Hypertextual Ways of Knowing: Mapping the Intersections of Hypertext Theory, Feminist Epistemology, and Feminist Rhetoric
This study demonstrates the convergence of three disciplinary fields: hypertext theory, feminist epistemology, and feminist rhetoric. My central thesis is that the conjunction o f hypertext theory and feminist epistemology allows for a rearticulation of feminist rhetoric. The core o f this study consists of an analysis of five female-authored hypertexts, all of which were composed with Eastgate Systems’ Storyspace hypertext-authoring software: two long hyperfictions, Carolyn Guyer’s Quibbling ( 1992) and Shelley Jackson’s Patchwork Girl (1995); two short hyperfictions, J. Yellowlees Douglas’s ‘I Have Said Nothing” (1994) and Mary-Kim Arnold’s “Lust” (1994); and Diane Greco’s hypertext monograph Cyborg: Engineering the Body Electric (1995).
