讲座摘要：Rhetoric, in Aristotle's words, is “the ability,in each case, to see all of the available means of persuasion.” As such, rhetoric allows us to thoroughly investigate issues; artfully and rationally challenge unjust systems; (re)invent ourselves as educated, engaged citizens; cultivate and participate in a way of life that we believe in; and, above all, bank on hope (and possibility). Outstanding evidence for such purpose lies within women's rhetorical practices across a wide scope of human history. Our speaker, Professor Cheryl Glenn, Distinguished Professor of English and Women's Studies at Penn State University, will guide us along a journey of nearly 200 years of feminist rhetoric evolution in the United States, analyzing evidence and clarifying how these efforts have given rise to an innovative approach of feminist rhetoric in today’s world, as well as new hope and possibilities for a future we all share.
（我们的演讲嘉宾，宾夕法尼亚州立大学英语与女性研究教授 Cheryl Glenn 将带领大家走近美国现当代女性作家，欣赏他们言说中修辞的力量并介绍修辞学研究的一种新路径。）
