The Old College Try

I'm an English studies dork, so forgive me this post. Or dont forgive me it, actually. Get on board.

I cant give you a link to a copy of this article because it would violate copyright laws, but if you have access to UT's libraries you can find it.

"The Grammar and Rhetoric of Inclusion" by Alice Roy.

Abstract: Provides discussion and critical analysis of the critical terms "inclusivity" and "inclusion" as they are being used more and more often by colleges and administrative task forces. Analyzes the choice between inclusion and inclusivity by drawing upon the rhetorical theories of Kenneth Burke.

Language is wonderful, beautiful and powerful. It can also be damaging. Or ignorant.
