Christopher Wilkey

Looking for chapter proposals for edited collection. Published as part of
the Hampton Press series on Research and Teaching in Rhetoric and
Composition, this edited collection works to theorize and demonstrate how
encounters with writing in the composition classroom and beyond can
intersect productively with activist rhetorical strategies and goals. By
doing so, readers will gain insights into connecting the work of
composition with grassroots social change, using rhetoric that makes
marginalized and disenfranchised voices be taken seriously in the public
arena, finding ways to actualize action as compositionists in their
communities and institutions, and linking service-learning and multimedia
