Rhetoric Review Vol. 25, No. 3, 316–333.


This essay argues that the rhetorical strategies of radical activist groups can
complicate our theoretical understanding of rhetorical situation. It first exam-
ines the textual practices of the Situationist International (SI), a group of French
anarchists who in the 1950s and 1960s purported to make accessible to
non-elites modernist experimentation in art, literature, architecture, and urban
design. It then describes and reflects on what happens when these practices are
utilized in a women’s studies classroom with an explicit activist orientation.
