In this precise and provocative treatise, Julie Jung augments the understanding and teaching of revision by arguing that the process should entail changing attitudes rather than simply changing texts. Revisionary Rhetoric, Feminist Pedagogy, and Multigenre Texts proposes and demonstrates alternative ways of reading, writing, and teaching that hear silences in such a way as to generate personal, pedagogical, and professional revisions. As both a challenge to prevailing revision pedagogies and an elaboration of contemporary feminist rhetorics, the volume encourages students and instructors to examine their identities as scholars of rhetoric and composition and to question how and why revision is taught.
Jung analyzes feminist texts to identify a revisionary rhetoric that is, at its core, most concerned with creating a space in which to engage productively with issues of difference. This synthesis of feminist theory and revision studies yields a pedagogically useful definition of feminist rhetoric, through which Jung examines the insights afforded by multigenre texts in various related contexts: the academic essay, the discipline of rhetoric and composition studies, feminist composition, and the subfields of English studies including rhetoric and composition, literature, and creative writing. Jung illustrates how multigenre texts demand innovative methods of inquiry because they do not fit the conventions of any single genre. Because genre is inextricably tied to the construction of social identity, she explains, multigenre texts also offer a means for understanding and revising disciplinary identity.
Boldly making a case for the revisionary power of multigenre texts, Jung retheorizes revision as a process of disrupting textual clarity so that differences can be identified, contended with, and perhaps understood. Revisionary Rhetoric, Feminist Pedagogy, and Multigenre Texts makes great strides towards defining feminist rhetoric and ascertaining how revision can be theorized, not just practiced. Jung also provides a multigenre epilogue that explores the usefulness of reconceiving revision as a progression towards wholeness rather than perfection.

About the Author:

Julie Jung is a professor of English at Illinois State University. Her book, Revisionary Rhetoric, Feminist Pedagogy, and Multigenre Texts (SIU Press, 2005), won the 2005 W. Ross Winterowd Award for outstanding book on composition theory. She has contributed articles to College English, enculturation, Rhetoric Review, and other journals.

Review:

“ In Revisionary Rhetoric, Feminist Pedagogy, and Multigenre Texts, Julie Jung very usefully grounds theoretical discussions about ‘ rhetorical listening’ in specific practices of revision that help a writer delay final meaning long enough to hear the different views and voices around her. In doing so, Jung pulls off a difficult task: using just the right words to show us the revisionary value of a writer putting ‘ wrong words’ together.” — Nancy Welch, University of Vermont
