On Thursday, January 27th from 1:30-2:30 in Tompkins Hall 131B the NCSU chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America is holding an open kick-off event. We will provide light refreshments and we will have packets of calls for papers and for proposals for rhetoric-based conferences and special issues. The event will give folks a time to meet with other students interested in rhetoric to work through the calls, form panels, and prepare for future presentations. The event is open to any and all with interest in rhetoric.
During “A Call to Rhetoric” we will provide packets of rhetoric calls for conferences, journals, and special issues. Come and provide your ideas as you work through calls individually, together, or work on ideas for constructing panel submissions. Our goal for this activity is to help everyone in attendance prepare to submit at least one paper to an upcoming conference, and we’ll meet this goal by working together and analyzing CFPs and putting our heads together regarding panels and individual presentations.
All are welcome to attend. Interested in rhetoric but not yet an RSA member? No problem, come and learn more about membership and meet other students with shared interests. Already an RSA member? You can transfer your membership to NC State and/or find out more about our chapter’s goals for this year. Not sure if you’re interested in rhetoric but have an idea or a paper you want to submit? Come anyway to check out the calls and enjoy light refreshments and camaraderie.
