"Sexual Rhetorics moves beyond an engagement with the gendered and sexual subject. The sexed rhetorics animated in this collection will move readers to confront and consider the pervasiveness of sex/uality in structuring social life and discourses in public/s sphere/s. In bringing together a range of sexed methods - from archival research to textual and rhetorical analyses to ethnographic-style inquiry and case studies - Alexander and Rhodes effectively argue that to fully understand rhetorical action in contemporary (counter)publics, we must also know and understand the primacy of sexual rhetorics." -- Adela C. Licona, University of Arizona, USA
