I want to recommend the work of Ellen Cushman, a rhetorician who is a member of the Cherokee nation and a professor at Michigan State University.

Here is her CV, and here is her description of how she sees her work as a public intellectual involved in partnerships with the Cherokee nation and other local community organizations

She wrote an award-winning article the year she graduated with her PhD, in 1996.

I also see myself as a rhetorician who is trying to become an agent of social change within the university and local community.

Ellen Cushman is a model to humanities and rhetoric scholars.
