices in which we have written this essay are on stolen land. We live and work in a place, now called "Utah" by the settler nation, that belongs to Ute, Shoshone, Diné (Navajo), Goshute, and Paiute peoples who populated these lands since time immemorial. There are now nine Indigenous nations that share borders with the state of Utah: Confederated Tribes of Goshute, Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe, Northwestern Band of Shoshone Nation, Skull Valley Band of Goshute, Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, White Mesa Community, and Navajo Nation.

  • Decolonizing Regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At least since the turn of the century, rhetoric graduate programs and journal spaces like this attempted to internationalize and diversify the study of rhetoric and public address. The process can be painfully slow and often relies on one set of scholars or one set of works "doing international studies" and another set of scholars or journals "doing [traditional] studies." That there is even still an implicit "American" study points out a problem—a problem with colonialism at its root. If the field interrogated its colonial identity, this demarcation might give way. The field abstracted antiquity's rhetorical terms and set them squarely on the shoulders of modern settler ideology—the nation and its ... Read More

  • Rhetoric for Earthly Coexistence: Imagining an Ecocentric Rhetoric

      Abstract: We are living in a period of earth history defined by enormous ecological devastation and profound planetary transformation. Tens of thousands of plant and animal species are living on the edge of extinction; habitats and ecosystems on every continent are degrading; and the earth systems that have underwritten the entirety of human existence—including the climate system—are shifting. The official description of Rhetoric & Public Affairs now reflects this unfortunate reality and unambiguously embraces, for the first time in 23 years, environmental matters. The inclusion of ecological issues in the journal's description indicates an emergent sense of disciplinary responsibility for the earth itself. What obligations ... Read More

What should we be calling made up stories instead'" With a hint of a smile Jamieson said, "I'd like to call them 'viral deception' and I'd like to use the 'VD' acronym." Stelter laughed, "venereal disease'" Jamieson nodded and explained, "We don't want to get venereal disease. If you find someone whose got it, you want to quarantine them and cure 'em. You don't want to transmit it. By virtue of saying 'fake news' we ask the question, 'well, what is real news'' and you invite people to label everything they disapprove of ... Read More

      Abstract: In the summer of 2019, as our field was beginning to reckon with #RhetoricSoWhite, I was asked if I might be interested in hosting the 2020 Public Address Conference (PAC) at the University of Kansas. This was after the University of Georgia, who was already slated to host it, had to cancel because of a growing boycott caused by their plan to honor Martin Medhurst, whose open letter about the importance of merit over diversity sparked a summer of change.1 Although I had not submitted a formal bid to host PAC in 2020 to Professors Lisa Flores and Phaedra Pezzullo, who along with their colleagues had hosted the 2018 PAC at the University of Colorado, Boulder, I had expressed interest about the possibility.
