New Book Review Editor and a Call for Reviewers

Hello, everyone!

If I may introduce myself: I am the new Book Review Editor on H-Rhetor, and I am excited to work with you. I am currently a PhD fellow in the Institute for Writing Studies at St. John's University, focusing on feminist rhetoric and digital feminism.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to solicit book reviewers for H-Rhetor. If anyone is interested in this, please contact me, and we can discuss the opportunity.

Thank you!
