Current and Emerging Methods in the Rhetorical Analysis of Texts

Closing: Toward an Integrated Approach

Geisler, C. (2016)
Journal of Writing Research, 7(3), 511-526

In this special section on Current and Emerging Methods in the Rhetorical Analysis of Texts, we have reported on the results of a project we undertook in order to better understand the costs and benefits of adopting particular approaches to the rhetorical analysis of texts. In the synthesis that follows, we begin with a brief review of the results of our researchers’ analyses, then turn to examine their commonalities and variations. Finally, we conclude with the considerations that should be taken into account in choosing a method, as well as a discussion of the potential for integration. Overall, this synthesis will suggest that there is much to be gained by employing multiple methods for the rhetorical analysis of texts and outlines some of the design standards that can be used to support its development.
