Joint Publication with Enculturation—Queered

Jacqueline Rhodes, CSU San Bernardino; and Jonathan Alexander, University of California, Irvine

We offer the video Queered in Technoculture along with a companion scholarly text, "Queer Rhetoric and the Pleasures of the Archive" at Enculturation ( The video distills our interrogation of logos, ethos, and pathos; the scholarly piece builds and expands that critique. We believe that this partnership—between authors, between genres, between journals—queers knowledge production, challenging those borders sanctioned and policed by the academy, and we hope that more of such collaboration happens in the future.
