Poroi: Project on Rhetoric of Inquiry

From the University of Iowa's Project on Rhetoric of Inquiry (POROI) comes its namesake, the open-access academic journal Poroi. Launched in 2001 and published semiannually, this peer-reviewed electronic journal publishes interdisciplinary scholarly articles that "emphasize the rhetoric of knowledge production in and across academic disciplines; how knowledge flows between technical, public, and personal spheres of discourse; and how communication media affect argumentation, its dissemination, and reception." Researchers and readers from a variety of scholarly backgrounds, particularly those with an interest in communication-related issues, may be intrigued by the types of work published in Poroi. For example, past article topics have included how CRISPR and the trope of the Book of Nature enable conceptualizing DNA as a text rather than a code (found in Volume 14.2) and how applying a cultural rhetorics approach to the issue of human trafficking could lead toward improved public understanding of and engagement in anti-trafficking efforts (found in Volume 12.2). Currently in its fourteenth volume, Poroi is published semiannually. All articles can be downloaded as PDFs, and those interested may subscribe to receive updates from this journal via email or RSS.
