Drama in the Archives: Rereading Methods, Rewriting History
Glenn, Cheryl; Enoch, Jessica
College Composition and Communication, v61 n2 p321-342 Dec 2009
This article examines the historiographic trajectory of rhetoric and composition studies by analyzing archival research practices, using Kenneth Burke's dramatistic pentad as our analytical tool. We rely on a Burkean framework of "scenes, acts, agents, agencies, purposes, and attitudes" to invigorate our understanding of historiographic methods and to open up new possibilities for future histories of rhetoric and composition. (Contains 11 notes.)
