    • By the Will of the King: Majestic and Political Rhetoric in Ricardian Poetry 

      Driscoll, William (University of Oregon, 2017-09-27)
      The stories we tell give meaning and coherence to our political situation; they reproduce, interrogate, and, at times, challenge the discourse of authority. Thus, when the political situation changes so do our narratives. ...
    • Rhetoric of Resistance: Social Justice in the Work of Wollstonecraft, Cugoano, and Godwin 

      Crane, Jessica (University of Oregon, 2017-09-27)
