The RSA Series in Transdisciplinary Rhetoric
The RSA Series in Transdisciplinary Rhetoric is published by the Pennsylvania State University Press in collaboration with the Rhetoric Society of America. Books published in this series consider rhetoric as both a practice and as a theoretical lens through which to engage other fields; and they investigate how rhetoric itself is complicated as a result of this transdisciplinary exchange.
