Calls for Review Editors

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!

Cristen Fitzpatrick

Re: Editor Stepping Down

Dear All, 

Allow me to again thank Clare for her service on behalf of this intellectual community, and to let subscribers know that we do have two new volunteer editors who are in training and will be taking over the editorial work in the coming weeks. You may see a little pause in activity while that happens, but rest assured, we'll be back up and running in no time. 

Kind Regards,
