SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE WORK OF ALAN G. GROSS

POROI Volume 10, Number 2 proudly presents a special, guest-edited issue devoted to the work of Alan G. Gross on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of The Rhetoric of Science, his seminal work in this field.

 

The issue opens with an Introduction by guest editors David Beard and Sara Newman.  It is followed by an ARST interview with Alan Gross conducted by the Association for Rhetoric of Science and Technology (ARST) and by a never before published paper by Thomas Kuhn about the very idea of rhetoric of inquiry.  Kuhn’s paper is introduced and contextualized by Edward Schiappa.

 

Also included are thirteen papers by a variety of authors on four aspects of Gross’s work:  Rhetoric of Science and Its Epistemology, Visual Rhetoric, the Rhetoric of Museum Displays, and the History of Rhetorical Theory.  Contributors, some of whom give recollections of their collaboration with Alan Gross, include: William Keith, William White, Randy Harris, Nathan Crick, Nathan Johnson, Joseph Harmon, Jeanne Fahnestock, Heather Graves, Gregory Schneider-Bateman, Mariko Izumi, Arthur Walzer, Bill Morris, and Chris McCracken.

 

The issue ends with a complete bibliography of the works of Alan G. Gross.

This year’s theme—“Skepticism, Doubt and Change in Science, Technology and Medicine”—is meant to open space for conversations and inquiries exploring sources of doubt, skepticism, and fast-paced change from new and emerging developments in science, medicine and technology today and historically. Papers and presentations reflecting diverse methods spanning conventional and critical-cultural rhetorical analysis, ethnography, interviewing, discourse analysis, new historicism and hybrid methods are welcome.
