This volume features the work of 15 scholars, who invite us to consider the theory of historiography: to re-ask difficult questions about the purposes and methodologies of writing histories of rhetorics, broadly defined, and to provoke us to question what it means, what it should mean, what it could mean to write histories of rhetoric, composition, communication.

This book renews in a powerful way the theoretical exploration of history writing in rhetorical studies. . . . The interdisciplinary reach of this volume spans rhetoric, composition, and communication, along with feminist studies, queer studies, and comparative cultural studies, along with interdisciplinary practices within these interdisciplinary and disciplinary units, from archeological practices to critical, hermeneutical, and philological practices, all theorized within rhetorical historiography. Anyone interested in the history, theory, and criticism of public discourse will find a great resource in the offerings of this volume. "Rhetoric & Public Affairs"
"Theorizing Histories of Rhetoric" opens wholly original questions, such as what is the appropriate scale of a rhetorical history, and what does it mean to think of rhetorical history with the future in mind? Through its embrace of rhetorical history s disorder, Ballif s collection at once provides models for how to represent suppressed and marginalized archives as well as occasions for reevaluating the cultural meaning of writing histories of all kinds. ""Composition Studies""
