Women's contribution to rhetoric throughout Western history, like so many other aspects of women's experience, has yet to be fully explored.

The Right to literacy by Andrea A Lunsford( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 29 essays which grew out of presentations delivered at a conference on the right to literacy whose participants were invited to consider differing definitions and historical understandings of literacy and the political, pedagogical, and theoretical implications of the many approaches to literacy education that have been taken both in the United States and abroad. The book's first part, "Contexts," explores the national, local, and professional contexts of literacy; it raises critical questions both about the large social and political perspectives that inform the understanding of literacy that is generally accepted in America and about the social and political conditions that restrain or enable the realization of literacy. Part 2, "Speaking out of the Silences," explores how literacy is denied not only by overt censorship but also by the subtler and more insidious forces of racism, sexism, homophobia, and elitism; these essays offer ways of helping others to envision and attain the power to speak out. Part 3, "Literacy and Its Enemies, Illiteracy and Its Friends," offers critical perspectives on those conceptions of literacy and methods of literacy education that ultimately subvert its attainment as a right of citizens. Part 4, "Creating and Sustaining Literacy," offers curricular and pedagogical models for successful literacy efforts at different educational levels and in diverse cultural situations. The volume concludes with a synthesis of themes and an articulation of concerns that require continued critical scrutiny. (Sr)

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lunsford is a scholar of rhetoric and composition, and many undergraduates taking courses in those subjects have used her textbooks. Here she helps us see that writing is not just a mode of communication, persuasion, and expression, but a web of meanings and practices that shape our lives. Lunsford tells how she gained a new respect for our digital culture's three v's - vocal, visual, verbal - while helping design and teach a course in multimedia writing. On the importance of having a linguistically pluralistic society, Lunsford draws links between such varied topics as the English Only movement, language extinction, Ebonics, and the text messaging shorthand "133t.""--Jacket

Landmark essays on rhetoric and feminism : 1973-2000( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Feminism" and "rhetoric" have not always been overlapping terms. While neglected as subjects of scholarly interest for many years, women were nonetheless developing rhetorical practices and traditions all along. In recent decades women writers, speakers, and feminist scholars have forged new theories of and practices for feminist rhetoric. These women have struggled to see, re-shape, and re-deploy the rhetorical tradition in ways that not only admit but embrace and celebrate women and feminist understandings to the benefit of all people. This volume is the culmination of much of the work done by those scholars. Edited by the leading experts in field, Cheryl Glenn and Andrea A. Lunsford, Landmark Essays on Rhetoric and Feminism earns its significance in several key ways: it includes work done by scholars from departments of communication, English, and writing studies as well as a variety of public intellectuals; it traces a series of encounters between rhetoric and feminism during the last three decades; and it highlights five themes that represent the history of encounters between rhetoric and feminism including (1) recovery and recuperation, (2) methods and methodologies, (3) practices and performances, (4) pedagogical applications and implications, and (5) new theories and histories"--
