One of the premier education publishing groups, Peter Lang Publishing is

explore these emerging domains and to create awareness of key trends and

Rhetorical scholars have begun uncovering the many marginalized rhetorical
traditions silenced by the homogenous nature of histories, reading and
writing new histories of the rhetorical tradition through frames from
