Katherine Field-Rothschild, doctoral candidate in English Composition and Applied Linguistics, has recently published an article in the Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy.
“The rhetorical emergency kit: Engaging ethically with ‘End the Silence’ and protest rhetoric on a campus in crisis,” offers a theoretically based solution to faculty hesitation to engage in difficult dialogs on a campus in crisis. Using the constructs
of Krista Ratcliffe’s language of rhetorical listening through the lens of Freire’s interactive educational framework from the stance of second-wave whiteness studies, this article argues that instructors can engage in ethical discourse in situations
of campus crisis such as vandalism, campus hate crime, instances of micro-aggressions, national tragedy, or other traumatic events.
The article is available online.
