Peitho is a peer-reviewed journal of the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition. The journal exists to support the Coalition’s mission as a “learned society composed of women scholars who are committed to research in the history of rhetoric and composition.” The journal, like the Coalition, will “promote and foster collaboration and communication” 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.
Prior to Fall 2012, Peitho was the newsletter of the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition. Newsletter vols. 11-14 were edited by Barbara L’Eplattenier; all other Peitho newsletter volumes were co-edited by Susan Jarratt and Susan Romano and published with editorial and financial assistance from the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of California Irvine and the Department of English at the University of New Mexico Albuquerque. The editors were assisted by Iveta Cruse at UC Irvine and Carrie Lynn Meadows at New Mexico. Valeria Ferraro at UNM was the web curator.
In Fall 2012, Peitho became a double-blind peer reviewed journal. Volume 15 was edited by Barbara L’Eplattenier and Lisa Mastrangelo. Volumes 16-18 were edited by Jennifer Bay and Patricia Sullivan. More information about Peitho's editorial practices can be found in the journal's Bylaws.
