“The Shadow of Rebellion in the Light of Insurrection: Difference, Division, and Transrhetorical Resistance” by Rachel C. Jackson engages transrhetorical analysis by locating transrhetoricity across historical, geographical, and cultural locations in a comparison of the 1917 Green Corn Rebellion of rural Oklahoma with the January 6th, 2020 Capitol insurrection to follow the rhetorical arc of “resistance” as a trope deployed in both events across a transrhetorical constellation of democratic alliances.
