Archives in Rhetoric
A Resource Compiled by David Beard (, UM-Duluth)

Why do Archival Research in Rhetoric?
Archives play an important role in scholarship in rhetoric. Rhetorical critics analyze historical texts; archives play an essential role in contextualizing the texts we critique. Historians of rhetoric seek contextualization of the texts that form the canon of our intellectual history; that work begins in the archive.
