Present Tense just published its inaugural issue

A few months ago, I blogged a CFP for Present Tense: A Journal of Rhetoric in Society. Now the inaugural issue is out. Take a look: the issue has a wide set of topics.

Info below:
Present Tense: A Journal of Rhetoric in Society is proud to announce its inaugural issue: The articles in volume 1, issue 1 include a divesity of current topics, ranging from John Schilb’s essay on disciplinarity and power, to Jill Parrott’s discussion of search engines and the rhetorical canons, to Vershawn Ashanti Young’s analysis of race and the new equality. We hope you find the articles as engaging as we do and we encourage you to continue to the conversation by commenting online.

Volume 1, Issue 1 includes:

Turning Composition toward Sovereignty

- John Schilb

Momma’s Memories and the New Equality

- Vershawn Ashanti Young

I’ll Google It!: How Collective Wisdom in Search Engines Alters the Rhetorical


- Jill M. Parrott

Making Rhetoric Visible: Re-visioning a Capstone Civic Writing Seminar

Cooking Codes: Cookbook Discourses as Women’s Rhetorical Practices

- Elizabeth Fleitz

Program Review: The Land-Grant Way – Connected Knowing and the Call of Service

Present Tense is a peer-reviewed, blind-refereed, online journal dedicated to exploring contemporary social, cultural, political and economic issues through a rhetorical lens. In addition to examining these subjects as found in written, oral and visual texts, we wish to provide a forum for calls to action in academia, education and national policy. Seeking to address current or presently unfolding issues, we publish short articles of no more than 2,000 words, the length of a conference paper.
