"Movement as Motive": Self Definition and Social Advocacy in Social Movement Autobiographies.
Griffin, Charles J. G.
Western Journal of Communication, v64 n2 p148-64 Spr 2000
Contributes to scholarship advancing the understanding of human communication by elaborating a theoretical framework for understanding the synthesis of self-definition and social advocacy in social movement autobiographies. Uses insights from Kenneth Burke and posits that in a rhetorically effective movement autobiography, form enables the rhetorical functions of self-definition and social advocacy to become mutually reinforcing.
