The advisee asks: "But I'm interested in rhetoric and discourse communities...and teaching...you know...Rhet/Comp things."
The advisor turns to the single, lonely window in her office and yanks up the shade. A burst of sunlight overwhelms the advisee, who quickly turns to shade her eyes.
The advisor asks: "Has this beam of light not become an actor in our exchange? A key participant in my argument to you about this book?"
The advisee attempts to look at her advisor who has moved in front of her window, casting her shadow over the student.
The advisor: "What about the assemblage of my frame and the sunlight? Have we not assembled into a new avenue for discourse?"
Able to see again, the student turns to the book. She notes the odd bolding of BRUNO LATOUR (seriously, WTF?). She whimpers: "But...but...writing...and speech acts?"
The advisor folds her arms and asks: "Was your speech not halted by the sunlight and enabled by my frame?"
The advisee pauses and then opens her mouth.
"Enough! Read before I get angry as Latour's stand-ins often do in his work. Seriously, talk about yourself much?" says the Advisor.
But in all seriousness: Excellent book for Rhet/Comp students and scholars who are interested in Bruno Latour and/or Actor-Network Theory. A variety of chapters articulating potential ANT-to-Rhet/Comp research methods, pedagogies, conceptions of writing, and even issues particular to teachers working in academic institutions. There is plenty here for both individuals who are curious about ANT and seasoned ANT readers.
