Abstract: On March 13, 2019, the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition sponsored their annual Action Hour at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in Pittsburgh. This year's event had a dual focus. First, we gathered to interrogate and explore the critical vocabularies and representational frameworks that feminist scholars in rhetoric and composition had developed to to identify the fraught or hybrid spaces that they occupy, including but not limited to various intersections of sexism and racism. We did so both in response to Kimberlé Crenshaw's landmark texts, and in response to residual challenges of taking up Crenshaw's work authentically and well in all corners of our field. Second, we gathered to commemorate and celebrate the many labors and constant dedication of two esteemed colleagues and of thirteen past presidents. Individually and collectively, through their teaching and service and mentoring and scholarship, these women have left exceptional legacies, and we were glad to dwell together for an evening—in shared space, though on stolen land—to look back on those legacies, and to begin looking forward.Tags: 22-1, 30th anniversary, action hour, CCCC 2019, Coalition history, Intersectionality, microtalks, remediation
