9780815633242: Disability Rhetoric (Critical Perspectives on Disability)

Disability Rhetoric is the first book to view rhetorical theory and history through the lens of disability studies. Traditionally, the body has been seen as, at best, a rhetorical distraction; at worst, those whose bodies do not conform to a narrow range of norms are disqualified from speaking. Yet, Dolmage argues that communication has always been obsessed with the meaning of the body and that bodily difference is always highly rhetorical. Following from this rewriting of rhetorical history, he outlines the development of a new theory, affirming the ideas that all communication is embodied, that the body plays a central role in all expression, and that greater attention to a range of bodies is therefore essential to a better understanding of rhetorical histories, theories, and possibilities.

About the Author:

Jay Timothy Dolmage is associate professor of English at the University of Waterloo. He is the founding editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies.

Review:

Disability Rhetoric is well-crafted, intricately assembled, and carefully presented. Through it Dolmage establishes a long heritage of rhetorical crafters, people whose extraordinary bodies enabled the cultivation of rhetorical skill. (Rhetoric Review)
