About Peitho

Peitho is a peer-reviewed journal of the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition. The journal, like the Coalition, will “promote and foster collaboration and communication” among women in these areas of specialization. Peitho seeks to encourage, advance, and publish original research in the history of rhetoric and composition and thereby support scholars and students within our profession.
