VPA’s Morris Launches Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking
Charles E. Morris III, professor of communication and rhetorical studies in the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ (VPA) Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies, has launched “QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking” (Michigan State University Press). “QED” is edited by Morris and Thomas K. Nakayama of Northeastern University.
Published three times a year, “QED” brings together scholars, activists, public intellectuals, artists and policy and culture makers to discuss, debate and mobilize issues and initiatives that matter to the diverse lived experience, struggle and transformation of GLBTQ peoples and communities wherever they may be.
With an emphasis on worldmaking praxis, “QED” welcomes theory, criticism, history, policy analysis, public argument and creative exhibition, seeking to foster intellectual and activist work through essays, commentaries, interviews, roundtable discussions and book and event reviews.
Morris’ research interests include rhetorical criticism, GLBTQ rhetorics, public memory and social protest. With Jason Edward Black he edited “An Archive of Hope: Harvey Milk’s Speeches and Writings” (University of California Press, 2013).
