2014 Cultural Rhetorics Conference
We use the term “cultural rhetorics” to emphasize an orientation to a set of constellating methodological and theoretical frames we engage in our scholarly and teaching practices. Those frames draw from and across Rhetoric & Composition Studies, various Ethnic Studies fields, Postcolonial Studies, Decolonial Studies, Gender Studies, Performance Studies, Cultural Studies, and others.
While cultural rhetorics covers a wide breadth of fields and disciplines, we hadn’t had a central home or space to get together and share our work. The 2014 Cultural Rhetorics Conference: Entering the Conversation, hosted by the Cultural Rhetorics Theory Lab and the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and American Cultures at Michigan State University, was that space.
Please take a look at the conference program from the 2014 conference. Also, check out the Cultural Rhetorics Conference Special Issue in enculturation: a journal of rhetoric, writing, and culture here
