PAMLA 2023 RHETORICAL THEORY PANEL

CALL FOR PAPERS

“Rhetorical Theory”
Portland, October 26-29th

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack (USC)

Abstract

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Description

In addition to expanding rhetoric’s disciplinary relations, this panel hopes to push rhetoric beyond persuasion—beyond rhetoric as purposeful action toward some given end, but also as reception, listening, responsivity, relationality, resonance, presence, aurality, and the like. In this way, the panel hopes to push rhetoric’s boundaries and find kinship in new frontiers beyond its disciplinary and historically sanctioned borders.

This panel invites papers which explore rhetorical theory in general, but prefers papers which relate rhetoric, specifically or generally, to the below topics:

o   Rhetorical listening

o   Orality and/vs. aurality

o   Rhetorical new materialisms

o   Sound studies

o   Sonic rhetoric

o   New/materialisms

o   Quantum/physics

o   Agential realism

o   Posthumanism

o   Empiricism

o   Object-oriented rhetoric

o   Object-oriented ontology

o   Affect theory

Abstract Length: 150-200 words

Abstract Deadline: May 31, 2023

Please Submit Abstract through PAMLA website: https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/18733
