Reflections 16.2 Cover.indd

Karen Springsteen’s essay “Veterans’ Writing and a Rhetoric of Witnessing” is included in the newest issue of Reflections: A Journal of Public Rhetoric, Civic Writing and Service Learning (Vol 16, No. 2), a special issue dedicated to veteran’s writing. From the abstract:

“Four examples of Iraq veterans’ self-sponsored writing and media compositions are reviewed in order to develop a rhetoric of ‘witnessing’ (Oliver, “Witnessing and Testimony” 80) with which to engage veterans’ writing. Particular attention is paid to how this rhetoric can help reframe anxieties that accompany faculty work with veterans in composition classes and in higher education more generally.”
