Working with Byron Hawk and Jim Brown, I co-edit enculturation: a journal of rhetoric, writing, and culture. I share in overseeing the submission and review process as well as helping to coordinate the production of the journal’s content.
Enculturation is a refereed journal devoted to contemporary theories of rhetoric, writing, and culture. We accept academic work in all media forms suitable for web-based publication, including conventional articles, hypertexts, videos, and multimedia projects.
Enculturation as a concept is the process of teaching an individual the norms and values of a culture through unconscious repetition. The totality of actions within a culture establishes a context that sets the conditions for what is possible within the society. Learning in this context becomes a life-long process developed through rhetoric in the form of speech, texts, images, and gestures that reaffirm the technological, economic, political, social, ideological, and philosophical bases of the culture.
