Professor Joe Izaguirre to join Department of Rhetoric and Writing beginning Fall 2020

We’re thrilled to announce that Professor José (“Joe”) Izaguirre will join our faculty in Fall 2020! Joe is currently an ABD in Communication Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who is set to defend his dissertation, “Becoming La Raza: Chican@ Counterpublicity and Rhetorics of the Viet Nam War,” this summer.

 

Joe studies the theoretical and historical relationships among rhetoric, race, (de)coloniality, and political power in the United States and abroad. Focusing on public Latinx/Chicanx rhetorics and social movements, his work both negotiates the intersections of race, violence, and political power, and interrogates pre-modern and non-Western rhetorical traditions and their contributions to histories of rhetorical theory. He has essays forthcoming in the Journal for the History of Rhetoric (formerly Advances in the History of Rhetoric) and Rhetoric Society Quarterly
