History of Rhetorical Activism

In preparation for celebrating our 30th anniversary at the Wednesday night SIG at CCCC this past spring 2019 in Pittsburgh, PA, I asked our thirteen past presidents to reflect on their tenures with the Coalition—their proudest achievements, hurdles they faced, their own relationship to the organization, and how it helped them as a scholar, or as a feminist. The history that emerged from these reflections is one of joyous collaboration, of deep friendships, of a commitment to helping each other, and of very, very hard work.

History in Film

There are three films currently held in the Coalition archives. Taken together, they help narrate the Coalition’s history through interviews with past-presidents and members, highlights from the 25th anniversary gala at the 2014 Conference on College Composition and Communication, and highlights from the 2015 Feminisms and Rhetorics Conference.
