Lydia J. Roberts's Nutrition Research and the Rhetoric of "Democratic" Science
Jack, Jordynn
College Composition and Communication, v61 n1 p109-129 Sep 2009
This article examines nutritionist Lydia J. Roberts's use of the "democratic approach" as a rhetorical strategy both to build solidarity among scientists and to enact participatory research in a rural Puerto Rican community. This example suggests that participatory scientific methodologies are not necessarily democratic but may function rhetorically to serve nondemocratic purposes. (Contains 3 figures and 7 notes.)
