Rhetorics, Literacies, and Narratives of Sustainability by Peter N. (Arizona State University, USA) Goggin


Rhetorics, Literacies, and Narratives of Sustainability by Peter N. (Arizona State University, USA) Goggin

In this volume, rhetoricians, literacy scholars, and humanists have come together to examine the complex discursive constructions of sustainability. Touching on topics including conservation efforts in specific locales; social and political constructions of rhetorical place and space; community literacy; historical and archival analysis of institutional politics, policies, and practices concerning the environment and economic growth and development; town planning and zoning issues; and rhetorics of environmental remediation and sustainability, this collection of essays provides rhetoricians and environmentalists a window into the complex and often contradictory arena of discourse on sustainability.


The freshness of the outlook offered by the contributors is matched by the range of their methods and topics and the inventiveness of their observations and conclusions. -- M. Jimmie Killingsworth, Rhetoric Review Collectively, the essays offer a clearer definition of the potentialities and problems associated with the nebulous term sustainability by offering humanities scholars places to hang their hats, so to speak, within interdisciplinary spaces addressing the topic of sustainability. -- Lynee Lewis Gaillet, College Composition and Communication
