  • The Rhetoric of Jesus Writing in the Story of the Woman Accused of Adultery (John 7.53–8.11)

    Thomas Deans

    Abstract: Only once in the Bible is Jesus represented as writing. This essay focuses on that brief, intriguing episode (John 7.53–8.11) to explore the rhetorical power of writing as apublic performance, the interplay of orality and literacy, the relationship of writing to reflection, and the rhetoric of silence.

  • Flattening Effects: Composition’s Multicultural Imperative and the Problem of Narrative Coherence [FREE ACCESS]

    Jonathan Alexander and Jacqueline Rhodes

    Abstract: This essay argues that multiculturalism-inflected composition classrooms often “flatten” or efface radical alterities with which students—and teachers—should be encouraged
    to grapple. The authors demonstrate some of the limitations of such pedagogies, offer examples of provocative texts that celebrate difference—not identity—as a powerful
    critical and compositional tool for exploring subjectivity and justice, and call for a shift toward acknowledging our potential incommensurability and unknowability as a fruitful
    way to engage issues of social justice.
