Our Mission

The Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition fosters inquiry in feminist histories, theories, and pedagogies of rhetoric and composition. As a network of diverse teachers and scholars, the Coalition promotes intersectionality, collaboration, and communication in the following areas:

  1. the advancement of feminist research and pedagogy across histories, locales, identities, materialities, and media;
  2. the education and mentoring of feminist faculty and graduate students in scholarship, research methods, praxis, and the politics of the profession.

The Coalition cultivates a dynamic, intellectually challenging, and professionally nurturing community. We welcome and sustain all who do feminist work, inclusive of all genders, sexualities, races, classes, nationalities, religions, abilities, and other identities, in their research and/or classrooms.
