Global Rhetorics

Welcome to Global Rhetorics, the podcast that amplifies the work and networks of rhetoricians around the globe. We take a deliberately international and interdisciplinary perspective and interview scholars working in a variety of countries, cultures, and disciplines about their rhetorically-oriented research and teaching.

Global Rhetorics Podcast

The podcast that amplifies the work and networks of underrepresented rhetoricians around the globe.

Mission

We seek to de-center the American and Western voices that dominate rhetorical studies and, in turn, to enrich the field by amplifying the scholarship of underrepresented scholars around the globe.

Join Our Team

We want underrepresented–especially nonwhite and nonwestern–scholars to shape the vision for this podcast and to join our international team.

Diversity

In the makeup of our team, the selection of our guests, and the content of our episodes, we value diversity of race, gender, sexuality, ability, class, and other marginalized groups. We are committed to foregrounding the voices of underrepresented scholars, especially nonwhite and Indigenous scholars and those from the Global South.

Listen to Our Episodes

In the current season, our episodes interview scholars working in a variety of countries, cultures, and disciplines about their rhetorically-oriented research and teaching.
