Next steps : creation and strategic contemplation of a women's rhetorics course
Knudson, Laura Adams
Master of Arts
As a result of continuing and fruitful recovery and integration of women's voices into the study of rhetoric, there is a newly burgeoning exigence for scholars to undertake the next steps towards normalizing the study of women's rhetorics in the discipline. Much as new teachers of composition have need of "hands-on" material, so too do the new teachers of women's rhetorics. There is a definitive gap in the scholarship of how best to teach a women's rhetorics class, which this thesis intends to fill. Additionally, scholars have declared a need for strategic contemplation of our approaches to research, teaching, and scholarship, and this thesis works to argue in favor of that as well as to engage practically in it.
