Peitho Journal

Peitho is the peer-reviewed journal of the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition.

Published quarterly, Peitho seeks to encourage, advance, and publish original research in the history of rhetoric and composition.

We invite article-length submissions on a wide range of topics related to feminist theories and gendered practices.

We also invite shorter submissions for “Recoveries and Reconsiderations,” an annual forum for sharing innovative perspectives on existing feminist work, as well an incubator for new feminist research projects.
