This special forum was convened to honor the memory of Dr. Daniel C. Brouwer, who died in May 2021. Each contribution is coauthored to specifically honor his commitments to collaboration as a key form of scholarly inquiry, co-mentoring, ethical relationships, and community building. Each essay focuses on an aspect of Brouwer's scholarship, exploring topical, methodological, and theoretical interventions to generate insights and reflections for the field. The essays assess his body of work, its contributions to the study of rhetoric and communication, as well as other areas of study and disciplines. The forum also articulates future directions for scholarship in these areas drawing on insights from Dan's scholarship, and provide resources for scholars to further engage with the broader questions, problems, and possibilities incited by his published work, his robust practices of living, and his untimely death.
