Although it is well known in other fields, the concept of
"resilience" has not been addressed explicitly by feminist
rhetoricians. This collection develops it in readings of rhetorical
situations across a range of social contexts and national cultures.
Contributors demonstrate that resilience offers an important new
conceptual frame for feminist rhetoric, with emphasis on agency,
change, and hope in the daily lives of individuals or groups of
individuals disempowered by social or material forces.
Collectively, these chapters create a robust conception of
resilience as a complex rhetorical process, redeeming it from its
popular association with individual heroism through an important
focus on relationality, community, and an ethics of connection.
Resilience, in this volume, is a specifically rhetorical response
to complicated forces in individual lives. Through it, Feminist
Rhetorical Resilience widens the interpretive space within which
rhetoricians can work.
