Reading List 1.1.19

Expanding & Complicating the Rhetorical Tradition (53)

Some provisional guiding questions (from fairly broad to more specific) for my research are:
§  How does a feminist orientation influence how rhetorical practices are theorized, particularly rhetorical practices surrounding discourses of technology and labor? Conversely, how might theories of the rhetoric of various technologies (interfaces, platforms, and programming) complicate feminist models of rhetoric?
§  How is literacy portrayed in the teaching of digital rhetorics and programming? What assumptions undergird this portrayal and pedagogical approach? What are the implications of this pedagogical approach for composition, especially given Vee’s argument about the ways in which programming recodes writing?
§  How might a transnational feminist examination of the rhetoric of women’s coding literacy movements (1) productively complicate current discussions of coding literacy within rhetoric and (2) yield insight into the animating ideologies and discursive practices of these movements?


Within the discipline of rhetoric, my primary focus will center on the tranformation of the rhetorical tradition through the creation of new models for understanding language and the non-discursive, analyses of specific sites of rhetorical practice, and feminist theoretical interventions into histories of rhetoric. In Feminist Rhetorical Practices,  Jacqueline Jones Royster and Gesa Kirsch call upon rhetoricians to “operationalize the view of rhetoric as a vibrant and interestingly diverse global interprise” (151). In crafting this list, I hope to understand the rhetorical tradition with particular emphasis on the practices of historically marginalized individuals and communities. Such work naturally extends from an intersectional feminist orientation.

List 2: Methods and Methodologies in Rhetoric and Composition and Literacy Studies (48)


In this list, I first consider the methods and methodologies scholars within rhetoric and composition have used to conduct research, with a focus on qualitative research and ethnography. I anticipate using a mixed-methods approach in my dissertation project, potentially working in contexts material and digital. Next, I narrow in more specifically on literacy studies as an area within rhetoric and composition, considering how literacy has been conceived of historically and how its definition continues to change over time.

Area 3: Rhetorics and Technologies (49)


In the lists above, I consider how the rhetorical tradition has been transformed through new metaphors for understanding language and symbolic action, new perspectives on rhetorical practices, and disciplinary theoretical interventions; then, I move to examine how rhetoric has historically been studied and the interaction between research methods and teaching praxis. In this area, I focus on the ways the rhetorical tradition and methods for research and teaching interact within discourses of technology. Scholars within rhetoric and composition have turned to multimodal, often digital texts, in order to address the changing relationships between writers, texts, and composing technologies. Their work productively intersects with the scholarship in software studies, an interdisciplinary field that Mark Marino defines as “an approach that applies critical hermeneutics to the interpretation of computer code, program architecture, and documentation within a socio-historical context.” Building on the interplay of these two conversations, I turn towards technical writing as one central context where rhetoric and technology meet.
