What is Cultural Rhetorics?

Cultural Rhetorics scholars study meaning-making practices and, sometimes, the things produced through those practices such as baskets, books, dances, poems, videos, websites, buildings, landscapes, among others.

Cultural Rhetorics refers to a set of constellating methodological and theoretical frames that we engage in our scholarly and teaching practices. These frames draw from Rhetoric & Composition Studies, various Ethnic Studies fields, Postcolonial Studies, Decolonial Studies, Gender Studies, Performance Studies, Cultural Studies, and other fields.

What is this conference for?

We seek to encourage conversations about Cultural Rhetorics in the form of scholarly presentations, artistic performances and installations, and workshops that help us make and share knowledge.

Who is this conference for?

Anyone may join the conversation about cultural rhetorics: faculty, graduate students, teachers, scholars, writers, artists, activists. Everyone is welcome to explore Cultural Rhetorics at this conference.

What kinds of proposals can be submitted?

We’re looking for panel presentations, roundtables, performances, media installations, posters, readings, workshops and more that define, expand, illustrate, and/or question what it means to join the cultural rhetorics conversation.

What is the proposal deadline?

Proposal Submissions open: December 1, 2015.

Last date to submit a proposal: March 1st, 2016.
