The Rhetoric and Composition
Sound Archives




The Rhetoric and Composition Sound Archives is a national organization dedicated to the collection, production, and preservation of audio, visual, and print interviews that document the history of rhetoric and composition studies.

The RCSA seeks to bring together all persons interested in interviews and oral histories as a means of scholarly research by supporting standards of excellence in data collection, documentation, and uses of oral testimony. Operating in tandem with other archival collections, the RCSA will provide audiotape, digitized, and transcribed materials for scholarly research.
