The CRDM program is looking forward to hosting the 3rd annual Carolina Rhetoric Conference on February 19-20. From this year’s CRC website:
In 2008, the Carolina Rhetoric Conference began as a collaborative effort between the University of South Carolina and Clemson University. The primary goal for the conference was to offer graduate students in participating schools an opportunity to receive feedback on the content of their work and their presentation styles in order to become better prepared to present at larger national conferences. The second annual Carolina Rhetoric Conference has invited students from North Carolina State University to participate in the conference proceedings.
Now in its third year, the Carolina Rhetoric Conference continues to build on those earlier goals as it moves to its third host, North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. Dates for this year’s conference are February 19-20th, 2010.
Joined by our colleagues from Clemson and USC, eight CRDM students will present their research, engaging in some waywith this year’s theme, “Unpacking rhetoric through an unpacking of the digital.” We’re also pleased to have as our keynote speaker Dr. Carolyn Miller, co-founder of the CRDM program and NC State’s SAS Institute Distinguished Professor of Rhetoric and Technical Communication.
In addition to presenting our ongoing research, the CRC offers us a chance to network and get to know fellow rhetoricians-in-training from our neighbor to the south in an informal setting. 3rd-year CRDM student Dawn Shepherd will be live-blogging from the conference, so bookmark her blog now and be sure to check back in on Friday, February 19th and Saturday, February 20th for a unique blend of commentary, insight, and the occasional Carolina Rollergirls reference (probably).
