Die Rhetorik ist ohne die Stadt nicht zu denken. Die Stadt als der Ort verdichteten Austauschs - nicht nur von Waren und Dienstleistungen, sondern vor allem auch von Meinungen, Ansichten und Weltauffassungen, kurz: als ein Ort der Doxa - ist der prototypische Ort der Rhetorik. Anhand von Problemen der Orientierung und des Place-Making zeigt Pierre Smolarski die Stadt als Ort nicht nur der Verdichtung und des Wettstreits divergenter Meinungen, sondern auch als Gegenstand mannigfaltiger rhetorischer Bemühungen - sie ist nicht nur ein Raum für Rhetorik, sondern auch für sich ein rhetorischer Raum.

The Public Work of Rhetoric presents the art of rhetorical techné as a contemporary praxis for civic engagement and social change, which is necessarily inclusive of people inside and outside the academy. In this provocative call to action, editors John M. Ackerman and David J. Coogan, along with seventeen other accomplished contributors, offer case studies and criticism on the rhetorical practices of citizen-scholars pursuing democratic ideals in diverse civic communities—with partnerships across a range of media, institutions, exigencies, and discourses. Challenging conventional research methodologies and the traditional insularity of higher education, these essays argue that civic engagement as a rhetorical act requires critical attention to our notoriously veiled identity in public life, to our uneasy affiliation with democracy as a public virtue, and to the transcendent powers of discourse and ideology. This can be accomplished, the contributors argue, by building on the compatible traditions of materialist rhetoric and community literacy, two vestiges of rhetoric's dual citizenship in the fields of communication and English. This approach expresses a collective desire in rhetoric for more politically responsive scholarship, more visible impact in public life, and more access to the critical spaces between universities and their communities.

In the spring of 1968, the English faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) voted to remedialize the first semester of its required freshman composition course, English 101. The following year, it eliminated outright the second semester course, English 102. For the next quarter-century, UW had no real campus-wide writing requirement, putting it out of step with its peer institutions and preventing it from fully joining the “composition revolution” of the 1970s. In From Form to Meaning, David Fleming chronicles these events, situating them against the backdrop of late 1960s student radicalism and within the wider changes taking place in U.S. higher education at the time. Fleming begins with the founding of UW in 1848. He examines the rhetorical education provided in the university’s first half-century, the birth of a required, two semester composition course in 1898, faculty experimentation with that course in the 1920s and 1930s, and the rise of a massive “current-traditional” writing program, staffed primarily by graduate teaching assistants (TAs), after World War II. He then reveals how, starting around 1965, tensions between faculty and TAs concerning English 101-102 began to mount. By 1969, as the TAs were trying to take over the committee that supervised the course, the English faculty simply abandoned its long-standing commitment to freshman writing. In telling the story of composition’s demise at UW, Fleming shows how contributing factors—the growing reliance on TAs; the questioning of traditional curricula by young instructors and their students; the disinterest of faculty in teaching and administering general education courses—were part of a larger shift affecting universities nationally. He also connects the events of this period to the long, embattled history of freshman composition in the United States. And he offers his own thoughts on the qualities of the course that have allowed it to survive and regenerate for over 125 years.

Der große EXILROMAN des salvadorianischen Schriftstellers Castellanos Moya ist der bedeutendste und engagierteste Schriftsteller El Salvadors. Zweimal aus dem Heimatland vertrieben, ist ›Der Traum von Rückkehr‹ ein persönlicher. Mit trockenem Humor und einer gehörigen Portion Selbstironie enthüllt sein Protagonist Erasmo Aragón eine ebenso spannende wie verworrene Geschichte. Der Bürgerkrieg hat wüste Spuren in ihm hinterlassen, die der betagte Arzt Don Chente mit einer Hypnosebehandlung offenlegen will. Doch Aragón beginnt, dem Arzt und bald auch der eigenen Erinnerung zu misstrauen. Das politische wird zum existentiellen Exil.
