Welcome to Rhetorically Speaking, the podcast that explores how and why rhetoric matters. In our pilot episode, we use rhetoric to help us explore current controversies around language and diversity in the twenty-first century. In our first segment, In The World, we visit Cornell University’s undergraduate foreign language requirement and discuss its potentials and pushback. In our second segment, On the Page, we sit down with Dr. Laura Gonzales to discuss her recent book, Sites of Translation, and how studying multilingual practices and translation moments has big payoffs in the classroom on in our communities. Stay tuned.
