Disability Rhetoric is awarded a 2015 PROSE Award in the Language & Linguistics category.

"Disability Rhetoric is well-crafted, intricately assembled, and carefully presented. Through it Dolmage establishes a long heritage of rhetorical crafters, people whose extraordinary bodies enabled the cultivation of rhetorical skill."—Rhetoric Review

"Dolmage deepens rhetorical studies’ understanding of the ways bodies are inevitably tied up with meaning-making and how disability may extend the ways we understand embodiment, embodied rhetoric, and rhetoric itself."—Rhetoric Society Quarterly

"In lively, fresh prose and with such an accessible style, Dolmage is using disability studies and its approach to bodies/ embodiment to re/place the body in the very old field of rhetoric. Yet he is also using rhetoric, in both theory and practice, to fruitfully expand and explore all the available means of persuasion that are also possible for disability."—Brenda Brueggemann, author of Deaf Subjects
