Reclaiming the Rural: Essays on Literacy, Rhetoric, and Pedagogy by Associate Professor Kim Donehower . Only 4 left in stock (more on the way). With its examination of the literacy practices of ordinary women and men in rural places, this book dispels the mischaracterization of rural literacy as lagging behind that of urban centers. Rural Literacies demonstrates that all educators concerned with environmental sustainability and economic justice have much to learn from the struggles and strategies of rural and small-town dwellers in the contemporary United States.

In Reclaiming the Rural, Donehower, Hogg, and Schell compile 13 studies that seek to disrupt metaphors of urban dominance and centrality as exemplified by Friedman. They arrange the studies into three sections. In the first section, authors investigate the social construction of space. For example, Cori Brewster describes how the state, agribusiness, and NGOs discursively align to produce a corporate image of farmland and farming for the general public and school children. The second section delves more deeply into issues of diversity within those spaces.

In the North American system, used in the United States and many other countries, it is a position between assistant professor and a full professorship. In this system an associate professorship is typically the first promotion obtained after gaining a faculty position, and in the United States it is usually connected to tenure.

No real equivalent of the assistant professor exists, to the best of my knowledge. I have seen it being compared to quite a few different titles in the Swedish system, but it makes for somewhat of a strenuous translation no matter which of them you go for. So: the closest US-style equivalent titles for people that can supervise a PhD student in Sweden are '(full) professor' and 'associate professor', respectively. k views · View 4 Upvoters.

In Reclaiming the Rural: Essays on Literacy, Rhetoric,and Pedagogy, editors Kim Donehower, Charlotte Hogg,

and Eileen E. Schell bring together a diverse collection of essays that consider literacy, rhetoric, and pedagogy in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The essays move beyond the typical arguments for preserving, abandoning, or modernizing by analyzing how rural communities sustain themselves through literate action. The contributors explore the rhetorics of water disputes in the western United States, the histories and influences of religious rhetorics

in Mexico, agricultural and rural literacy curricula, the literacies of organizations such as 4-H and Academia de la Nueva Raza, and neoliberal rhetorics.

 

Central to these examinations are the rural populations themselves, which include indigenous peoples in the rural United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as those of European or other backgrounds. The strength of the anthology lies in its multiple perspectives, various research sites, and the range of methodologies employed, including rhetorical analyses of economies and environments, media, and public spaces; classroom-based research; historical analysis and archival work; and qualitative research. The researchers engage the duality between the practices of everyday life in rural communities and the practices of reflecting on and making meaning.

 

Reclaiming the Rural reflects the continually changing, nuanced, context-dependent realities of rural life while acknowledging the complex histories, power struggles, and governmental actions that have affected and continue to affect the lives of rural citizens. This thought-provoking collection demonstrates the value in reclaiming the rural for scholarly and pedagogical analysis.
