Gloria AnzaldĂșa's Rhetoric of Ambiguity and Antiracist Teaching
Klotz, Sarah; Whithaus, Carl
Composition Studies, v43 n2 p72-91 Fall 2015
This article addresses approaches to antiracist pedagogy employed in a rhetoric course at a large public research university. Drawing upon our experience teaching a diverse group of students from a common text shared across disciplines, we show how and why students resisted binary constructions of race and racism and instead formulated an emergent rhetoric of ambiguity to voice and write about their experiences with race in the twenty-first century.
