An original study on the use and misuse of global institutional rhetoric and the effects of these practices on women, particularly in developing countries. Using a feminist lens, Rebecca Dingo views the complex networks that rhetoric flows through, globally and nationally, and how it's often reconfigured to work both for and against women and to maintain existing power structures.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Forcefully arguing that rhetorical networks have material effects on women's lives, Dingo's Networking Arguments intervenes in timely critical debates and develops new methods for transnational feminist rhetorical scholarship. Dingo's persistent critique of the liberal (and neoliberal) individual subject allows her to theorize the ways that social being and structures of power condition rhetorical expression. This critique opens the door for profound challenges to the notions of an autonomous rhetorical subject and a stable (spatially and temporally) rhetorical situation."
--Bret Benjamin, University at Albany, SUNY


"A highly readable, astute, and thorough intervention into rhetorical studies. Rebecca Dingo's transnational feminist rhetorical analysis is a must-read for scholars and students who take the relationship between language and power seriously. Her text intervenes in those operations by demonstrating the complexities of how gendered rhetorics circulate within neoliberal globalization."
--Rachel Riedner, George Washington University


"Represents the most recent interventions feminist rhetoricians can make in the discourses that shape women's imagined and lived conditions. Dingo's methodology holds the potential to expand the inquiries of feminist rhetoric by encouraging feminist rhetoricians to engage with rhetorics as they circulate transnationally, shaping women's lives in the process."
