Cindy L. Griffin is a professor of communication studies at Colorado State University. She received her PhD from Indiana University and has taught public speaking; civility; gender and communication; communication, language, and thought; contemporary theories of rhetoric; history of rhetorical theories; feminist theories of discourse; identity, voice, and agency; and graduate seminars in women's studies. A proponent of civic engagement and civility in people's communication and their lives, her research interests include developing the theory of invitational rhetoric, advancing theories that help communication scholars and students understand our complex identities, and exploring the relationships between civility, power, and rhetoric. She is the author of Invitation to Public Speaking (Cengage, 2012), Invitation to Public Speaking Handbook (Cengage, 2011); coauthor of Invitation to Human Communication (with Jennifer Bone, 2013), Feminist Rhetorical Theories (with Sonja K. Foss and Karen A. Foss, Waveland, 2006), and Readings in Feminist Rhetorical Theory (with Karen A. Foss and Sonja K. Foss, Waveland, 2004); and coeditor of Standing in the Intersections: Feminist Voices, Feminist Practices in Communication Studies (with Karma R. Ch�vez, SUNY Press, 2012). She has published articles and book chapters that address identities, civilities, feminisms, and rhetorical and communication theories. She also served as the editor of Women's Studies in Communication from 2006-2010.
