Drs. Michelle A. Holling and Dreama G. Moon published “20/20 in 2020?: Refractive Vision, 45, and White Supremacy” in one of their discipline’s premier journals the Quarterly Journal of Speech. In their article, they examine events leading up to and occurring in 2020 using vision, and refractive diseases and disorders, as a metaphorical framework. The metaphor enables them to make sense of and assess acute events that marked the election season through obstructions that impinge on vision. They also identify competing visions of America/Amerikkka to facilitate explicating the nation’s vision and national vision.
