David R. Gruber (Communication Studies) published a new book titled, Splat: On throwing things and the messy politics of material protest. Published in the Intermezzo series supported by the journal Enculturation, the book examines throwing things as a form of political protest. Gruber draws on the history of rhetoric to theorize why some things splattering in a raucous political sphere become significant game changers and others do not. The book is free and available online through Intermezzo.
