Perspectives on Cultural and Posthumanist Rhetorics

This collaboration grew out of a roundtable presentation put together by Donnie Johnson Sackey for RSA 2018. In it, I, Sackey, Casey Boyle, Mai Nu Xiong, Kristin L. Arola, and Scot Barnett use productive tension as a methodology to confront issues stemming from “citation practices, ethics, intellectual traditions, and whose voices and stories are heard and by whom” that arise at the intersection of CR and PR work. My contribution, “Andean Relational Ontologies,” talked about the importance of Andean culture and philosophy for understanding how biocultural diversity manifests and evolves in the Andes.
