"Global and Non-Western Rhetorics: Sources for Comparative Rhetorical Studies."

October 2021

Tarez Samra Graban, PhD, Honors Teaching Scholar, recently published a 65,000 word annotated bibliography "Global and Non-Western Rhetorics: Sources for Comparative Rhetorical Studies," in Volume 9 of the online journal, Present Tense: A Journal of Rhetoric and Society. Co-edited with two collaborators, Dr. Anne Melfi and Dr. Nicole Khoury, this peer-reviewed annotated bibliography is the first of its kind, reflecting the joint efforts of 25 scholars of various cultural and comparative rhetorical traditions, and taking two years to complete. When they were not writing the critical introduction or providing annotations of their own, Graban, Melfi, and Khoury commissioned, reviewed, and edited the over 200 entries in the bibliography. Ultimately, they arranged the work according to what they call "rhetorical regions," to represent Introductory Overviews, Methodologies, and Pedagogies related to comparative rhetoric; to overview original scholarship about particular rhetorical traditions from Africa, the pre-Columbian Americas, Ancient Egypt, and South Asia; and to offer historical insights into Arabic, Celtic, Chinese, Japanese, Jewish, Korean, and Near Eastern communicative practices. While they do not consider the 14 categories and 207 entries that constitute this annotated bibliography to be absolutely comprehensive of all work in the field of global rhetorical studies, they hope readers will recognize the following goals in their selections: to increase rhetorical knowledge globally; to create new kinds of collaborations; and to promote the circulation of key sources of knowledge about rhetorical practices that occur in other cultures. The journal and its contents are open-access; interested readers may find the bibliography at https://www.presenttensejournal.org/category/bibliographies/.
