Description

Reinventing (with) Theory in Rhetoric and Writing Studies collects original scholarship that adopt the practices of inventive theorizing that characterize Sharon Crowley’s work. Doing theory, in this sense, entails surveying the common sense of a community and discovering available means of persuasion. Reinventing (with) Theory shows that doing theory is a continual process that is indispensable for understanding situations and their potential significance, the ultimate goal of which is not to prescribe certain actions but to ascertain what options exist to see the world differently, to discover new possibilities for thought and action, and to effect change in the world.
