The Rhetoric Symposium is now accepting proposals for papers and panels from faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars which address contemporary concerns with and applications of phronesis and political rhetoric.

Additionally, we welcome submissions from all areas of study including, but not limited to: Rhetorical Theory, Rhetorical History, Discourse Analysis, Genre Analysis, Composition Theory, Political Science, Communication Studies, Orality, English, Journalism, Education, History, Government, Film Studies, Media Studies, Art, Psychology, Sociology, Disability Studies, Gender Studies, and Minority Studies.
