ENG 346 Feminist Rhetorics: Histories, Intersections, Challenges

3 hours

This course studies how and why women have constructed and communicated critical arguments; in other words, it studies women’s rhetorical histories and expressions. It examines women’s omission from the canon of Rhetoric and Writing Studies, offers an overview of feminist rhetorical scholars’ recovery of women’s voices, and investigates contemporary feminist work in the field. Students will interrogate how intersectional feminists (especially feminists of color) use rhetorical strategies; what it means to engage in intersectional feminist rhetorical practices; how feminist scholarship and activism overlap; and, how they might consider themselves part of an intersectional feminist rhetorical community.
