Scottish Rhetoric and Its Influences by Lynee Lewis Gaillet

Book Description

An outgrowth of the recent meeting of the International Society of the History of Rhetoric, this collection challenges the reader to reexamine the broad influence of 18th- and 19th-century Scottish rhetoric, often credited for shaping present-day studies in psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, oral communication, English literature, and composition. The contributors examine its influence and call for a new appraisal of its importance in light of recent scholarship and archival research. Many of the essays in the first section discuss the contributions of recognized influential figures including Adam Smith and Hugh Blair. Other essays focus on the importance of 18th-century Scottish sermons in relation to public discourse, audience analysis, peer evaluation, and professional rhetoric. Essays in the second section address 19th-century rhetorical theory and its influence on North American composition practice.

Contingent Faculty Publishing in Community by Lynee Lewis Gaillet Contingent Faculty Publishing in Community, Hardback (December 2014)

Contributors argue that the key to innovative teaching and scholarship lies in institutional support for the contingent labor force, and they encourage contingent faculty to organize self-mentoring groups, create venues for learning/disseminating their experiences and findings, and connect scholarship to service and teaching in novel ways.

Scholarly Publication in a Changing Academic Landscape by Lynee Lewis Gaillet Scholarly Publication in a Changing Academic Landscape, Hardback (June 2014)

More publication by contingent faculty, Guglielmo and Gaillet contend, enriches and deepens both the scholarly conversation and individual faculty's work as teacher-scholars. They provide a guide for scholars off the tenure track, addressing the publication process step by step and showing its compatibility with teaching-focused scholarship.
