Overview

Unpacks the myriad ways rhetorical and communication theories and feminist intersectional approaches impact one another.

Building on the decades of work by women of color and allied feminists, Standing in the Intersection is the first book in more than a decade to bring communication studies and feminist intersectional theories in conversation with one another. The authors in this collection take up important conversations relating to notions of style, space, and audience, and engage with the rhetoric of significant figures, including Carol Moseley Braun, Barbara Jordan, Emma Goldman, and Audre Lorde, as well as crucial contemporary issues such as campus activism and political asylum. In doing so, they ask us to complicate notions of space, location, and movement; to be aware of and explicit with regard to our theorizing of intersecting and contradictory identities; and to think about the impact of multiple dimensions of power in understanding audiences and audiencing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If a new generation of scholars embraces intersectional perspectives as personal as well as scholarly outlooks, then the future of feminist communication research will be substantively different from its past, and every back story entailed in that research, each feminist researcher’s lived experience, will be affirming and empowering. This is the transformative potential entailed in this book, and I look forward to seeing it realized.” — from the Foreword by Marsha Houston

“Together, the essays in this collection demonstrate innovative ways by which rhetorical and feminist scholars may better understand the complexities of identity, audience, and discourse.” — Rhetoric and Public Affairs

“This powerful collection … [is] a unique, valuable resource … Highly recommended.” — CHOICE

“This collection provides a concentrated focus on rhetoric and intersectionality that is a valuable resource for critics as well as a point of departure for additional criticism. It also offers a new set of feminist rhetorical studies—something overdue in communication studies.” — Alberto González, coeditor of Our Voices: Essays in Culture, Ethnicity, and Communication, Fifth Edition
