Featured Praxis: “Precarious Spaces, Institutional Places” by T. Passwater

Today’s featured praxis article is “Precarious Spaces, Institutional Places” by T. Passwater, published in the 41st issue of Composition Forum, an open-access rhetoric and composition journal.

From the article:

“When policies harm our students, we need to be showing up in those meetings, when they are inevitably enacted we need to find work-arounds or exploitations. When students are already mobilizing to support causes or their own survival, vulnerability demands we show up—perhaps even turn that work into part of the course: are they generating materials for their survival. Can protests, hearings, and community building not generate the kind of rhetorical awareness that we often seek to develop?”
