The NC State Chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America (RSA) welcomes you to our first discussion of the spring semester this Friday, Feb. 16th at 12:30 to 1:30-ish PM in the Carolyn Miller Conference room of Ricks Annex.
In light of our Spring Unconference Event “Rhetorical Listening for Social Justice” (more information forthcoming), we will start our first meeting this semester with two readings from Krista Ratcliffe:
- “Rhetorical Listening: A Trope for Interpretive Invention and a ‘Code of Cross-cultural conduct’” (1999)
- Introduction (2005) from Identification, Gender, and Whiteness
Krista Ratcliffe will be Skyping into our discussion from Arizona State University.
Ratcliffe’s research focuses on intersections of rhetoric, feminist theory, and critical race studies. Her work has also appeared in edited collections as well as in academic journals, such as CCC, JAC, Rhetoric Review, College English, and Rhetoric Society Quarterly. Her national service has included serving as president of the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition (CWSHRC) and the Rhetoric Society of America (RSA).
We hope to see you this Friday for this great discussion opportunity.
