Rhetorics of Displacement: Constructing Identities in Forced Relocations
Katrina M. Powell
Abstract: Forced displacement has often involved the use of rhetoric, both by government institutions and by people who struggle not only to survive displacement, but also to resist it. The author analyzes such discourses through three case studies: Spike Lee’s film When the Levees Broke, Dave Eggers’s novel What Is the What, and a documentary she helped produce on families displaced by eminent domain when the Shenandoah National Park was created.

Evocative Objects: Reflections on Teaching, Learning, and Living in Between
Doug Hesse, Nancy Sommers, and Kathleen Blake Yancey
Abstract: By examining in turn a son’s craft project, a family photograph, and an image of tectonic plates, the authors demonstrate how objects can elicit rhetorical invention.

Reconsiderations: “Brave Words”: Rehabilitating the Veteran-Writer
Liam Corley
Abstract: The author, a college English professor, explains how his military service in Afghanistan left him having to reconsider his identity as a scholarly writer.

Review: Literacy, Rhetoric, Identity, and Agency
Beth Daniell
Abstract: Reviewed are Writing from These Roots: Literacy in a Hmong-American Community by John M. Duffy, and Spiritual Literacy in John Wesley’s Methodism: Reading, Writing, and Speaking to Believe by Vicki Tolar Burton.
