Debra Hawhee is a professor of English at Penn State University. She is the author of Bodily Arts: Rhetoric and Athletics in Ancient Greece and coauthor of Ancient Rhetorics for Contemporary Students.
"Hawhee is one of the most significant scholars of rhetoric today, and Burke is one of the most significant in history. Body studies is not new; yet, it remains one of the most compelling transdisciplinary approaches to examining nature, culture, communication, belief, vulnerability, and pleasure. The type of body biography Hawhee performs in Moving Bodies signals a worthwhile trend—one that continues to teach us what we miss when we rigidly compartmentalize bodies and minds, theory and practice, affect and politics, individual health and collective attitudes, people and ecology, and the sciences and the humanities. This book will move you."—Phaedra C. Pezzullo, Indiana University, and author of Toxic Tourism: Rhetorics of Travel, Pollution, and Environmental Justice
"Praise to this significant critical addition to the literature on Burke and to its depth of understanding of the divergent philosophical foundations of rhetoric. Highly recommended."—Choice
Winner of the Diamond Anniversary Award of the National Communication Association
