Rhetorical Identification across Difference and Disability
Hitt, Allison
Composition Forum, v33 Spr 2016
This review essay places Stephanie Kerschbaum's "Toward a New Rhetoric of Difference" and Shannon Walters's "Rhetorical Touch: Disability, Identification, Haptics" in a conversation about how we can more productively identify with and across difference. While they have different theoretical approaches and applications, both Kerschbaum and Walters discuss identification, embracing rather than erasing difference, and the importance of eschewing stereotypes that are harmful to the multiple ways that we encounter and interact with disability and difference in the classroom and in our rhetorical histories and theories.
