Feminist Rhetorical Practices: In Search of Excellence
Kirsch, Gesa E.; Royster, Jacqueline J.
College Composition and Communication, v61 n4 p640-672 Jun 2010
In this article, we undertake three critical tasks: First, we delineate major shifts in feminist rhetorical inquiry, thus describing a new and changed landscape of the field. Second, we argue that as feminist rhetorical practices have shifted, so have standards of excellence. To articulate excellence in feminist rhetorical studies, we draw attention to interconnections among three critical terms of engagement: "critical imagination," "strategic contemplation," and "social circulation." Third, we propose an enhanced inquiry model for understanding, interpreting, and evaluating feminist rhetorical work in rhetoric and writing studies. (Contains 12 notes.)
