Conducting Socially Responsible Research: Critical Theory, Neo-Pragmatism, and Rhetorical Inquiry
“A graduate course in composition studies would make good use of the book because of the author's very careful and thorough comparison of composition studies and speech communication…. The book does indeed make an important contribution to the field; if students speak or write, what should they speak or write about? Scholarship of Social Influence offers important suggestions for empowering students not just as speakers or writers, but as citizens as well.” -Bill Bolin, Texas State University When human knowledge becomes historicized and socialized, the distinctions between our public, academic, and instructional personae fade. In place of such traditional personae, a new identity is encouraged for scholars in the field of communication. Scholarship of Social Influence redescribes our understanding of theory, criticism, and pedagogy with ...

If I am only for myself, then what am I?
If not now, when?Talmudist wisdom“Ethics of the Fathers,” p. 482
There are times in life when the question of knowing if one can think differently than one thinks, and perceive differently than one sees, is absolutely necessary if one is to go on looking and reflecting at all. People will say, perhaps, that these games with oneself would properly form part of those preliminary exercises that are forgotten once they have served their purpose. But, then, what is philosophy today—philosophical activity, I mean—if it is not the critical work that thought bears to mind on itself? In what does it consist, if not in the endeavor to know how and to what extent it might be possible to think differently, instead of legitimating what is already known?The Use of Pleasure, p. 9[Page vi]
Foreword[Page xiii]Reconsidering What Scholarship is and Should Be
In recent years, criticism of scholarship as usual has become increasingly insistent, radical, and persuasive. Challenges to traditional scholarship have come from postmodern scholars of communication, critical studies, feminism, philosophy, cultural studies, and other fields. Disciplinary locations notwithstanding, critics of conventional scholarship disparage it for falsely claiming objectivity and distance between researchers and research participants and for assuming capital-T Truth exists and can be discovered and proven. Most especially, critics disparage traditional research's claim to be value free, apolitical and they insist, in contrast, that all knowledge and all scholarship is inherently, inevitably value laden.
Like many others, I have read the criticisms and found myself increasingly inclined to accept them. Yet, I have been frustrated by the absence of efforts to integrate the ideas and vocabularies of diverse fields. Thus, I welcome this book in which Omar Swartz thoughtfully reviews and integrates critical discussions of conventional scholarship and alternatives to it. Swartz offers a sustained and convincing challenge to established [Page xiv]assumptions and practices in rhetorical study and criticism. In exploring these issues, he provides a stunning integration of the ideas and implications of thinkers such as Foucault, Rorty, Jacoby, and Burke. The result is a devastating challenge to scholarship as usual and a compelling call for more socially aware and engaged scholarship.
Swam is especially convincing in his challenge to the conventional assumption that scholarship is and should be removed from the social world. Extending previous discussions of this issue by feminists (e.g., Harding, 1991) and other critical scholars, Swartz demonstrates that scholars and the work they do are necessarily situated in a social world that informs—even infuses—their ideas and interpretations.
Following Donna Haraway's (1988) argument that all knowledge is situated, Swartz recognizes that there are multiple ways of living and multiple paths to knowledge. Awareness of diverse locations from which knowledge arises erodes belief in transcendent truths. In its place, we recognize multiple perspectives that operate simultaneously in the social world. All truth, all knowledge, all scholarship become perspectival and emergent, rather than singular and fixed.
In calling for socially engaged and self-reflexive research Omar Swartz joins a strong and well established tradition in the discipline of communication. As early as 1973 Karlyn Campbell noted that women's voices have historically been silenced by cultural practices that deemed it inappropriate for women to speak in public. Her article is a classic example of scholarship that engages real issues of social inequity. More recently, Campbell has published work that criticizes exclusionary scholarly practices (1995b) and that enacts her advocacy of scholarship that gives voice to previously muted voices (1995a, 1989a, b).
A year before Campbell published her now-classic article, Philip Wander and Steven Jenkins (1972) published an essay, both impassioned and scholarly, urging rhetoricians to make critical responses to the social world and the problems inherent in it. A decade later, Wander extended his ideas in “The Ideological Turn in Modern Criticism” (1983). In the 1983 statement Wander argued for criticism that “recognizes the existence of powerful vested interests benefiting from and consistently urging politics and technology that threaten life on this planet” (p. 18).
Swartz builds on and extends the arguments of Wander and others who have urged scholars to move out of the ivory tower and engage real world problems and issues. Scholarship of this sort makes no claim to be neutral and disinterested. Instead, it is passionate and unapologetically political, [Page xv]and it aims to make a positive difference in the world. Scholars, in other words, acknowledge that they are part of and responsible to the world within which they operate.
Swartz embodies his theoretical arguments through concrete examples and applications within this book. His discussion of specific projects demonstrates that there is no necessary conflict between vigorous engagement with social issues and rigorous, high quality scholarship. I call readers' attention especially to the fifth chapter in this volume. In it, Swartz addresses what may be a sedimented and destructive dichotomy between teaching and scholarship. He demonstrates that scholarship and teaching inform each other in mutually productive ways. This chapter is original and important.
Swartz writes clearly about sophisticated theories that necessitate a fair amount of jargon and “academese.” He has done a marvelous job of making the writing accessible without diluting the complexity of the ideas he considers. The result is a book that invites readers to reconsider what it means to be a scholar and to engage in scholarship.
With Swartz, I believe that egregious inequities and intolerable oppression still poison social life and that these should not be ignored by responsible scholars. Thus, I welcome this book which continues the communication field's long-standing commitment to topics of social justice. The historical and current work by communication scholars on social [in]justice is impressive in both quality and quantity. Swartz's compelling analysis of and advocacy for socially engaged scholarship furthers the goal embraced by many scholars and teachers: contributing to the goal of creating a more kind, more fair world for all who participate in it.Hairston Professor of Communication Studies University of North Carolina, Chapel HillReferences1973).

I would like to thank professor Edward Schiappa at the University of Minnesota for reading earlier drafts of this book. Graduate students Deborah Epperson at Purdue University and Chris Bachelder at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, also provided valuable feedback on these pages as the text evolved from doctoral research into its present form. I would also like to thank Charles Stewart and Don Burks at Purdue University for their mentoring and support. All of the above people, through their prodding questions, have greatly aided in the construction of this book. To them I am grateful. The strengths of this book are due to these people and to what they have taught me; its limitations are my own.
This book, however, is more than just a document of my intellectual growth. It is also a monument to the love and support that my family—Sue Swartz, Robert Swartz, Bubby Rose, and Rui Zhao—has given me over the years.
