Drag Queen Discourse: Social Circulation, Restorative Literacies, and Rhetorical Space
by Bronson, Megan Leona, M.A., California State University, Fresno, 2020, 66; 27955803
Abstract (Summary)

This project explores three different forms of discourse in American drag queen culture. It seeks to understand different ways that drag queen culture heals itself, is misrepresented in modern media, and how drag discourse is an opportunity to engage in public learning. By employing rhetorical methods of social circulation, restorative healing, and rhetorical space, it becomes clear that drag queen culture has much to offer the field of composition and rhetoric in that it is a largely unexplored discourse in Queer and cultural rhetorics.
