This is a portal I'm starting for my graduate course to develop. Hopefully, this will blossom into a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the history of rhetoric and rhetorical theory. --Matt 21:08, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Any Ideas?[edit]

Does anyone have any ideas about the best way to expand this portal? What could we offer here that would be the most valuable to students and teachers of rhetoric? --Matt 03:23, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

I think a few possible extensions would be feminist rhetoric and contemporary rhetorical theorists as categories (the latter could go under Rhetoricians). The feminism page is already rather extensive, and many of the figures on there (for example, Cixous) could be considered rhetoricians. A list of contemporary rhetorical theorists would provide a link to the past and also to rhetoric and composition (if they were also composition scholars). --gkerkvliet 2:12, 15 February 2006

WikiProject:Rhetoric?[edit]

I was evaluating the digital literacy page and didn't see much, if any, reference to the field of rhetoric and composition. Additionally, on its talk page, the information is noted as an important element of WikiProjects for Education, Computing, and Linguistics in an effort to collaboratively improve the information for those subjects. With this in mind, and because digital literacy is an important aspect of rhetoric and composition I looked to see if there was a WikiProject: Rhetoric and I did not come across anything of note. Might this be a beneficial project for the field of Rhetoric on Wikipedia? --Ann February 8, 2012 —Preceding undated comment added 20:58, 8 February 2012 (UTC).
