The Racialization of Composition Studies: Scholarly Rhetoric of Race since 1990
Clary-Lemon, Jennifer
College Composition and Communication, v61 n2 pW1-W17 Dec 2009
This piece continues the work of scholars in the field who look to uncover the ideological and textual practices of our dependence on the construct of "race" through racialized metaphors. Analyzing the rhetoric of race in "College Composition and Communication" and "College English" since 1990, I assert that our categorization of what "race" is has grown increasingly vague, despite its use as a commonplace from which to begin scholarly discussions. I argue that we must rearticulate our own racial ideologies in order to become more aware of how we use "race" persuasively for our own purposes. (Contains 1 table and 3 notes.)
