December 21, 2012

Jane Donawerth's most recent book, Conversational Rhetoric: The Rise and Fall of a Women's Tradition, 1600 to 1900, published last year by Southern Illinois University Press, will be issued in paperback this spring. She has recently been invited to join the Editorial Board of The Norton Anthology of Rhetoric and Writing, edited by Andrea Lunsford and Susan Jarratt. With her (and Ralph Bauer's) former PhD student, Rebecca Lush, and with Albert Rabil of the University of North Carolina as P.I., she has participated in a winning NEH grant for several volumes of "The Other Voice" Series; she and Rebecca are coediting selections by the seventeenth-century Quaker Margaret Fell. Her article on "Bianca: the Other African in Shakespeare's Othello," is forthcoming in April from Routledge in a festscrift for Judy Hallett. Her article on cytology and Katherine MacLean's science fiction is in press at Wesleyan University Press. Her article on "Negotiating Conflicting Views of Women and Elocution" will appear next year in a collection of essays from Routledge on Rhetoric, History, and Women's Oratorical Education.
