This week we’re examining Jacqueline Jones Royster and Gesa E. Kirsch’s chapter “Feminist Rhetorical Studies as a Robust Interdisciplinary Framework” from Feminist Rhetorical Practices. As you formulate your response, you might one of the following discussion questions helpful:
What does it mean to be interdisciplinary? How is this essential to feminist rhetorical methodology?
- Royster and Kirsch describe gender, race/ethnicity, and status/social class. Is this intersectionality as Crenshaw describes it? How is intersectional research also interdisciplinary?
- How does research on genre and modes of expression intersect with a feminist methodology? How might they inform professional and/or technical writing?
- How is your research interdisciplinary?
