Description:

This summer, Cruz Medina reached out to This Rhetorical Life to share an interview he had done with Ana Castillo.

Episode 32: Queer Public Cultures & the Rhetoricity of Sex Museums

Oct 11, 2016 38:52

Description:

  “Homonormativity has had two kind of strains of theoretical emphasis, one of which has been the focus on neoliberal prerogatives and priorities into institutions and everyday life, and gay and lesbian formations in particular, and I say gay and lesbian for a reason. And the development of a prescriptive set of social codes that [...]

Episode 31: An Interview with Ira Shor—Part Two

May 25, 2016 1:08:03

Description:

In any event, first [thing] we have to make contact with is the situation that we are entering and what kind of context we are teaching in, and for. And we have to then educate ourselves into the context. In addition, the other thing is, the political conditions not only change from place to place; [...]

Episode 29: Reflections on Rhetoric and Citizenship

Oct 27, 2015 29:40

Description:

I just don’t understand why we have to talk about every mode of belonging as some kind of citizenship. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. I’m interested in people’s practices of resistance. I’m interested in people’s practices of belonging. […] I’m interested in people’s practices of world-making.  — Karma Chavez I’m increasingly persuaded [...]

Episode 28: Transcription // Translation

Apr 24, 2015 30:45

Description:

We tend to assume that captioning is objective. It’s just copying down. We tend to privilege speech sounds, and there’s just something about speech that sort of makes it seem easier to transcribe. It’s straightforward and objective, but it’s so much more complex than that—especially when you add in non-speech sounds, especially when you consider that everybody has a [...]

Episode 27: Addressing Racism in the Classroom

Feb 21, 2015 13:51

Description:

I started the research really struggling to understand how seemingly good people could say such awful things, and that’s really what I wanted to understand. I think what I found is that people are not all one thing or another. They aren’t as awful as they seem in a particular moment. Our students are struggling [...]

Episode 26: Conversations about Academic Labor, Academic Freedom, and Palestine

Dec 19, 2014 53:46

Description:

There’s a certain set of conceits around academic freedom that limit its functionality and its practice, and those conceits often have to do with critiques of state power, critiques of colonization, critiques of structural violence. –Steven Salaita I think using academic freedom as a way to open these more political conversations and more potentially more [...]

Episode 25: The Pod(cast) People Speak

Nov 15, 2014 39:06

Description:

Scholarship is designed to reach some sort of conclusion, even provisional, whereas the podcast because I think it’s still anchored in a kind of entertainment model [stardust clicking] is actually sort of less interested in conclusions and probably also—even if it was interested—that that’s sort of antithetical to the form that it’s working through. You [...]

Episode 24: On Ferguson

Oct 25, 2014 50:34

Description:

Can’t we find more creative ways to report these stories? The story of Michael Brown is so important, but we get trapped, I think, in this narrow narrative that we’ve been telling for a really long time. —Tessa Brown Social media and mobile technology has particularly been important for people of color, for working class [...]
