Design + rhetoric against coloniality

Raul Sanchez, Maria Rogal, Dori Griffin, Laura Gonzales, Victor Del Hierro

University of Florida, United States of America

For decades, scholars in design and in rhetoric have found useful connections in each other’s fields, particularly regarding issues of multimodal communication. But these connections have been either tentative or rudimentary. Design scholars have tended to rely on Aristotelian and other Western theories of rhetoric, rather than on more recent expressions of comparative, cultural, and decolonial rhetorics. Rhetoric scholars have tended to focus on visual design, or they have invoked “design” in general reference to extra-verbal signification. In this conversation, we hope to start the process of bringing together each field’s most forward-looking expressions to address pressing and ongoing questions of culture and coloniality—questions that each field has addressed separately, but that they might more effectively tackle together.
