"The personal, as scholars in rhetoric and composition have conceptualized it, is not only political, but is staged, rhetorically crafted, and persuasively performative. Drawing on insights from scholars who theorize what Candace Spigelman has called “the rhetorical personal,” this article aims to articulate the potential of early twentieth-century autobiographical narratives such as Morris’s to serve collective ends—not merely to solidify the identity claims of their writers, but to participate in a collective reimagining of the spaces of professional labor and of the gendered bodies that inhabited those spaces. -p.531, Risa Applegarth
