Greetings! Iím a doctoral student in northern Ohio, studying in the field of rhetoric and composition. Is anyone out there a student, scholar, or teacher? Iím starting to research the presence (absence, really) about discussion of polyamory and other nonnormative sexualities within the field of rhetoric and composition. Is anyone out there from my field? If so, I would love to pick your brainÖI need some sources. I am wondering if thereís been others out there to tackle introducing this identity into our field. Iím feeling rather alone and freaked out, as I start this research. Letís talk/chat?! Write me please.
Also, if you out there are an academic, can we talk: are you out at your institution? How did that occur? Are you closeted? Why?
I am still, technically, in the closet. But I'm thinking about using my dissertation as a way to subtly come out. But...to be frank....I'm scared.
