The Ethics of Power: Feminism in the Composition Classroom: Feminist
discussions often define power not only as a means of domination but also
as a resource for choice. This panel aims to investigate feminist theory
and practice within the classroom and composition and rhetoric theory,
exploring the ways in which feminist discourse adapts and/or supports
discussions on the discourses of power in ethics, argument and civics.
Individual papers on these areas are invited, including: feminist
rhetorics; feminist approaches to maintaining voice and agency; feminist
teaching; first-year writing and feminism; practical and ethical
implications of feminist argument and personal narrative; feminist
research; gendered writing.
